I have always been fascinated by the teams that succeed while others fail. The same is true in sports, business, or non-profit organizations.
Here are 4 Things Teams Need to Succeed
1. A team needs a purpose that excites them. Every team needs to be inspired.
2. A team needs an opportunity to gel. Teams emerge when they go through challenges together. Try giving your team a big responsibility and watch them gel.
3. A team needs a coach to empower them. The leader’s job is to put people in the right place to succeed; then train and encourage them.
4. A team needs intimacy, honesty, and accountability to feel united. The best way for this to happen is when the leader models it for the team. The team will not go beyond the leader’s willingness to be transparent and accountable.
