“Setting the Pace for Your Team”
Pace setting is the most commonly over-looked leadership tool. Within any group, there are a variety of leadership styles. Some team members want to move fast, while others feel comfortable staying behind making sure no assignment is missed and every mistake corrected. Exceptional team leaders understand the cadence of their team, recognize trends resulting in low engagement, and anticipate pace adjustments needed to find success as a team.
“Four Factors of Team Success”
No one succeeds alone. There are four common threads that contribute to team success- effort, unity, skill, and execution. There is a belief that teams have a limit to the accomplishments that can be achieved. These are teams that haven’t learned to tap into their team’s unlimited resources-motivation, selfless, focused enhancement, and expectation. When combined with effort, unity, skill, and execution; a team’s potential grows limitless.
“Managing the Engagement Cycle”
Engagement is a cycle that every person experiences from the highest level (actively engaged) to the lowest (actively disengaged). The key to organizational success is to accurately and effectively identify the level of engagement of their team members. We have found the most productive and successful organizations are the ones that discover trends that predict change in team member engagement. When members discover how important they are to the success of the team, individual and team engagement levels increase. Organizations need to start investing in their employees by embracing their personal strengths.
Josh has been building and managing successful relationships or the past 20 years. Through these experiences he has developed an understanding of “Setting Expectations” and the importance this has on managing successful relationships. The presentation will cover how to identify personal expectations. This is an essential starting point in every relationship because it provides a clear standard of what is expected from each member. Josh will teach proven methods on how to handle disappointment from unmet expectations and learn to reset the original standard and expectation.
