Building teams who can run through walls

I believe, and it’s backed up by research from excellent resources, that team leaders who model these seven characteristics, as a starting point, can produce teams who will run through walls for them.

1. Honour and validate every one. No favorites.

2. No-one should be surprised about where they stand with you.

3. Share the lessons your life has taught you. Don’t hold back.

4. Listen up. A prerequisite to caring is listening.

5. Show genuine, compassionate care for every one.

6. Lift everyone up verbally and sometimes physically, and celebrate them when they do good deeds.

7. Be grateful, expressing gratitude for what’s in your own life first. Love of others flows from love of self.

I'm a life long learner. I've been on a voyage of discovery since childhood so ask why a lot. I'm Irish and a bit American. I write because its freeing and healing. I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!
