Leadership Tip: Clarify Direction and Priorities With Your Team


Be clear about the overall team direction and priorities.

Today’s Tip:

Bring the team together to discuss and come to a resolution around the following questions:

  • Why does our team exist?
  • How do we want our team to behave?
  • What do we want our team to achieve?
  • How will we know we’ve succeeded?
  • What is most important—right now?
  • Who must do what?

Food for Thought:

When teams are aligned around common goals and objectives, there is both buy-in and clarity on the core operating principles that drive team actions.
