TEAM: Get the right team

Every successful business has a team, a team is crucial to help you fast track your business success.

There is no ‘I’ in Team, but there is an ‘e’ and an ‘m’, which means there is a ‘me’ in team! What’s the point of this mini anagram? To build a successful team, whether it’s in the workplace or in the sporting arena, we first need to focus on each individual and their capacity to fulfil their role within the team.

The individual contributions of each player of a team sport culminate to produce a positive team performance. If one person is carrying an injury or hasn’t prepared themselves at training, they won’t do their job effectively, which results in another unable to do theirs. If any athlete turns up to their game or event knowing in their mind that they didn’t do every sprint, lap, push up or drill at training, then they are prepared to lose.

So adapting this analogy into a workplace, as business owner-manager, we need to make sure that our people are looking after themselves and enjoying what they are doing. Being physically active and healthy will make an enormous difference. Those that are mature, positive and motivated know that physical activity makes you feel more energetic and more focussed. The attitude you choose when life bowls a bouncer at you is more positive and you’re more productive in everything you do. Imagine your workplace with a whole team of healthy people, how up-vibe and electric the atmosphere would be, and how many creative and innovative ideas would emerge! How much fun you could have doing the everyday routines that with the wrong attitude can be perceived as monotonous and boring? These workplaces do exist, and at Zoom in Business we help you create them.

Understanding that your people are your businesses greatest asset is no longer enough - you actually have to act on this. Have a read of the book ‘Fish!’ or pick up one of Wayne Bennett or Richard Branson’s autobiographies and you’ll see exactly what we mean.

Need help to refresh yourself or your team? Join our next 90 Day Business Challenge in July, and in 12 weeks you will be reviewing/creating Position Descriptions and a Professional Development Training Plan. Don’t wait for burnout or your key employee to leave until you get help. We are right here with ideas, experience, market research or anything else which helps you get the right team to help you fast-track your business success.
