Learn and improve systems for leading teams

Relationship BECOMES Process
Process CREATES Trust
Trust FORMS Community
Community BUILDS Relationships

The Transformational Leader works with people. Working with people means establishing systems that people can understand and follow. The sequence above is true about teams. You recruit persons for your team because you know and trust them. However, factors in a personal relationship do not necessarily transfer to a good team relationship. You tend to overlook the faults and inconsistencies of friends. In a team, that is not always possible. Each team member must depend on other members to perform effectively. If the leader overlooks the faults of a friend, then the relationship with other team members is damaged.

Therefore, you recruit a person because of a relationship, but process replaces that relationship and creates trust, community and a different relationship for the team members as a whole.

Transformational Leaders understand change. Change is necessary for transformation. The leader, however, must be willing to change first--before expecting others to change. The transformation begins with the leader--and then moves to the team.

The templates and worksheets that follow are intended to give the leader some structure for discipline.

In order to be creative, there must be a foundation of planning, structure and commitment to excellence. A creative person that creates alone can be as flexible as they wish. However, to lead a team, creativity works when the vision is unified and there is synergy within the team. Team leaders have to look ahead and be organized.

Look at your skill set first, then help others do the same. They will respect your discipline and preparation.
