Sadika Kebbi - "Equipping Others"
IBGR.Network - Profit Radio and to Equipping Others: Episode P4.06.3–How to Build Teamwork in Work Groups.
Greetings from Beirut, Lebanon! How about some greetings in Arabic today? Marhaba, 2ahlan wa sahlan sharftouna—translation: hello, you are most welcome to my show, it’s an honor to have you with me today.
You are listening to IBGR Network, better known as International Business growth Radio Network—IBGR is our call sign for our radio station, but we are more than that- we are a family of entrepreneurs that came together to create a shared space of collaboration where you can join us to help you start your business, enhance your business, grow your business, or reinvent your business. Anything you need to become an exemplary entrepreneur you can find it on our website especially by joining our community of Commerce where you can connect and obtain an answer to all your questions. Connection is the secret to all your inquiries, as it is also the solution for a better world. A business faces tough choices every day, and the bigger it gets the greater the number of people responsible for setting out what you ultimately stand for— profits alone, or principled profits.
I am Sadika Kebbi, your host, coming to you live from Beirut, Lebanon. I am a business consultant, a trainer, coach, and speaker. I am also an NLP practitioner and a meta coach. I created my NGO, or my non-profit organization in 2016, under the name of Being Human, or Kon Ensan in Arabic, with the aim of achieving social cohesion, peace building and women and youth empowerment. The first thing I did to help my team work together was to define my values which made it possible for everyone working for me to know how to behave in any situation.
One’s values should be seen to run through the business—a common thread touching every decision. My NGO has cultivated the reputation for bringing people together. We want people to bond and connect because they want to. In one of our projects, we brought 100 children between 10 and 15 years of age, they were from different religious, social and political backgrounds, and they came together for a three month camp of storytelling and art therapy. One day, I arrived late, but my team already knew what to do; they engaged the kids in storyboarding, and I walked in on a room which walls were covered with multicolored drawings reflecting coexistence.
What you need to know:
The need for cross-cultural, virtual and alliance teams or teams collaborating across organizational boundaries, has increased in recent years. Thus to be a high-performing company in today’s competitive landscape essentially requires high-performing work-teams. The two unavoidably go hand in hand. High-performing teams are those with members whose skills, attitudes, and competencies enable them to achieve team goals. These team members set goals, make decisions, communicate, manage conflict, and solve problems in a supportive, trusting atmosphere in order to accomplish their objectives. Moreover, they are aware of their strengths and their weaknesses and have the ability to make changes when they need to improve their performance.
