Straight Talk Leadership Seminars: 14 Tips to Unify Your Team to Drive Results [NOOK Book]

Overview

I love baseball. Seeing an outfielder make an outstanding catch, watching a pitcher throw a no-hitter, or hearing the crack of the bat when a slugger hits one out of the park is a real thrill to me. Growing up, I always imagined playing professional baseball and could have made it to the big leagues except I couldn’t hit as well, throw as hard, or field as good (i.e., I was a far cry from being talented enough!). As an adult, one thing that I have grown to appreciate about baseball is the teamwork involved in ...

Overview

I love baseball. Seeing an outfielder make an outstanding catch, watching a pitcher throw a no-hitter, or hearing the crack of the bat when a slugger hits one out of the park is a real thrill to me. Growing up, I always imagined playing professional baseball and could have made it to the big leagues except I couldn’t hit as well, throw as hard, or field as good (i.e., I was a far cry from being talented enough!). As an adult, one thing that I have grown to appreciate about baseball is the teamwork involved in winning games. A pitcher can pitch a great game, but if the offense doesn’t produce any runs they can still lose the game. Or, you can have the best home-run hitter in the league on your team and you could still lose 100 games in a season. The team has to work together to deliver results, in the form of wins.

This couldn’t be more true when it comes to work teams. You could have an outstanding team member who nails every one of her deliverables, but if the team leader is weak or if other team members aren’t doing what is expected of them then the entire team is going to fail. While the one team member is a stand-out performer, she is unable to carry the weight of the entire team herself. She will be a star on a losing team.

As team leaders, we face a daunting challenge of how to unify our teams to where they are able to work together in delivering greater results than any one team member could do on his or her own. Whether it be due to lack of clarity in roles & responsibilities, team infighting, poor accountability, or non-recognition of results, a team that doesn’t perform well as a team won’t deliver what the organization needs and will get the team leader voted off the island.

This seminar is focused on helping team leaders understand five key factors which contribute to a unified team and helping them put changes in place to better align and unify their work teams and deliver outstanding results for their organization. Also keep in mind that these are not the only factors which unify teams. They are, in my experience, five key factors which contribute to team success and are also prone to be overlooked. So, without further ado, let’s get to business…
