DEVELOP A TEAM
Teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. Together there is strength.
Not everyone wants to build a global empire. Not everyone wants to become an employer. However, if you have a big dream, then you will have to bite the bullet and build a team around you. On your own, you can only do so much.
Developing a team does not happen by osmosis. You must be intentional about it. In fact, this is the area where most business owners throw their hands up and say “Never again!”. But it doesn’t have to happen that way. Having a team around you can make your vision happen OR as many business owners can attest to – it can drive you up the wall or even send your broke! You must therefore develop and implement processes and systems to manage the team growth process.
Being intentional means:
- Seeking out training and material to develop your own leadership skills. John Maxwell said “Leadership is influence. Nothing more, nothing less.” Without influence, your business will fail. Your leadership will determine whether your people will work effectively or whether you spend your days putting out fires going from one crisis to another. Leadership and transformation, particularly servant leadership must then come from the top. “People do as people see.” Example sets the standards. You cannot take your team where you haven’t been.
- Providing training that will both up-skill your team to be able to do their job effectively as well as develop their character, mindset and values. For some businesses, this could mean a massive culture change. For others, it will reinforce and grow on the culture that already exist.
Business masterminds can be specifically tailored to focus on growth, leadership, team development and communication to meet your needs so as to maximise your investment in the training. This can be achieved by using the most appropriate learning and development, leadership and team building models including but not limited to Leadership Games, DISC Psychometric Assessments and Masterminds.
