130p Class: Courageous Communication
To enter flow state, individuals on a team must be able to release the self-conscious and analytical mind, individuals must receive clear and unambiguous feedback about their progress. Open communication provides this required feedback so that teammates know whether their actions are effectively contributing to achieving the goal, or if they need to adjust their course. Open communication can be assisted with stakeholder led feedback, psychometric assessments, subjective reports, and objective measures of goal progress - all of which can be presented visually to the team via a scoreboard system. The process of providing constructive feedback and offering advice for performance improvement contributes to creating the holistic focus of the team. Weekly performance reviews enable team members to hold themselves and each other accountable for achieving the group’s goal and reinforces the interdependent nature of fulfilling the collective ambition. Moreover, open communication can strengthen relationships which is conducive to creating the team flow.

330p Class: High Skill Integration & Commitment
The ‘golden rule of flow’ is engaging in tasks in which there is a balance between high challenges and high skills. The need for high skills is common among group work as teams are typically formed to complete challenging goals that cannot be completed on their own. Key to this prerequisite is ensuring that each member of the team can bring their greatest skills and strengths to the task so that the optimal balance is struck for each team member. Team flow requires all participants to play an equal role in fulfilling the team’s collective ambition and shared goal. This requires all team members to have equal skill level. If the team does not have compatible skill levels, advanced members may become bored and disengaged while less developed members may become anxious and frustrated. Moreover, team flow requires equal participation in meetings - meaning that it is blocked when some individuals dominate the meeting while others socially loaf and disengage.
