A commitment to doing something big, bold and meaningful in 2016 is what will inspire, drive, or even compel a new generation of employees to achieve excellence.
Here are five rules to create a team with purpose in 2016.
Align your team with a vision, mission and values. Dedicate yourself to something bigger than yourselves.
Engage your team in the process, as a result they will feel emotionally connected to change. You have great ideas, but no one person is more intelligent than the group.
Show a genuine interest in developing your people, encourage them to look, act and feel like leaders. Your role as leader is to prepare your people for the next step in their career.
To make change happen requires an environment free of fear and anxiety. Learn how to fail fast and learn quickly so that you stay agile.
You have your house in order; everyone is engaged and has clarity for what is expected of them. Now you must hold them accountable giving regular feedback when possible.
Follow these five rules and you will accelerate team performance and make real change happen.
Don’t follow the results, follow your purpose and the results will follow you
