The Oil Change: A Tool for Tribal Leadership Stage 4 Teams

Many times, teams or triads get stuck. Results aren’t occurring; people aren’t doing what they promised, and resentment amongst the team members happens.

In the book,  Tribal Leadership: Leveraging Natural Groups to Build a Thriving Organization, by Dave Logan, John King, and Halee Fischer-Wright, on page 178-179, the authors provide a tool, that they named an “Oil Change.” It is very simple to use and we recommend that a triad use it at least once every 90 days.

It consists of three questions:

  1. What is working well?
  2. What is not working well?
  3. What can the team (triad) do to make the things that are not working well, work?

How can utilizing this oil change help your triad?
