The company’s Dashcam provides downloadable videos, real-time alerts, and live GPS location services before, during, and after a vehicle incident.
Moreover, inclusiveness is essential for forming teams that work effectively, as Karen Main, the founder and CEO of Innovations in Training, demonstrated in a hands-on exercise with attendees.
Main directed attendees to work with the people sitting at their table on a team name, list three characteristics of an ideal team player on a large sheet of paper, sign the paper to indicate their agreement, and to collaborate on building with Legos a model of a small building that was located outside the conference room in 17 minutes. Each team member had assigned Lego pieces that only they could place. They were only allowed to go outside the room to look at the model one at a time.
After attendees completed the exercise, many said that it was stressful, there were distractions, and they didn’t want to let their team down — very much like their jobs.
Also mirroring their daily work experience, some said, was the fact that adapting to the rules of the game to complete the task together was key.
“It’s OK to not get it right the first time because then you form a strategy,” one attendee said. “You don’t have a strategy the first time, because you’re learning and figuring it out.”
Main pointed out that because players couldn’t place any Legos other than their own, each of their contributions were important.
To underscore the importance of a solid team, Main shared that people who don’t consider themselves part of a team at work are 8% engaged. Engagement goes up to 17% among those who are on a team. And engagement shoots up to 45% among employees on a team with a leader they trust.
“Instead of just showing up, we want people to be interested, feel they belong, that they are a part of a team,” she said.
