116: How to Close Your Month out Strong and Crush Your Goals
Are you frustrated with team members who don’t take any action on their monthly goals? Or how about team members who don’t even have monthly goals in the first place? How can YOU, as the team leader, set and achieve goals based on relying on other people taking action? Today I’ll be sharing with you leadership a team building strategies to help you close out a month strong with momentum and excitement to help you crush your goals. It’s a very different way to approach the topic of goal setting and working with your teams. You don’t hit big goals in your business by trying to be everything to everyone There are actually two parts to reaching a goal: 1) the setting of the goal, and 2) the action that takes place to meet the set goal. But, how do you work with people who have not ‘owned it” and stated, “This is my goal for the month!”? Effective goal setting and achievement is all about driving production and learning how to really motivate your people to action. And as leaders, we need to learn that owning a business with a ‘voluntary army’ of team members means we have to learn WHO and HOW to influence people on our team. Influence is leadership! And this is where I see a lot of team leaders struggle. Most of your team members probably don’t even know how to set big goals and that these goals are, in fact, achievable. And instead of being a servant leader and working with the team members to help them define and achieve their own goals, we end being a “SELF-SERVING” leader, asking team members to contribute towards a ‘team goal.’ So many of us (myself included at one point), miss out on the concept of Legacy Leadership. Legacy Leaders understand that a personal goal means nothing unless it’s based on the solid foundation of helping other people succeed on their team and achieve their goals. In this episode, I am going to share exactly how to reach your month-end goals through servant leadership, how to effectively set goals, and how to implement an action plan for hitting your goals in your team that puts your team first…but still allows you to crush your month-end goals in the process!
