Flow Trigger #12 – Equal Participation (and Skill Level)

Written by Stuart Haden on July 13, 2016

The 5th social trigger is Equal Participation (and Skill Level). Nothing detracts more from group flow than people who aren’t pulling their weight. The opportunity to contribute equally is vital.

Thus everybody’s skill levels need to be on a par with each other whilst embracing the diversity of contribution. Naturally we are looking for flattened teams, hierarchy often detracts from equal participation and flow.

If you are looking for the key to equal participation then you may well benefit from analysing skills. To be on the safe side developing skills often increases the odds of equal participation.
