In my podcast episode, A Powerful Tool for Managers, Teams and Leaders, I share one of my favorite tools that is useful in all areas of your life, regardless if you are an executive, a formal people manager, or you are in a family leadership position. 

 

ARCI is a tool I teach to my executive teams when I'm doing executive team development and offsite training. 

 

It's a framework. It's a way of understanding the ‘who’ behind ‘who will do what by when’, which is the keystone of high integrity and clear agreements.

 

Integrity breaches are one of the most destructive forces in organizations, teams and families. 

 

When we don't do what we say we'll do, or when we create agreements that are vague, impossible to understand, ill-defined, or low integrity, this leads to a lot of drama. 

 

Unchecked integrity breaches create unhealthy forms of conflict and strife, and take up a lot of time and energy. 

 

ARCI is a framework for understanding, developing and tracking the structure of an agreement and how everyone involved is going to cooperate and coordinate action together. 

 

You can apply it to how a team generally operates. 

 

You can apply it to a process. 

 

You can apply it to a project. 

 

You can apply it to achieve a specific goal, and you can apply it to all different layers. 

 

With ARCI in your tool arsenal, you can start having breakthroughs in muddled situations in your work and home right away.
