  16. 17. TEAM PLAYER
  17. 18. What does it take to be a valued member of a team? Develop and display competence. Follow through on commitments. Deliver required results. Ensure your actions are consistent with your word. Stand behind the team and its people. Be enjoyable to work with. Be passionate about your work and those you serve. Communicate and keep everyone informed. Help the other members of the team. Help members of other teams. Share ideas, information and credit. Hold yourself 100% accountable. Team Leaders are: Rigorous… but not ruthless
  18. 19. Why you need to be an expert at collaboration and teamwork: <ul><li>You cannot succeed alone. </li></ul><ul><li>You need a team of the brightest people you can possibly find to help you. </li></ul><ul><li>You need to help the team work extremely well together. </li></ul><ul><li>You need the team to support you with enthusiasm, respect and trust. </li></ul><ul><li>But don’t take my word for it… </li></ul>

Anne Mulcahy CEO of Xerox and the third most powerful woman in the world! <ul><li>Build a network of great relationships with people who want to see you succeed. </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t have all of the answers, so ask for help and advice from the smartest people you can find. </li></ul><ul><li>Learn to be a learner. </li></ul><ul><li>Listen intently to your employees and to your customers. </li></ul>
  20. 21. Typical ways that team members violate the team leader’s expectations: <ul><li>Missing or being late to team meetings. </li></ul><ul><li>Not outwardly demonstrating commitment and support for the leader’s agenda. </li></ul><ul><li>Not completing assignments in a timely manner so the team can complete its work. </li></ul><ul><li>Not letting the leader know when there are problems or issues. </li></ul><ul><li>Not sharing resources with other team members. </li></ul><ul><li>Not sharing credit with the rest of the team. </li></ul><ul><li>Not responding to e-mails or voice mails in a timely manner. </li></ul>
  21. 22. Typical ways that team leaders violate team members’ expectations: <ul><li>Micromanaging – not giving autonomy. </li></ul><ul><li>Making decisions that effect subordinates without their input. </li></ul><ul><li>Letting team members shirk their duties without any negative consequences. </li></ul><ul><li>Not giving praise or rewards for a job well done. </li></ul><ul><li>Not recognizing that the subordinate has a life outside of work that occasionally takes priority over work. </li></ul>
  22. 23. Let’s take a close look at what some of the top thought leaders in the world have to say about teams…
  23. 24. A Vivid Shared Vision <ul><li>A meaningful common purpose that the </li></ul><ul><li>team has helped shape. Most teams are </li></ul><ul><li>responding to an initial mandate from </li></ul><ul><li>outside the team. But to be successful, the </li></ul><ul><li>team must “ own ” this purpose, develop its </li></ul><ul><li>own spin on it, and they must create </li></ul><ul><li>this vision together as a team. </li></ul>
  24. 25. Clear Measurable Goals <ul><li>Specific performance goals that flow from </li></ul><ul><li>the common purpose. For example, getting </li></ul><ul><li>a project completed in less than half </li></ul><ul><li>the normal time. Compelling goals inspire </li></ul><ul><li>and challenge a team, give it a sense of </li></ul><ul><li>urgency. They also have a leveling effect, </li></ul><ul><li>requiring members to focus on the collective </li></ul><ul><li>effort necessary rather than any differences </li></ul><ul><li>in title or status. </li></ul>
  25. 26. Competence + Diversity <ul><li>A mix of complementary skills. Successful teams rarely have all the needed skills at the outset — they develop them as they learn what the challenge requires. </li></ul>Individual greatness…leading to team excellence
  26. 27. Solid Work Ethic <ul><li>A strong commitment to how the work </li></ul><ul><li>gets done . Teams must agree on who will </li></ul><ul><li>do what jobs, how schedules will be </li></ul><ul><li>established and honored, and how decisions will be made and modified. On a genuine </li></ul><ul><li>team, each member does equivalent amounts </li></ul><ul><li>of real work; all members, the leader included. </li></ul>
  27. 28. Team Trust <ul><li>Trust and commitment cannot be coerced. The process of agreeing upon appropriate goals serves as the crucible in which members forge their accountability to each other… not just to the leader or manager. </li></ul>

John Spence Team Model <ul><li>D </li></ul><ul><li>M </li></ul><ul><li>C </li></ul><ul><li>C </li></ul><ul><li>M </li></ul><ul><li>D </li></ul>irection – vivid, clear, inspiring --- shared easurements – specific, observable, focused ompetence – very good at what they do ommunication – open, honest, courageous utual Accountability – all team members iscipline – do this every day
