The statistics are staggering. One study I read recently by the folks at Hogan, indicated that 65% managers will fail. Said another way, these leaders who are leading corporate America will fail. Hogan indicates that you must have a strong ability to build a team, to be a strong leader. In my past experience, the key to successful team building includes the following:
* Clear vision of what the team wants to accomplish, so people can plug in.
* Strong set of goals for the team to accomplish
* Team norms, which allow folks to feel safe and secure. Norms like fierce conversations, vulenerability, trust and dependence.
* Team denotes everyone is a contributor, everyone on the team needs to know how they contribute.
These are significant steps toward building strong leadership in your organization.
