Successful Leadership – The Power of Teamwork and 4 Keys to Creating a Winning Team!
Successfully Lead a Winning Team and Together Achieve Incredible Things
Successful leaders have discovered
the power of teamwork.
Much can be accomplished when
working together with others.
However, it is not just a numbers game;
the key here is working together.
Getting the job done requires a winning team.
“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
— John C Maxwell
Teams come in all shapes and sizes; from married couples, or small business partnerships, to large organizations of all sorts. A team not only provides companionship but it helps accomplish goals.
Every team requires a leader, and a successful leader knows that there is power in creating a winning team. However, simply having a team of people can be useless.
On the other hand, developing a winning team multiplies a leader’s value and makes them better than they would be on their own. It enables them to do what they do best and tap into the resources that those on the team do best. Then, incredible things happen and everyone on the team wins.
“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow…And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
— Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
4 Keys to Creating a Winning Team:
1. Develop a Winning Attitude in Team Members
A winning attitude is a positive attitude and must be prevalent. A winning attitude is developed in team members and they believe in their leader, themselves, their teammates, and the vision to be accomplished. Negative thinking is not allowed to creep in and hinder the task at hand.
2. Teach the Value of Personal Development and Character Building
Each team member as an individual must keep improving. Why? Because the highest reward for their efforts isn’t what they get from it, but the person they become because of it. And without personal growth they become a weak individual and a weak link on the team.
3. Empower Teammates
Winners are encouragers and empower each other to be more and do more. They strive to make their teammates more successful. Empowered teammates maintain a thriving atmosphere with an expectancy to win.
4. Instill the Importance of Playing to Win
A successful team plays to win. They know the difference between playing to win and playing not to lose is often the difference between excellence and average. They don’t play to ‘give it a try’, they play to reach their goal; they play to win.
Bottom line: A successful leader understands the power of teamwork and the importance of creating a winning team. They know that by doing so, incredible things happen and everyone wins as they grow and develop individually and as a team.
May you successfully lead a winning team and together achieve much and experience an abundance of growing prosperity!
