What is Expedition Behavior?
SUPPORT THE GROUP’S GOALS
Make sure that everyone knows what the companies goals are. There should also be goals for teams and individuals along the way. Always make sure that the company goals come first and that the group and individual goals are aligned with those of the company.
Of course everyone should contribute when part of a team. Especially during group tasks. This not only offers different perspectives on issues, but also builds community within the company.
HELP OTHERS BUT DON’T DO THEIR WORK FOR THEM
Everyone has behaviors that are fun on the first few days but get old quickly. Keep a handle on these habits. We want room for everyone to have their individuality, but the pressures of working together day in and day out can make once charming behaviors a nuisance.
ADMIT SHORTCOMINGS AND CORRECT THEM
When we make a mistake, we strive to fess up and move on. This lets the rest of the team forgive and help out. Masking mistakes or trying to blame them on someone else or some uncontrollable situation will build tension instead of cohesion.
SUPPORT EVERYONE’S GROWTH
Expeditions exist in part to build skills and strength in humans, as well as to achieve goals. Rotating leadership on teams and an environment where everyone takes turns leading, creating committees, scouting opportunities, and other key roles builds everyone’s leadership ability as long as there are safeguards in place if things go wrong. This redundancy is also a group’s protection against losing one critical person.
When the going gets tough, the tough…don’t react much at all. Being “cow-like” means stay calm and sort it out. This applies to sudden storms or a frustrated teammate. Reacting strongly raises the group’s tension level. A calm demeanor doesn’t mean disregard—but it does help you think, act calmly and make a plan.
We cultivate a mentality where we are relaxed and can do our best work. We are continuously scanning our environment for nuances in our work places, communities, and within ourselves so that we can adapt to the situation accordingly.
Work can be stressful, and even more so when things aren’t going perfectly. We love to laugh and have fun. We keep the atmosphere light… except when it shouldn’t be!
