Theatre in Relationships

One of the fundamental insights that emerges from a “CorporateTheatre” workshop is that true and fulfilling relationships are possible only between ‘Actors’ and not between ‘Characters’.

As characters we take on rigid patterns of behaviour, hierarchy, and conflict – King, Slave, Assassin, Victim, Oppressor, Oppressed, Deceiver, Deceived, etc. Even so, while the hierarchy and conflict of the characters are essential to the play and deeply respected, there is no hierarchy or confrontation at the level of the actor. Each actor is doing their best to make every other actor’s performance also effective and convincing. The play is a typical example of collective success, when the audience gets up and gives you a standing ovation.

This has great significance in our life’s relationships too.  Read More…

The Wisdom of Teams – 24: Power of Teams & Redifining Paradigms

(In this series of posts offering excerpts from the book, ‘The Wisdom of Teams’ by Jon Katzenbach and Douglas Smith (Harvard Business School Press), the excerpts are in bold.)

Performance results—that’s what teams are all about. When the goals of the team do not define specific results that are importantto the overall company’s goals, team accomplishments are unlikely to be very powerful. Similarly, performance challenges create real teams. Hence, if a potential team exists in a corporate environment where company goals are unclear or confused, both its challenge and its accomplishments are likely to be severely constrained. Read More…
