When working with groups on team working, one of the questions I ask is
” What are the success ingredients of great teams?”
Almost without exception, one of the first things on the list is having a clear goal.
When you have a clear goal that you can articulate and is understood by everyone in the team, the team has focus. They know what they are trying to achieve and the goal mobilises them towards achievement.
If you lead a team, how clear are your goals?
If they are unclear or are not compelling enough, what could you do to address this?
Bottom Line – If you want a team to deliver, make sure the result is crystal clear.
