though we all probably know a few aliens in our team or wonder what
planet some people come from. SETI stands for Social and Emotional Team Intelligence – and every team
could do with more of it.
It’s not science fiction, it’s
science-fact. Everything that happens in a team can be traced back to
SETI. The inner-space, not the outer-space, is the new frontier for
high-performing teams. No matter what kind of team, or what type of work
it does, every team on planet earth relies for its effectiveness and
productivity, on emotional interactions. SETI is the new science of
getting along well with others – and research reveals that this ability
may account for as much as 40% of team performance...
Vulcans and cyborgs aside, it’s
impossible for a group of earthlings to interact without emotions. We’re
brain-wired to. Some interactions and emotions are constructive – they
contribute to team cohesion and collaboration. Others are destructive.
They threaten teams with disintegration. We all need SETI because teams
by their very nature, are social entities first, work vehicles second.
That’s the order it happens in. Teams need to be able to handle the
whole inner-space continuum of both beneficial and disruptive emotions
that manifest amongst its members.
Individuals need emotional intelligence
to manage their own emotions and navigate relationships - and the team
as an entire entity needs social intelligence to handle the inevitable
conflicts that arise, persevere in the face of setbacks, tackle tough
challenges, connect, get along well with team-mates, read what’s going
on for each other and harness the energy to take concerted action.

Who's this Clinic for?
Participants at our EI clinics come from
the ranks of leaders, professionals and workers of all sorts. We have
specialist EI clinics for leaders and staff but this clinic is for
anyone – leader or team members – who want to do something about
improving the emotional climate of the team they work in. We often find
that teams get better results when a number of people from the same unit
decide to come along together to do this work-out and plan changes.
