As leaders, we expect our teams to buy into the vision and goals we have set for our business. We want them to not only commit to their roles, but also commit to improving themselves and the company, as well. But what about us? Do we demand the same from ourselves?? ABSOLUTELY!!!
Teams expect their leaders to be fully committed to the vision, goals, and morals of their business. They want someone who can model the culture and expectations, as well as commit to constant personal and professional growth and development. The most effective leaders MUST understand this. That is why when teams begin to fail, it is important to look to their leaders and ask, “Are they all-in?”
Being all-in takes commitment; its the promise you make to yourself, your team and your business that you will put everything you have into succeeding. When you are all-in, your team can count on you to lead by example, nurture relationships and commit to personal and professional growth.
Lead by Example
It is important to model the habits, attitudes and behavior you expect from your team. If you expect them to be positive and work hard; exude positivity and hard work yourself! If you want them to prioritize their schedules and work smarter, show them how. When they see you working hard, generating leads, setting and achieving goals and giving it your all, they will notice and be inspired to develop those habits as well.
Strong teams and businesses are built on strong relationships. Build relationships by spending time with your team and clients. Not only will you get to know them better and make them feel valuable, you’ll also discover new ways to help them succeed. Plan meals, bring them their favorite beverage or snack, or write them a note and let them know how much you appreciate them. Meeting with your team members individually also gives you the opportunity to offer encouragement and guidance. You make your team feel special and you are also modeling the Work by Referral System. When you show them how it is done, they understand how to incorporate client lunches, pop-by’s and personal notes into their routine with their clients.
Commit to Growth
Growth is vital to success. If you stop growing, your business will become stagnate. Show your team that you are all-in by attending classes and seminars to help improve your own skills and reach your personal goals. Encourage them to do the same and invite them to the seminars that you attend. Personal and professional growth will not only keep you motivated to achieve your goals, it will motivate your entire team as well.
Being all-in is not only essential to your business, but it is vital to building a successful team. Be the model you want your team to follow. Create the habits and have the attitude you expect from your team. Let your team see that you’re not only committed to your values and expectations, but live by them as well.
