“Football is football and talent is talent. But the mindset of your team makes all the difference.”
– Robert Griffin III
From sports to business, there are few things in common that make a team exceptional enough to have a consistent winning season:
“A team of 11 goalkeepers cannot win a game.”
Diversity is one of the key factors to be kept in mind while organizing a team. The ones who are diverse in terms of skills, background and experience and who complete each other rather than simply competing against each other.
“A single weak link in chain can pull whole team down.”
Each and every player should have necessary skill set in their field so that they can produce high quality output.
“The more credit you give away, the more will come back to you. The more you help others, the more they will want to help you.”
– Brian Tracy
While assembling a team, you should keep in mind that all of them want to create a win for the entire team rather than focusing on their individual ambitions.
“Leaders become great, not because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others.”
– John Maxwell
Developing leadership not only refers to people at leadership positions but what it means is encouraging and creating environment for other leaders to come to surface.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
– Proverbs 29:18
When everyone is working towards one vision, then that vision is what makes you keep going when going gets tough.
“Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success.”
– Paul J. Meyer
Teammates will efficiently work together if they have good connection and that can be achieved by creating moments which will help them to know each other in a better way.
