Teamwork Matters

Teamwork Matters

Organizations accomplish what they do because of teamwork. Whether you are in business, sport, education, the church and even marriage – teamwork is what paves the way to success. What a leader can do with a great team far surpasses anything they can accomplish alone. As a leader learns how to unite the right people around a shared vision, their influence truly begins to take off.

According to Dr. John C. Maxwell in his book, The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork, the 1st Law of Teamwork is The Law of Significance:
One is too small a number to achieve greatness. Leaders who fail to promote teamwork undermine their own potential and erode the best efforts of the people with whom they work. To accomplish anything significant, leaders must learn to link up with others.
Recently I began working with a very successful businessman. In our first session he proudly informed me that he was a “self-made man”. He was rather taken aback when I appeared unimpressed. After all, this man is successful and rich. I responded, “That’s too bad. Imagine just how much you could have achieved with a great team.”

The reality of course, is that no-one is truly self-made. We may not have been gifted our businesses by our parents but they have played a part in making you. Your education may have been cut short or even, not especially good, but your teachers did impart something. For a few of my clients what they perceive as being negative in their lives is actually the turning point for their success.

A leader’s job is to develop the team so that the team is effective.
But what is an effective team?
There are probably as many definitions of an […]

Why use simulations? Because lectures and case studies don’t cut it!

In spite of the extensive evidence, it seems that traditional lectures, use of static case studies and ‘knowledge transfer’ continue to be the main methodologies used by teachers and trainers.

It is time to change. Gen iY is here and if we continue with last century methods, we have little chance of being their guides of choice:

Modes of Alignment #2 – Pull Mode

Please take caution with this post – it might change your life.

Pull Mode, unlike push mode, is about leadership and paying attention to growth and improvement.

Rather than focusing attention on problems to be solved or fixed or overcome, in Pull Mode we take time to clearly envision our future and allow the goal to pull us towards it. The results of Push Mode and Pull Mode may appear to be the same (that is the achievement of the goal) but Pull Mode takes less effort and allows our unconscious activity to take precedence over conscious linear processing.

The idea of Pull Mode is that you create a vision of the future that is so compelling for you (and perhaps for others) that you cannot help but be drawn towards it. The things that you need to do on the way become minor irritants that simply get done and anything that really is not important is not done and fades into insignificance.
“Hold on, what if something that is important is not recognised as being important?”
Excellent question. Things that appear to need to be done, whether important or not, on your journey are your friends – they are obstacles to your progress but think of them in terms of friends, or learning opportunities.

Let me take a personal example if I may. Two things about running a business that I personally do not enjoy:

    Filing,
    Doing the accounts.

I appreciate that some people just adore filing and doing the accounts but I don’t. In Push Mode, I resist doing them until I absolutely have to or, usually, risk a penalty. It is the penalty that drives me to do it. I still hate doing it but I dislike paying […]

Modes of Alignment #1 – Push Mode

There’s a wealth of evidence that having goals and setting them is an important process. And that goals are best considered as performance goals rather than outcome goals – principally because a performance goal is something that the individual can be in charge, whereas an outcome is often dependent on other people and/or other things happening as well.

The difficulty with goal setting is not the process of setting or creating goals, it is ACTING on achieving those goals. The alignment mode you are in can make a substantial difference to your success or otherwise of achieving your goals. There are three major modes of alignment found in Mark Forster’s excellent book entitled “How to make your dreams come true”. These are “Push mode” , “Pull mode” and “Drift mode”- combined together as they often can be, creates a fourth type, one I call the “Pushmepullyou mode”.
Push mode

If you have to drive others towards an objective, even drive yourself towards it, I call this being in push mode.

The fun, creative or enjoyable things rarely make it onto a ‘todo’ list – rather there is a tendency to say that once the list is done and I have time, then I’ll do the fun stuff.

What’s more, you will already know that the things we pay attention to are the things that grow and the things we don’t pay attention to tend to fade away. So if we focus on problems (call them challenges or issues if you must but they are still the same thing), we will find that the problems grow. So here’s a radical thought, if we focus our attention on interesting, exciting, fun things, they will grow. And our problems, won’t they fade […]
