A Successful Leadership Team | Joe Shew

A leadership team is responsible for guiding a company through the ups and downs of the business world. The right team will make all the difference in whether or not your organization succeeds. Creating the right leadership team, however, is far easier said than done. You’ll be working with some of your company’s most accomplished workers, all of whom must balance their role on the team with their other duties. The following tips will help you bring your team together as they accomplish their goals. Choose Your Team Wisely Most of the time, the members of the leadership team are selected for their leadership skills or individual achievements. Although these are good ways of measuring someone’s performance, they aren’t indicative of how they will work on a team. Someone may feel that they are too successful to have to listen to the differing opinions of other team members — select people who have demonstrated that they are constructive team players instead. The Right Purpose For a leadership team to work together effectively, they need to have a reason. Many times, there isn’t any apparent reason. Members may feel that they’re only responsible for their direct roles. Their first focus is their main area of responsibility, and they may lose sight of why they need to work together. Your team should be committed to pursuing a higher purpose together. A Set of Goals The best way to make the organization’s true purpose feel more concrete is to establish a set of shared goals for the team. They should inspire everyone and require involvement from each individual. Each person needs to feel responsible for its achievement.
