There is a massive difference between being a group of people who work together and being a high-performing team. It doesn’t matter if you are working in an agile organization or one that is more traditional, a group of people who share an understanding of how they work, why they work, and how they can show up and support one another every day are going to achieve greater things than those who lack that understanding.
If this is something your team is struggling to develop, this podcast will provide a case study of how you and the people you work with can begin to develop the type of connection they need to rise and thrive together. In this podcast, Erich Hahn joins me to talk through the experience he and his team had in working through the Modus Right Environment Exercises (REE). Erich and have both been through the Modus Institute’s Lean Agile Visual Management program where we went through Modus Right Environment Exercises with teams and saw firsthand how they transform the way people form as a team. Whether you are starting up with a new team, or are working on one that has become a bit stuck, these tools will deeply impact how you engage with one another.
One note, before you watch or listen to the podcast, the names of these tools will be familiar, but they are not the same ones you’ve used in the past. As you’ll see in the interview, Modus Institute uses these tools in a unique way that provides layers of insight that you would not gain otherwise.

Jim Benson is finishing up work on a new book The Collaboration Equation and in this episode of the podcast, the creator of Personal Kanban joins me to talk all about why we often resist collaboration, and why it is a necessary element of everything each of us does. Working through a number of real-life examples we discuss some of the ingredients you need to design a system that supports its participants and fosters a culture of collaboration.
This interview is going to challenge your understanding of collaboration, offer you a lens to see collaboration in a deeper, more lasting way, and offer you a sneak peek of what is coming up in Jim's new book.

Contacting Jim Benson:
Modus Institute recently introduced its new Certification and Accreditation Programs in Lean-Agile Visual Management (LA-VM). This is something they have been working on developing for 12 years. In this episode of the podcast, Jim Benson joins me to discuss Modus’s new offerings. During the interview we discuss Systems Thinking and how it figures into the LA-VM program. Jim also explains why it took 12 years to develop, how each program works, and the tools that these programs will add to a knowledge worker’s arsenal.
