Sometimes in business we lose joy in the day-to-day grind of business, our tasks, and in our interactions with customers and suppliers. As leaders, we have a responsibility to make sure the magic is there, that we feel joy and our team as well. Whether we are achieving or struggling, we have to find ways to ‘feel the wind in our hair’. To take pride in our work and make sure those on our teams are as well.
You can do this by making sure the goals and vision are clear. Remind yourself and your team how you are progressing toward those goals. See the ‘cathedral’ or ‘masterpiece’ you are building. Without these reminders and encouragement people lose motivation. Things begin to run on auto-pilot, without the creativity and energy they had when it was new and exciting.
As leaders, we have to develop the people around us, influence and mold the culture of our business. Every leader, just like a good coach, has to find what motivates the players on his/her team, to perform better than we thought we could. This will ensure your entire team will come along with you on the journey to your goals. Help them see what can happen if they perform at their absolute best.
