How can a company ensure that its collective intelligence is greater than the sum of its parts? Many companies recognize that collective intelligence—the capability of a group of people to solve complex problems—is an important source of competitive advantage. Collective intelligence depends on integrating team members’ diversity, in terms of cognitive styles and world views. All team members must feel emotionally safe to share opin- ions and ideas and, in turn, be receptive to their colleagues’ viewpoints.

Many organisations have done a lot to help teams function well. Most of this has been around the WHAT– roles, processes, tasks, tools. This has lead to many organisations having team competence. Nonetheless, eve- ryone still experiences many dysfunctional teams. Most of the problem now is in the HOW – how teams inter- act with each other on a human level.
While many acknowledge the dysfunction, they are blind to their own role in this – how constant distraction, interruptions, lack of presence lead to a team atmosphere that lacks emotional safety and engagement. Mind- fulness in teams can profoundly shift this – simply through noticing and acknowledging this deep level of humanity that exists in our interactions and affects outcomes.
Addressing this with simple rituals and habits leads to a pronounced shift in the collective intelligence of teams.
Awareness is the ability to directly know and perceive, to feel, or to be cognizant of events. More broadly, it is the state of being conscious of something.
