I’m going to make a bold statement, and I am sure you will agree with me. The reason we have had so much success with our teamwork program is because we have opened some eyes. I had an epiphany recently regarding leadership: how can you offer leadership training and never teach teamwork? How have most business leaders missed it? The very word leader implies you are in charge of a group of people focused on a common goal. Here is my bold statement: all leadership trainings that don’t include a teamwork strategy or technique are incomplete, shallow, and lack substance. If you’re going to be a leader in today’s marketplace, your whole challenge is leading a team effectively. Your respect doesn’t come from your Armani suit and your success doesn’t come from your haircut, slicked back hair, or St. John outfit. If you want to be respected and admired, you had better become an expert on teamwork because that is what your career hinges on. It is more challenging to lead a business today than it was five years ago. Don’t lose your lunch because you don’t know what you don’t know.
Your greatest leadership skill will require you to do two things: recruit, develop, and retain top talent. Once your team is stacked with talent, your second job is to work as a unit to grow the business together.
Success is a team sport, so your team is more important than anything you have—including you. It takes teamwork to make innovation a reality. It takes teamwork to deliver excellence to your clients consistently. It takes teamwork to solve problems, build capacity, and launch new products. Everything you want to accomplish in business and in life will require you to become an expert on teams. You can learn how to build an amazing culture by instilling pride and loyalty into your team. We all want to reach our potential according to Maslow’s hierarchy, but self-actualization requires the right environment, the right fit, and the right team. Your self-actualization will require you to become an expert on teamwork. Success is a team sport, and you are the coach. Let’s get to work. In our leadership training and programs, we don’t just teach leaders about teamwork—that is where we start because we believe any leadership training that doesn’t cover teamwork is incomplete.
