In this episode, Michelle and Jan discuss the importance of internal processes and procedures which successful teams follow. By having clear and organised actions planned for regular and unexpected situations, attaining goals and solving problems can actually be simple and easy.
Setting expectations also sets teams up for success, and keeping everyone in the loop on procedures can prevent and solve future conflicts. Jan and Michelle then help us understand how processes for handling meetings, decisions, conflicts, and obstacles benefit everyone on all levels of a team.
