This weekend saw the first of our rugby trial games, played in hot conditions testing both physical and mental strength. Over the course of the trial, the team grew together, developing their culture through backing each other and working out their strengths to create momentum.
Does this resonate and can you relate to work teams you are involved with? Effective Leaders are able to build the culture of getting the best out of their team. With both the boss and team members being able to show this leadership, the potential for performance is high and momentum is created.
Here are 3 tips to help your team build momentum:
- Set a clear strategy - teams who are clear on standards, expectations and aligned on the question of "So What?" are more likely to deliver growth. Know where you are headed and why and the team can follow.
- Provide structure - having a process for your team to deliver their strategy will allow each member to be clear on their roles. This clarity will foster open communication, collaboration and support as responsibilities will be clear
- Take action - talk in the huddle is just talk unless we put that talk in to action. Make that phone call, send that email and do that client visit that will build rapport and help your team get closer to it's desired results.
This week, ask yourself whether you are using these three tips. If you are then your results should reflect that.... if not, or if you are not getting the results you want, you have some choices to make.
If this resonates, please forward to your networks. If you need to take action and aren't clear how to send me a note at email@example.com and we will get in contact.
Cheers and have an awesome week!
