Before the dawn of a new year brings in an anticipation of success and change there are a couple of things you need to know…
A team is only as successful as their actions.
Let me elaborate…
Every successful team needs a goal, a vision to strive towards.
I’m not just talking about profits if you’re in business or wins if you’re in sports.
I’m talking about the powerful actions that create real change!
When you don’t have a vision, your team will lose their purpose and motivation and when these two key components are lost, their actions will be detrimental to the team.
When a person feels they don’t have a purpose or lacks motivation what do they do?
That’s right, They quit or look for another team.
Are you part of a team lacking a purpose and motivation?
Are you a leader in business or a coach in sports and the results aren’t in your favour?
Then it’s time to do things differently.
Here are three changes of action you can do, starting in the new year that will change your purpose, motivation and therefore outcomes quicker than you believe!
- Don’t aim for the end result and expect to hit the end result. When you tell your team to hit targets or go get the win, you’re forgetting the most important rule when it comes to motivating people. People need to feel valued and have a purpose.
- People feel valued and have purpose when they are allowed to express their ideas and concerns. By creating a forum where ideas and concerns can be expressed without the fear of judgment or criticism, but rather expressed with encouragement, support and positivity, there will be a shift in focus and productivity.
- When people are allowed to express their ideas and concerns, not only do their value and purpose increase, but the solutions to the issues and challenges can be found
Are you unsure about this? Does this look like something you like the idea of but fear taking action to make it happen?
Perhaps you’ve forgotten what it’s like to feel valued and have purpose because it’s been so long?
When presented with something new there’s always a sense of the unknown and with the sense of the unknown comes non-action. All you will do is allow this idea to fall by the wayside and allow your current struggle to continue, hoping something will change and tolerating your situation.
Hoping and tolerating will only keep you in that stagnant, good for nothing, ‘what’s the point’ place of mind and action and as a human, you deserve so much more than that.
If you like the idea but unsure what to do, let me leave you with this…
THOSE WHO SEEK HELP AREN’T WEAK BUT SHOW COURAGE IN TIMES OF ADVERSITY
