You’ve probably heard some variation on this saying before. “Winners are not born – they’re made.” This comment is usually followed with a speech about hard work, dedication, and perseverance.
As a manager, you may spend hours choosing your team members and formulating plans for managing performance – but in the end, what will it take to turn your average team into a group of real winners?
Your team is already made up of the right people and we can only assume you are the right leader! There are a few other critical components that will turn your teammates into high-performing winners, though:
• Strong team relationships,
• A good working environment,
• Positive attitudes and behaviours ,
• Excellent moral values,
• A sense of purpose, and
• Measurable results
If you’re missing any of the above components you may have trouble forming a winning team. Not everyone is born a winner, but with proper guidance each person you work with will learn to tap into his or her potential and realize the ultimate level of success.
Managers are leaders, or should we say the gardeners. Use your green thumb, or your talents, to help your employees become as successful as possible!
