Who is on your Team Board?

ID-10047878“You will truly not know who is on your Team Board unless the going gets TOUGH.”

We are involved in many activities, projects, jobs and many situations of life and we work with a team. In many times we are confused or we are unable to understand who is really with us as a team. We face many problems in making a group to achieve what is targeted.

We end up facing situations in a feel and doubt of who is really with you to complete the task. There is a key to understand the team, as and how the going gets tough the members start moving away from you. Members start either discouraging you or start giving small reasons for not doing the required task. As the days passes some people may really move away from you. The people left with you are the real team members who are willing to take the pains work hard with you to complete the task.

Quotes on TEAM

“Individual commitment to a group effort—that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” – Vince Lombardi

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress, Working together is Success” – Henry Ford

“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean”

“Teamwork is the ability to work together towards a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results”

“If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself”.

“when a team outgrows individual performance and learns team confidence, excellence becomes a reality”.

What is Aggressiveness…?

“A silent ocean cannot cut the rocks; you can see that only the fast sea can cut the rocks”.

True saying…  You cannot just be cool and sit idle thinking of the bright future for yourself. One has to be aggressive to achieve his dreams.  Whatever may be the hardships you will have to face the reality and move forward to hit the goal. ‘

There might be uncontrollable situations, might be frightening days, might have met with many setbacks, but we can’t stop planning further.  We need to be more aggressive towards our aim, towards achieving it by all the means. We need to be ready to take every step required to fulfill and achieve it.

You can look at many of the sports men, they are very much aggressive. You get lot of inspirations just by looking at them. That is language of aggression. If you are with the right thinking and the right aggressiveness you will win the game. It’s the major spirit which will make you win.

Every failure is like the rock which is cut by the aggressive sea. Once you accomplish the success all your pains are forgotten. You will be the happiest person, you enjoy your success.

Quotes:

As a child, the family that I had and the love I had from my two parents allowed me to go ahead and be more aggressive, to search and to take risks knowing that, if I failed, I could always come home to a family of love and support”.-Tiger Woods

Most of the people I know in show business don’t need anybody pushing them at all. They’re extremely aggressive”.-Helen Reddy

I think my career would probably be in a better place had I been more aggressive. But I don’t have it in me. I’m not a competitive person, and I’m also really private”.-Debi Mazar

Chanakya Neeti – A man attains greatness by his merits.

Chanakya Says “A man attains greatness by his merits, not simply by occupying an exalted seat. Can we call a crow an eagle (garuda) simply because he sits on the top of a tall building”.

You can achieve success only by your knowledge and your hard work; you cannot feel the success just because you got the position to be on the top. By some chance if you have reached a top position, it is really difficult task to maintain the position without having knowledge and the experience to move forward or succeed in the required direction.

When you are not able to take the right decisions at the required positions you start feeling the difficulties of the position at the same time others will start noticing that you are not the right person to be at that position or authority level. People start ignoring you for your doings and the suggestions given by you.

If you have the required experience and then you occupy the position, you will work and take decisions in confidence, and all your actions are recognized and respected by others. You start creating goodwill and a real respect for yourself and your position. Everybody will be proud to have you as a leader at that level.

The best way is to acquire the required knowledge base and then climb on to the position.

 

 

Leadership is nothing but the action;

Leadership is nothing but the action; there is a big difference between talking about doing something and actually doing. Many people push off the responsibility on to others because of which they cannot grow further.  Dreaming of big things and creating big things are really of a different status.

In the corporate world people are grown to next level only by taking right decisions and actions. In society leaders are grown by taking actions to change the people’s lives.

Leaders

1)      Study the problem

2)      Find out the solution

3)      Prepare plan to solve the problem

4)      Make a team to solve the problem

5)      Take action

So take actions your world to make a difference in other people’s lives and the difference in the corporate world.
