This past Monday we discussed the millions of dollars recently invested by top executives of American Airlines into the stocks and future of their company.
The challenge: evaluate your team, then make a written inventory of if you would or would not invest a million on the future of your team.
What did you find? Maybe you found that a million-dollar investment would be well placed. Maybe you found that you would never invest in your team and the very thought gave you anxiety. Either way, it’s vital for you to see the strengths and weaknesses of your team in order to encourage the strengths and improve the weaknesses.
Never make the mistake of thinking that your team doesn’t know how much you’re really invested in them. It is doubtful that your team will ever improve beyond the limit of your expectations.
You hold the vision, the strengths and the flaws of your team, all in your grasp. Bosses see that as a burden of promotion, leaders see that as a trust of responsibility.
Hopefully, you treat it as the latter as you look for ways you can help your team improve.
As always, any push back or questions on this are welcome. If you feel like you’re lacking the tools, I’m happy to discuss how to find and develop those any your individual situations.
Have a great weekend!
