Why Team Culture Creates Success

AUDIO: 5 Pivotal Breakthroughs That Will Define the Success of Your Team

by Greg Yates | Breakthrough Leadership

There’s nothing worse, as a leader, than realizing someone was telling you what you wanted to hear instead of what they were really passionate about. What if you secretly knew the pivot points that would turn your scattered team into Spartans?

Fierce, effective fighting forces aren’t built overnight, but they are built on a very consistent culture. And, they contain these five pivot points that make all the difference.

They Belong

They know where they belong and they are secure in it. They exist in relationships of trust that are never questioned. They are family and they are culturally one with their people.

They Know Their Purpose

Everything in their lives resonates from a shared purpose with their people. Satisfaction, peace, joy, passion all come from purpose that is clear and without question. And, they are secure in it.

They Have Clarity

They know where they fit, how things function and why they care passionately about it. Their entire team is functioning with shared clarity as parts of the body and each work to support the other for a singular, common definition of success.

They Never Feel Alone

They are part of a team. They battle together for the greatest purpose of their lives and they share the energy, the security, the strength of the team. They depend on each other and can be depended on themselves to the death.

They are Fearless

One by one they learn to face the common fears all people face. They face them together with clarity and purpose as a team. They are able to face them because they trust their companions and have built relationships that put an end to many of the fears such as rejection and failure. Their nature wasn’t fearless but their leader and their unified team made it possible to fulfill their highest created purpose, free from fear and destined for Breakthrough.

You can lead a team that resonates with momentum and passion if you will pivot in these five areas. You have to lead, you can’t just point.

You must choose pivotal breakthroughs that lead to results, rather than flimsy results hinged on fearful, isolated, vulnerable and distracted teams who aren’t on the same page.

You can dramatically tip the scales in your favor and become the leader you were created to be. It’s time to choose Breakthrough Leadership.
