Vacuums Don’t Work

Leadership doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It doesn’t happen isolated. It happens in the context of a group. And unless you understand how your leadership behaviors relate to group behavior, you will have hit-or-miss success.

Successful leaders are part of a wholly functioning system. To create a high performing team, you need to focus at the root cause of group dysfunction. You need to look inside the group dynamic.

“TIGERS framework syncs well with transparency across all roles in life, allowing one to proceed smoothly from family to career to community and back again without having to adjust one’s character and integrity in incongruous ways.”

Create Synergy

Synergy = 1+1 >2

The TIGERS 6 Principles are synergistic with each other. A positive improvement in any of the 6 Principles creates a multiplying effect. When you make adjustments to one principle you experience a greater overall outcome than the effort you put into the one principle. This helps you do more with less.

Correlation means the improvement in one will increase one or more of the others. Our research found that Interdependence and Success are highly correlated with all the other principles. So, if you make an improvement in Interdependence (collaboration), you may experience an increase in all of the principles.

Create a coaching culture where team members correct themselves.

The Core Cause

The TIGERS 6 Principles approach leadership as a component of group dynamics and group process.

We’ve researched and studied group dynamics for over 30 years. That’s how we discovered the 6 attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that sit at the core of group dynamics and effective group process. The result is the TIGERS 6 Principles.

The TIGERS 6 Principles (Trust, Interdependence, Genuineness, Empathy, Risk and Success) have been proven through two independent research studies to accurately predict group behavior and prescribe remedies for leadership and group dynamics.

Predict with Certainty

The TIGERS 6 Principles are fundamental to all human relationships and impact your business’s outcomes whether you include them or not. The absence or presence of these principles predicts with certainty your teams’ results. When you desire results that diminish harmful conflict and employee relationship breakdown that leads to high turnover of your mid-career employees, it is important to know where to start.  

The TIGERS Workforce Behavioral Profile assesses your current situation. The results point you in the correct direction for leadership and group development improvement. Then track the success of your interventions as improved collaboration, cooperation, engagement and overall performance take shape.

Uplift Performance

Managers set the tone for your work culture. Department surveys give your leaders the information they need for group improvement and professional development. Improvements in behavior and beliefs uplift group performance and this is measurable in your bottom line. 

Successful leaders are part of a wholly functioning system. To create a high performing team, focus at the root causes of dysfunction rather than symptoms.
