How strong are your leadership skills? Poor leadership and weak standards create unhealthy teams that produce failing results. Success is your responsibility. You must develop and hone your leadership skills in order to create productive teams that produce superior results. In today’s world of business, teams are not composed of just employees for the majority of small business owners have no employees but compose their enterprises through outsourcing, vendors, sub-contractors and joint venture partners. These venues are what create your teams.
The first goal of leadership is know your direction-where you want to go, want you want to have and what you want to create.
Then you must communicate effectively and clearly to your team your boundaries, expectations, and rewards of all team players.
After that you must commit to adherence to your core principals and plans while maintaining room for flexibility. And then last but certainly not least, you must chose the right team players. Here are the rules: “Be quick to fire and slow to Hire”.
Never be afraid to eliminate the wrong person from your team and never be afraid to give ample opportunity to the right person on your team. Both of these methods will help you earn a million dollar annual income.
