The last part of our interview with Sebastian Schieke looks at how we fail to educate people on how to work as a team. We have activities as part of education that give experience with teamwork. However, we tend to skip the essential parts, like how to work with others and assess what motivates us.
Better Awareness Helps Us Work As A Team
One of the first things we need to understand is what motivates us and how we communicate best. Then, we can work on matching those attributes with those of our teammates. That is an essential step in teamwork and creating high-performing teams. We build from each member’s unique skills and drivers to craft a well-oiled team. It is often called an emotional quotient; that is how we work best together.
A Little Background
Sebastian grew up in the communist part of Germany, where entrepreneurship did not exist. Since moving to west Germany at 14, he has always wanted to run the show. He never had a “real job.” His journey brought him to where he is currently: An Entrepreneur, CEO Mentor+Coach, Business Angel, and Investor. He founded, ran, and grew multiple 7-figure companies. Likewise, he invests in startups, mentor and coach CEOs, and help them to move their teams forward. He has also gone through challenging times. He knows what it takes and how to get there, taught by business and life and not only through seminars and books.

There are two facts we have to accept: Change and Failure. Change is the only constant in today’s world. We have to embrace it. Failure is inevitable; sooner or later, we all fail. Resilient leaders are not afraid of change; for them, change is fuel. Resilient leaders are not afraid to fail because failure means learning. The only difference is how fast we get up when life gets us down. Our passion is to help you increase your resilience.
If you run a growing organization, you know that the performance of your teams is key to your current and future success. The team members need the right mindset, openness, agility, and up-to-date skills and should live and breathe the philosophy of constant and never-ending improvement.
Developing resilient leadership and high-performance teams is no magic but focused and ongoing work. We use data and proven personality assessments to help you and us understand who you and your team members are. We can measure behavioral, motivational, and thinking tendencies and many more. It is like an MRI – you will be surprised.
