Topic: *TO DO GREAT THINGS, BUILD GREAT TEAMS* Part 10
_*”And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you along in your obedience. Overwhelm them with appreciation and love!”*_ 1 Thessalonians 5:12, 13, MSG
Great leaders build great teams. Great teams are made up of great people with complimentary abilities working together towards the same goal. Thus, a great leader ushers others into greatness. *_You are not great until those you are leading become great._*
Great people make people feel great around them. A “small person” can’t make anyone feel great around him; he can’t give what he doesn’t small.
You cannot make your people feel great, unless you see greatness in them first. See it, cultivate it, and celebrate it…
People work well when they are feeling well about themselves.
Oftentimes, people who don’t put in the best in the work don’t feel valued and appreciated.
*_People naturally, add the most value, where they are most valued._*
Show appreciation whenever a team member does something well.
_*When people are celebrated for their good work, not only will the work bring them greater satisfaction, they will work on doing more and better next time*_
No one likes to work for nothing. Always remind them that their labor is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58, _*”…my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.”*_
Many workers are uninspired by their work because they don’t see how it benefits them in the long run. Show them how they will benefit from this work in this world and in the one to come. Help them see the impact of their work.
When people are not appreciated, they depreciate their contributional value. If you want them to do better, let them know they’ve done great when they do. TO DO GREAT THINGS BUILD GREAT TEAM part 10
Great leaders believe in their people and help them experience their significance.
Always keep a close check on their workload to see that they are not carrying more than they can handle and help them priorities their work.
1. _*Is everyone on your team excited and motivated about the work?*_
2. *_Who lacks motivation and why do you think they are demotivated?_*
3. _*What are you going to do to motivate them to action?*_
4. *_What steps are you going to take to see to it that no one in your team loses motivation?_*
_All those under you are under your watch – you are responsible for watching over their souls. See to it that they don’t lose motivation. Keep them motivated and encouraged. If you do this, you are a great leader._
