Every member of high-performing teams works for the good of all. All works for the good of everyone.
This happens to every team with a shared and meaningful purpose.
Team members embrace, live your purpose every day. Everyone agrees that your purpose is the very reason why your team exists.
Shared and Meaningful Purpose Inspire Commitment
That’s because when you know precisely where you are going — and when you know that your destination is better than where you are today — you become bold, and brave.
You know that will be going to the future with the help of your team mates. That you won’t be alone.
Shared team purpose allows everyone in the team to compete against the standards — not against each other.
A compelling purpose unites everyone.
Team members know that they differ only in function, but they are all working to achieve the same goal.
Human beings are meaning-making creatures. In high-performing teams, members do not just work for the sake of work. They work to make a difference. Give them reasons to move and they’ll move the word with you.
Team Leaders Must Develop Shared and Meaningful Purpose
Team leaders must learn how to use tools that will help team members come into agreement. Work on your team charter. You can use team canvas to plan, set goals, and execute your goals.
Grow your team like a gardener. Develop a deeper understanding of how your team works at its best — and nurture the best assets of your team.
Big goals make your purpose visible. Every member of the team measure their performance based on your goals — on a daily basis.
Your goals serve as your score card — and you score card tells you that you are making a difference.
