How to Cultivate Radical Alignment and Idea Activation with MURAL

Thursday, June 2, 2022

Deep within the heart of a true leader, there is no greater satisfaction than seeing people work together seamlessly on a task. When a leader watches his team working together efficiently and effectively, he is confident that the organization is enjoying the benefits of their full potential.

Anything that supports this harmonious dynamic is certainly an asset to the business. When we choose to equip our workforce with tools, we carefully consider what will help our employees be more productive, effective, and efficient in collaborating with each other.

The same concept applies for the way we communicate with each other. We want to make sure to use the most effective channels to get our message across clearly and concisely. For these reasons, many organizations choose Mural as their workspace.

Mural is an online collaboration tool that helps people visually brainstorm, plan and organize ideas together. It’s simple to use and makes it easy for team members to contribute their thoughts and ideas in a creative and visual way.

Here’s what makes Mural your next best investment for cultivating radical alignment and idea activation within your company.

  1. Superb remote facilitation

With Mural, leaders can facilitate better team collaboration by providing a workspace where they can easily share their ideas and thoughts. Mural also allows leaders to get real-time feedback from their team so they can make better decisions. Participants are encouraged to think outside the box and push their boundaries while keeping on track through each phase of the activation session. Mural has the qualities that make up next-level oversight that every leader needs.

  1. Time-boxing that ensures delivery

Mural’s time-boxing feature is a great way to keep team members focused and on track. By setting a timeframe for each task, leaders can encourage their team to utilize their time efficiently and work together to deliver results on time. It’s always healthy to apply a certain amount of pressure that encourages people to perform at their best. If it’s true that pressure makes diamonds, it’s because this can inspire people to work in rhythm and take creative risks with less room for self-censorship.

  1. A diverse and co-creative space

Mural is not only a great space for leaders to facilitate better collaboration, it’s also a great way for team members to create and contribute their ideas. With Mural, teams can work on projects together in real-time and see each other’s contributions as they happen. Team members can build on each other’s ideas to create something even better. In the end, the credit goes to the whole team, and each member feels good about what they have contributed to the larger picture.

With these crucial elements, it’s quite clear that Mural has been purposely designed to give the creative and collaborative process the boost that it needs. Radical alignment and idea activation are essential for any company that wants to be successful. These two ideals have always seemed to be rather hard to reach – until today. It’s quite a huge bonus when your team is, quite literally, on the same page, as they get to have fun while doing the work, too. And with Mural, leaders have everything they need to make this happen.
