Executive Team Dynamics Impacting Decision-Making
The Executive group at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) invited Dr. Raynolds to do a PD Session to assist with a challenge regarding the choice of a new head-office location, timing of a move, and other issues related to their overall mission. These wer part of a group of decisions with which they had been wrestling (and procrastinating) for some time. They had two head-office locations chosen, but seemed unable to make a final consensus-based decision.
The data generated by the PD uncovered some significant old resentments that had never been fully expressed or addressed, and had remained unspoken. Through working with the data, the team discovered new appreciations of one another’s points of view. Developing a greater understanding of one another lead to more harmonious deliberations on key organizational objectives.
