Topic: TO DO GREAT THINGS, BUILD GREAT TEAMS Part 7
“…Do your best in the job you received from the Master. Do your very best.” Colossians 4:17
Directing attention where it needs to go is a primal task of leadership. Unless everyone on the team focus on their work, your team can’t do its very best. The job of the leader is to help every person on his team achieve laser-like focus on their roles, goals and personal development. TO DO GREAT THINGS BUILD GREAT TEAMS part 7
People who focus on other people’s work hardly succeed in their own work . They either develop envy become jealous and bitter or they stop improving all together. It’s okay to be inspired by other people’s work, but it isn’t right to make their work your focus – focus on your assignment.
focus involves the ability to pay attention to things that will help you achieve your goals and avoid distractions that will make you ineffective in your assignment TO DO GREAT THINGS BUILD GREAT TEAMS part 7
We need to understand that not all activity results in productivity. To succeed best, leaders must severely limit their focus to the most effective actions and repeatedly—even obsessively—clarify their expectations around those actions. TO DO GREAT THINGS BUILD GREAT TEAMS part 7
The things that matter most must never be at the mercy of the things that matter least.
Clarify, and clarify, and clarify, what you expect from those you lead – what you want the individual team members to achieve, how they should do it, and when it should be done.
Leaders focus on results, on what must be achieved by themselves, by others, and by the team.
Focus is the gateway to all success. And clarity is the mother of it.
You can’t focus if you’re not clear. And lack of focus is a main cause for lack of enthusiasm.
Clarity is the beginning key to momentum. One cannot speed up if he isn’t clear of which direction to take.
You wont get what you expect, you will only get what you EMPHASIZED and INSPECTED.
When you emphasis something you magnify it. What you emphasis is what they will focus on.
Never expect from where you didn’t inspect. If it will be done, you must be on them. TO DO GREAT THINGS BUILD GREAT TEAMS part 7
People put in their very best when they have clarity on what is expected of them, have the right training for it, and they know what to focus on.
Clear, focused leadership reduces work overload and confusion and makes work easier, more engaging, and pleasurable.
Never give anyone more work than they can handle, you are going to kill their moral and destroy their self esteem. Take them one step at a time. Give realistic goals. You can’t tell someone to win 30 souls in a week you has failed to win 2 souls in 2 years.
Give people goals according to their ability and help them stay focused on what they are expected to do. The more they win the more they can win. Nothing encourages success more than success itself.. And simplicity promotes consistency.
