Elevate Your Impact Now: 7 innovative practices to rehumanize your work

The Classified Checklist for High-Performing Teams

Every impact-driven business leader wants to know how to energize their team to create the ultimate teamwork.

At Higher Playbook, we believe dream teams start with awareness and alignment. To inspire leaders to take the pulse of their people and culture, we’ve outlined the characteristics of high-performing teams into 3 categories, classifications which serve to clarify three key questions at the core of your people and culture:

I. Human Characteristics

Who are the unique individuals operating within this company?

Beneath the roles and responsibilities of a workforce, you’ll find a layer of human potential looking for space to flourish. These are the natural talents, gifts, skills, abilities, virtues, and qualities that inform our individuality as people. With the proper attention toward personal growth and professional development, a workplace can harness their human characteristics.

II. Energetic Characteristics

What is the People’s Potential, as measured by the Energy Leadership Index Assessment (ELI)?

These are the attitudinal tendencies of people, both individually and collectively. Every person on a team brings a unique collection of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to their work. This is their energetic potential, and it is influenced largely by contextual factors of the workplace and how much perceived stress exists on a daily basis. 

When you pulse your people with the ELI, you can start to see high-level themes and patterns. These are energetic characteristics that reflect the commonly held thoughts, feelings, and actions within the team.

III. Contextual Characteristics

What is the company culture are people entraining to?

Every team member can rise as high as the walls – physical and perceptual- of their workplace. Culture is confined by contextual factors: perception, what people experience and observe on a daily basis; operations, what standards and policies exist; accessibility, what opportunities there are to connect and contribute; and climate, what conditions people are consciously and unconsciously confined to. 

These cultural norms become enacted across entire teams, and the contextual characteristics influence how people apply their human and energetic potential in their work. This creates an overall attitude in your workplace called the ARL, average resonating level of energy, which can be a powerful indicator of your company culture.

While every team has its own ways of actualizing their high-performing potential, conscious leaders like you play a powerful part in developing their People & Culture.  Sam Walker, author of The Captain Class, says it perfectly: “the most crucial ingredient in a team that achieves and sustains historic greatness is the character of the player who leads it.”
