Here’s what I wrote back in 2014 as I kicked off the A-Z series:
“Today marks the start of a new series focusing on the a through z of Team Leadership. This time last year I did a similar series of blog posts over at the BizToolKit blog. You can read what I read my last year's post on A is for Action and Accountability over at the BizToolkit blog leadership here.
In addition to Action and Accountability, some of the words I have included in the Teams365 version for A include:
Attitude - What's the attitude you are demonstrating. What's the attitude each team member is bringing?
Able/Ability - What are you able to do? What abilities does the team bring? Each team member? How do you leverage these?
Aspire - Where do you aspire to move to?
Assumptions - What assumptions are you holding?
Articulation - To articulate is to spell something out. What do you need to articulate to the team?
Accepting - How accepting is the team? What do you bend for? Consider a bottom line? Deal Breaker?
Astute - Astute leaders use their intuition and observe. What are you noticing?
Assessment - What assessments are working for the team? What do you each need to step back and make a self-assessment on?
Agility - Agility, which embodies flexibility, is critical for today's ever changing workplace. Agile is also a term which has been embraced within the IT, and related sectors, as a core component of,, and approaches around, leadership.
What are the questions for you to explore today?”
I won’t be going through each day again this month, but you are encouraged to take a look and in any spare minutes, think about the opportunities for you as a team leader, or aspiring team leader.
