Some organizations are thriving, while others are not, and some are just coasting along. So what makes an organization thrive? What makes a winner keep winning? What helps a leader keep excelling?
There could be multiple answers to these questions, such as my personal favorite: Clarity, Focus, and Execution. The answer could also be a person or organization’s vibe (positive energy). This is one of my newer concepts that I also whole-heartedly believe in. Working as a high-performing team is another giant winning formula. Rich relationships, personally and professionally, is an excellent answer as well. Then there is good old fashion hard work.
Below, I will break down each of these answers because I believe, with a combination of all five, you and your business can really start to thrive:
Clarity, Focus, and Execution
Clarity, Focus, and Execution is the TJI core methodology that rings true more than ever today.
Both leaders and team members need real clarity in order for there to be pulling power toward the company’s vision, objectives, and priorities.
Focus is the opposite of distraction. Our studies show people spend on average 20 plus hours a week on Low Leverage Activities. Often, this is because they’ve never been coached to write out their High Leverage Activities in order to stay extremely focused.
Execution produces results. No action equals no results. Measured and accountable action means better and better results.
This is our pretty simple formula that we teach our clients, and we see them get amazing results time and time again. How is your Clarity, Focus, and Execution?
We are about to release our newest book called Vibe (pre-order on Amazon today) that is all about providing energy. Boring, non-inspiring people and cultures don’t work well today. People want to be in environments that trigger them to think, perform, and be their best. How is your vibe? How is your team’s vibe?
High Performing Team (HPT)
When I was coaching the president of Ford years ago, Ford commissioned our company to help improve the team dynamic amongst 200 of their top people. We developed a formula that we pour into organizations almost weekly called ACT (accountability, communication, and trust). We believe these are the three keys to cultivating a HPT. Do your people work as a group, team, or high-performing team?
Rich relationships matter. Are you investing (enough) in others, your team, heck, even yourself? If not, you should. Relationships supercharge thriving. The richer the relationship, the better. Cultivate relationships by holding team huddles and offsite events. Keep your web meetings energized and well-facilitated, compliment and appreciate your team, and thank the people around you. These all lead to richer relationships.
Lastly, we have hard work. Follow-through is at the core of hard work. You can’t just talk about what you want to do, you have to do it. Today’s world responds to people who get it done. Are you one of those people?
I hope these 5 answers serve you and your team well as you work toward thriving.
