How do you build a winning team?
Have you noticed how great leaders always praise the people who helped them succeed? How did these leaders build a winning team, and what makes a team great?
A winning team needs four kinds of people:
A promoter has plenty of drive. Their strength lies in growing others’ ideas and contributing to their team. They are passionate and energetic.
The supporter is the backbone of the team. They are givers who seek to help their team members. They thrive on recognition and value respect.
The controller is the “doer” of the team. Controllers are decisive, confident, and focused. They get the job done.
Analytics are the problem-solvers. They are goal-oriented, detailed, and logical. Their disciplined and systematic approach ensures great results.
Does your team meet all of these categories? If not, you might need to think about rounding out your team’s skill sets. Why is this important? Say you have a team full of ideas-people but no implementers, how would anything get done? An imbalanced team can’t win.
Once you’ve built a winning team, the next step is to lead them according to their strengths. Are you the kind of leader people want to follow? Find out by taking our FREE online leadership assessment.
