For Team Leaders
Whatever you do, start with God.
Jesus said, whoever applies His Word in daily living is like a man who builds on solid rock, whose house will stand in the midst of life’s storms (Matthew 7:24-25).
As a leader, you can build strong, you can withstand challenges, and you can be successful!
You can focus on the individual and group strengths in your team, and dramatically increase the positive impact of your organization.
Gallup research has found that those who use their personal strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged on the job.
Teams that focus on their strengths are 12.5% more productive. Using personal strengths daily at work, increases confidence, engagement, productivity, health, and job satisfaction.
How well do you know your own personal strengths, and the outstanding strengths of your team players?
How effectively are you adapting your leadership style and communication to match the needs of each of your team members?
This may sound daunting, but with simple tools, you can quickly identify your leadership style and strengths, and the best way to engage and encourage each team member.
3 K’s to true and lasting success as a leader:
Know your God, Know yourself, Know your people.
