#15 The Law Of The Edge

The Difference Between Two Equally Talented Teams Is Leadership”

What is the key to success?  Is it talent? Hard Work? Technology? Efficiency? To be successful our team needs all of these, but what it needs most of all is Leadership.

Personnel – determines the potential of the team.

Vision – determines the direction of the team

Work Ethic – determines the preparation of the team

Leadership – determines the success of the team.

Everything rises and falls on leadership.  If our team has great leadership, then it can gain everything else it needs to go to the highest level.

Leaders transfer ownership for work to those who execute the work.

Leaders create an environment where each team member wants to be responsible.

Leaders coach the development of personal capabilities.

Leaders learn quickly and encourage others to learn rapidly.

Everyone is important but not everyone is equal.


#16.
The Law Of High Morale
“When You’re Winning Nothing Hurts”

The four stages of Morale:

1.Poor Morale – When the leader must do everything.  The team is dead in the water and negative.

2.Low Morale – The leader must do productive things.  The team is making some progress, but it is cohesive and confident.

3.Moderate Morale – The leader must do difficult things.  The team is experiencing some wins and beginning to believe in itself, but some hard decisions need to be made to take it to the next level.

4.High Morale – The leader must do few things.  The team is performing close to its potential, it’s winning, and it just needs to be kept on track.

When you do well, you feel good – when you feel good, you do well.

When you’re winning nothing hurts.

5.Give credit for success of the team – this lifts the morale of the team.
