Leadership: Engaging Your Team
This video is a wonderful example of the importance of team building in organizations around the world. Mr. Wright did a wonderful job illustrating this throughout his video with the use of visual aids and also with real statistical data that especially highlights how teams impact companies internally and externally. Spending the extra time to learn how to grow your business really pays off in the long run for those who really understand that people drive business goals, not business goals driving people.
Leadership: Engage your Team: Create a Culture of Engagement
The concept of teamwork has been discussed in previous posts, but it can never be discussed enough. Realizing the potential and opportunities for growth within your team as a manager or leader is essential. Your people will make or break the end result that you are banking on. Employees want to contribute and employee engagement is critical.
That is why you have to take the time to learn about every employee that works for you or with you. Everyone is important and can add significant value to the project. You must capture the imagination of everyone involved on a team assignment or project, down to the lowest level. In addition, you must as a leader show him or her that they are valued both individually and also collectively as a member of a very important team. Leaders have the opportunity and obligation to go beyond training initiatives to do the right thing without taking shortcuts.
Companies spend millions and millions of dollars trying to get this point across. Instead of spending significant amounts of money and training dollars on concepts that are not effective, choose a business partner who truly believes in the mission and vision that you are trying to lead your employees on. If someone you are working with does not have your best interest at heart, it should be time to reconsider the investment that you are making financially and in the amount of resources that are being allocated for little to no return on your capital investment. Power of One is committed to your organizational goals and understands what it takes to lead the way in employee engagement and also in a team oriented approach for the long-term success of your organization.
