This week, in part 1, we share the areas that are all about developing yourself and your team and then next week, we focus on the steps that leadership teams need to take to engage your teams.
The key to great leaders and teams is knowing yourself, well. Having a strong sense of identify and respect for yourself creates great character and a level of authenticity that inspires others!
Do you and your team really know yourselves? Are you all authentic and inspiring to each other?
Then, all of you, aim high! Aspire to world class and be ambitious. Inspiring leaders and teams help each other to achieve things you didn’t even think were possible. But also, embrace the fear of failure – it’s not always a bad thing and use this to positive affect.
Are you all supporting each other to aim high? Do you talk about this in 1:1s and team meetings?
What gets in the way for many teams is a lack of resilience when things do get tough. Prepare yourself and your teams to be emotionally resilient. Make a long-term commitment to develop and train your teams to win. Give people the tools to control their attention and help them to notice the right things by being in the moment (mindfulness). Do you find your teams crumble under pressure? Are you developing emotional resilience? Our approach to our coaching and leadership programmes, are all based on these leadership lessons. If these have resonated with you, then call us and we would be happy to discuss how we could help.
