If I was to ask you what are your dreams, your goals, your aspirations, what would your answer be? Are you satisfied with exactly where you are? Are you comfortable in the position you are in at the moment? In other words, are you completely satisfied with where you are in your life that you can afford to put yourself in cruise control?

Well I challenge you to strive for something better by not getting complacent and resting on your laurels of past success that you limit yourself from the ability to accomplish new things within your personal and professional life.

The trick to getting better all the time is to start small. Pick a few things that you can focus on immediately that are a high, accomplishable priority and work towards getting those things done first and then set your sights on more challenging things.

As you start to work off one item at a time toward your goal you will build the competence and the confidence to continue towards bigger and better things, ultimately leading you to a much wider/broader range of success.

“If a leader finds a shortcoming in an employee, it is better to teach them than to judge them.”

Have you ever had a boss or supervisor that would just identify every fault you ever had or made?  I have had a few and found that their judgmental preaching was destructive instead of constructive. When trying to build or develop your team, it is better to complete your team members with positive re-enforcement than it is to defeat them with negativity.  As a leader you need to learn to be empathetic in order to by sympathetic.  By putting yourself in the shoes of the employee you can then begin to understand that there are many things that could have prevented the employee from putting forth their best effort in any given situation.  

Below are some tips and suggestions that will help establish or maintain effective team building.  These concepts will prove to be beneficial not only to the individual team members but the organization as well.

    • Giving your employees the benefit of the doubt that maybe they didn’t understand the intent of the task by not being too good to repeat the task or restate the intent another way so that it is understood 
    • Developmental counseling sessions that identify overall strengths and weaknesses to develop a team member positively into the employee you want them to be and the success they want to be
    • Start a Junior Leadership Program in which you give everyone a chance to be a leader and learn from those experiences.  This proves to be an effective system that enables leader growth and development by giving your employees the knowledge, insight, and most importantly the confidence to lead in any given situation.

These are just a few.  Join the conversation by sharing your thoughts and ideas with the group.
