Top tips to consider and reflect upon:


Don't underestimate the power of your team

You can’t be a leader without other people. You can't achieve your goals or your business goals without your team. No one is bigger than the team and everyone will be equally valuable and valued. It’s a really special thing to be part of, and protecting the team and what it stands for becomes a priority for everyone. 


It's about team formation

Is your team thriving or just surviving? Remember the importance of team formation and motivate people at every stage of the team formation to be their best version in order to prevent them from slipping into the comfort zone where instead of a high performing team, you end up with a lot of confusion over roles and responsibilities. 


Don’t be afraid to admit that you need support 

It is vital to admit if you need help to ensure an excellent outcome at this stage. Bringing an expert when you embark on this kind of development programme will allow you to go on the journey with your team, as one of them, a team member and focus on your feelings about the journey ahead. It will make it so much easier.


Get to know your team well

Constantly ask yourself if your team is really a team. It is important to bear in mind that your team is not just a group of people who work together. You and your team will have to work dynamically and interdependently to achieve the goals. This reflection will allow you to see how the team are performing and what needs to change and why.


Be aware of how you really motivate people to work together

Are you a role model for your team at all times? Are you setting the right tone to create a culture of collaboration? Remember the importance of your role and be an inspirational leader for your team; in doing so, you will motivate them to provide you with the best input.
