IF YOU LEAD A TEAM you have an awesome responsibility to BUILD A CULTURE OF:
RESOURCEFULNESS by providing mentors for every member on the team. Leverage the strengths of each to make certain they understand that there is not one coach/mentor (you), everyone on the team can assist in providing their best practices and strategies for success.
WORTH by assigning topics for team members to cover in your meetings, providing them with the opportunity to see each other in leadership roles.
SUPPORT by pairing them up according to what they need, so one who is struggling with a skill can partner with one who excels in that area and can share their approach and methodology while building comradery.
SUCCESS by celebrating even the smallest wins remembering that if you are in double overtime with 2 seconds left and the person at the free throw line makes one shot that wins the game, even if that was the only point scored the entire game, it made every one on the team a winner.
Business Tip: “It’s not the lack of resources, it’s your lack of resourcefulness that stops you.” – Tony Robbins
