Simple Tools for Stronger Teams

Don't run from simple tools or simple models when working to build a team. The danger is not in the use of simple models, it is in the simplistic interpretation of the resulting insights. Simple models in the hands of strong facilitators and insightful translators can be profound and powerful. They can cut through the "consultant speak" accusations and get people thinking in a fresh way. They can surprise doubters with the richness of the results and win over worriers with their ease. In times of trouble, when people feel conflicted, complexity only gives rise to doubt and skepticism. Give stressed-out people well-designed simplicity and give them the space and freedom to break barriers, bond with colleagues and explore new frontiers. They become powerful allies in whatever you seek to accomplish.
