Leadership is an art based on simplicity. A vision has no point if it is not understood.
4 Ways Leaders Build Teams
Leadership is one part leader and nine parts team. Leadership is a team sport. It means getting everyone involved in reaching the goal.
Marathon runners are rugged athletes.....but usually they are not leaders; they compete alone. Leadership is a team sport. It means getting everyone involved in reaching the goal.
1. Leaders do more than direct individuals...They build a team.
They look at the various strengths and abilities of individuals and then put them into a working unit. Leaders have both personal goals and corporate goals. They strive to excel individually; but their greatest delight is helping the whole team achieve.
2. Leaders understand the importance of good communication.
They know that the purpose of the team is nothing until it is put into motion, There must be interaction or else the work will be disjointed and the workers will be divided.
3. Leaders build morale and create community.
They keep the mood positive. They compliment and praise individual and team efforts. I believe it is the coaches job to get the team together and get their morale up...This is a leaders job.
"Coming together is a beginning;
Keeping together is progress;
Working together is success."
-- Henry Ford
4. A leader recognizes outstanding achievements
They know that propelling one of the team members forward will push the rest of the team to achieve more.
Leadership is one part leader
and nine parts team.
Remember: Leaders are team builders.
May the Lord bless you and yours in a great way,
