Leaders. What are you doing to build your team?

Are you conscious of HOW you’re leading?

Are you too focused on why people need to have confidence in you rather than confidence in themselves as part of your Leadership Team?

Building a Strong Team

The Summer Olympics begin this week following a one year delay as a result of the COVID pandemic. While we tend to focus on great individual achievements, most athletes are participating as part of an Olympic TEAM, assembled from among athletes with a wide variety of talent and experience.

The Team aspect is most evident in gymnastics, where only two people are automatically selected based on their scores. The others are chosen by the coaches to create a balance of skills so that the TEAM can win the team competition.

Mixed-Gender Events at the Tokyo Olympics

While mixed-gender events are not new to the Olympics, this year, they will be double the number of such events in the 2016 Rio Games.

The total is up to 18 … including swimming, track and field, archery and six more … and it’s a great step forward to integrate the female and male athletes, a scenario leaders face every single moment of every single day.

You’ve heard it said that you go farther with a group than alone. Imagine the power of your team when it’s not a crowd of followers, but a cohesive group of leaders.

Maybe it’s time to start inspiring others to be those leaders?
