Need Momentum For Your Team? Here Is How

The Coates Perspective for February 27, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
 
Leading Your Team In Building Momentum

One of the winning qualities of an organization is momentum. With it, energy within the team is created and everyone is inspired to accomplish greater things. Without it, morale is low and enthusiasm for the mission wanes. Momentum usually begins with the leader.

In order for an organization to grow, the leader has to lead and cast vision to his or her team. Writer Elanor Doan stated, “You cannot kindle a fire in any other heart until it is burning within your own.” When a team begins to sense that momentum is in the air, it fills the sails of everyone in the organization to perform even better, to shoot for even greater goals. It was Michael Korda who observed, One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals.” Momentum begets more momentum. A good leader gets it going. A good team keeps it going.

Here is the take-a-way for the leader who desires to create positive momentum. How is it done? What does a leader have to do in order to create a momentum that lasts? Here are a few suggestions:

1.     Create a work culture where success is celebrated. When people feel valued, they produce great work.

2.     Model passion before those around you. Some things are caught before they can be taught.

3.     Build the kind of talented team who can build upon the momentum you create. No one can keep it going alone.
