All kidding aside, we know that teams harness incredible power when they operate in harmony.  One of your primary roles as a leader is to nurture the environment, ensuring that the team matures in the use of that power.  To that end, be swift and decisive in dealing with matters that would undermine the team.

Two tips in that regard:
1) Regularly create space for dialogue, collaboration, and alignment.
2) Do not allow room for negative or disconnected overtones of “we” and “they” inside of the organization, all sub-teams must be a part of the big team.

Find out what you like doing best and get someone to pay you for doing it. —Katherine Whitehorn

When managers are pressed to determine who are our best performers, we often ask ourselves this question.  “If I could only take four people in a boat with me, who would I take?”  We often choose those that consistently exceed our expectations, demonstrating that they understand what is important and that they care enough to deliver it.

Choose whether you want to be average or exceed!
