Building Your Team

March 13, 2009 | By | Add a Comment

When you manage teams of people, they are a huge resource for you.

Today – right now – make a mental note of the special talents of each and every member of your direct reports.

How can you leverage the best talent from each of your people – what can they contribute to the growth and development of your business more than they do today – by utilizing those special talents in different places in your business?

Hold the press – there IS an ‘I’ in Team.

Share a secret? I was once horrified to hear David Brent in The Office facetiously say ‘There is an ‘I’ in team‘, because I’ve been saying it for ages – and in direct opposition to that notice you sometimes see pinned up which says ‘There is no ‘I’ in team’.

Wrong, wrong, wrong!

But it is because I believe that every individual brings a unique gift to a team and it needs making the most of. Maybe David Brent got it right that time!

..and remember…

Have a great week noticing the stars in your team and how they shine…with their individuality and how it brings value to your team!
