You’ve put together a great team of executives for your mid-size company. So why are you disappointed? The credentials are there, the experience is there, the brains are there. Yet, the team is sputtering, the energy and drive doesn’t seem to be there. Sure, work gets done. But, the team elan, the team pride that takes it to a whole other level is absent.
Motivate the team
Leadership of a mid-size company requires more than building a team of the best and the brightest. Leadership requires motivating the team, putting that fire in their belly to go beyond all expectations.
Teamwork and motivation go hand in hand. But how do you get them to clasp hands and become one? And, how do you sustain it day after day? The reality is you have a great motivational tool in place. In fact, most likely you put it in place even before you opened your doors.
Corporate values = motivation
That motivation tool to build your team into a superlative team is your corporate values. Sure, new employees are educated about your values from day one through your employee handbook. But honestly, who remembers?
In his blog, CEO to CEO, Robert Sher, former CEO of Bentley, founder of CEO to CEO, author and columnist, shares how your values are an exceptional motivational tool that will help get optimum performance out of your team. https://www.ceotoceo.biz/insights/ceo-think-blog/transforming-your-company-values-into-a-powerful-motivating-force-2/
