4 ways to foster a championship team

first_img 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Joshua W. Poole Joshua W. Poole began his credit union career as a part-time teller, shortly after graduating from high school in 1999.  He has a passion for leadership and change management, and … Web: https://www.brecofcu.com Details Let’s face it…we all love to win.  The thrill of planning, practicing, and executing to achieve greatness can be downright addicting.  It’s a wonderful feeling to witness all of your hard work and dedication come to fruition and personify the difference you were hoping for.  But that championship moment, and what’s even more desired…that championship reign, doesn’t come without difficulty. After all, we’re all imperfect people striving for perfection and it’s sometimes a hard pill to swallow to realize that the perfect boss, the perfect employee, or the perfect team just simply doesn’t exist.  But there are core ideals that every leader should adopt to inspire greatness and plant the desire in each individual to strive for the seemingly unimaginable.  Here are four ideals to help you redefine perfection and create reigning champions.It takes more than one star to light the skyIf you’ve ever peered into the night, you’ve probably noticed that it’s impossible to dispel the darkness with just one star.  Likewise in your teams, you can never hope to become champions if success is not shared by all, rather than just the few or the one.  Basketball legend Michael Jordan once said, “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.” If you have to be the star of your team, you might win a few games, but if you don’t build confidence in others you’ll never witness glory.  Championships are therefore achieved only after consistently celebrating the successes of others and routinely acknowledging their contributions.  Each team member must feel valued and be given opportunities to lead and to be heard. To build trust and comradery, individual talents must be cultivated and developed through a collective team effort.  It takes more than one star to win a championship. Personal space is your friend    We’ve all heard that famous quote, “If you want something done right, you just have to do it yourself.”  But invading your team members’ personal space by micromanaging their every move will quickly destroy trust, creativity, and innovation. Here’s a more effective mantra, “A leader’s job is to set the stage, not perform on it.”  As a leader, you must effectively communicate the vision. But once that vision is set, you should step out of the way and let your team determine how to implement it.  Allow your team the personal space and freedom to accomplish organizational goals in their own manner. Yes, you may have to step in from time to time if they’re straying too far, but they must be trusted to act on their own instincts.  Then when the heat of the game is upon them, you can trust they’ll make an explosive play. Failure is a part of the gameLet’s be honest, no one soars among the clouds at all times.  There will be days you’ll score that illusive touchdown, and others in which you’ll have to settle for the field goal.  And there will yet be other days in which you’ll never cross the 50-yard line. Until you learn to fail with grace, you’ll never learn to win.  One of the greatest mistakes you can make as a leader is to instill the fear of failure into your team.  You must certainly set expectations and hold your team accountable, but they’ll expect true leadership from you when the going gets tough.  And that means you immediately envelop them with support, expressing your unrelenting confidence in their ability to win. When team members feel your faith in them, a positive, trusting environment is created in which they feel comfortable taking risks.  Genuine appreciation yields authentic happiness Never fail to recognize that no amount of success is achieved alone.  A genuine appreciation for the contributions of each individual on your team reflects your personal commitment to individual happiness.  We’re all unique, and the most effective leaders will hone the ability to recognize each individual’s unique skill set and empower them to be their best.  Create an environment in which everyone has the chance to thrive and you’ll be well on your way to emulating genuine appreciation.  Always be flexible to the needs of your team and lead to the individual. Building a championship team may not always be easy, but redefine perfection and your team will reign.    last_img read more

ICC World Cup I don’t play for ACB or Gulbadin Naib, I play for Afghanistan: Rashid Khan

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. highlights Afghanistan has lost all five games in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.Afghanistan will play India in their next game in Southampton.Afghanistan played their first World Cup in 2015.center_img New Delhi: Afghanistan’s campaign in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has been disastrous. From issues related to lack of team unity to reports of the cricket team members allegedly involved in a scuffle in a Manchester hotel before the game against England, Afghanistan has struggled off the field. On the field, the cricket team has suffered three disastrous collapses against New Zealand, Sri Lanka and South Africa. The bowling has been compounded by Rashid Khan, their ace spinner struggling for penetration. Before the tournament even began, there was plenty of controversies when Gulbadin Naib was appointed as the skipper of the team in place of the more experienced Asghar Afghan and this prompted many players to tweet their support for Asghar Afghan.Speaking to PTI before Afghanistan’s game against India at the Rose Bowl in Southampton, Rashid has emphatically stated that his support was firm with Gulbadin and said the media had blown it out of proportion. “I think there is no problem in my relationship with Gulbadin. I support him as much as I did when Asghar was the captain. If I supported Asghar 50 per cent on the field, Gulbadin has my 100 per cent support. Right from the time we landed in England, no one has spoken about the issue. I think it was blown out of proportion by the media. Some of us have been playing together for 15-16 years. So if nothing has happened in more than a decade, then what can suddenly change in a day or two,” Rashid stated.However, Rashid was clear that the change of captaincy and his tweets were only because he cared for Afghanistan cricket and he wanted only good things for the development for Afghanistan cricket.“That tweet by me or Nabi wasn’t in support of Asghar. We raised our voice for the betterment of Afghanistan cricket. Had someone else been appointed captain, my stand wouldn’t have changed. That wasn’t the right time to change the captain. I have nothing personal in supporting Asghar. I am not the only person who’s saying that. The whole world is saying that. Neither do I play for Gulbadin nor for the cricket board. I play for the flag, for Afghanistan. I know what my job is and I will continue doing that,” Rashid said. “We were going to play a big event like the World Cup. The combination didn’t seem like Asia Cup and if you tinker with the combination before a big tournament, it’s not a great thing. That was the reason for the tweet.”When asked as to why Afghanistan could not perform well against the big sides in the World Cup, Rashid said the team had not played against the likes of Australia and England on a frequent basis. “Actually, we haven’t played a lot against teams like Australia and England and that pressure is also there. In a stage like the World cup, suddenly the pressure increases manifold when you play against big sides and that can affect the performance. This is the first time, we played South Africa in an ODI. We played New Zealand and Australia after the 2015 World Cup. If you play a team once in four years, you are bound to face problems. As players, we understood we need to work harder,” Rashid said.last_img read more

Thompson takes sprint double, Dwyer denies Blak

first_imgREIGNING Olympic champion Elaine Thompson was in imperious form as she completed the sprint double by claiming the women’s 200m title at the Jamaica National Championships on Sunday.Thompson, who just edged out training partner and rival Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in the women’s 100m on the previous, did so in much more convincing fashion over double the distance.  On this occasion, Thompson pulled away from Fraser-Pryce down the stretch to stop the clock at 22.00.  Fraser-Pryce, who was also well clear of the field, finished second in 22.22, with Schillonie Calvert-Powell third in 22.92.Fraser-Pryce was out of the block quickly to close ground on Thompson in the first 100m and held a slight lead coming off the turn.  Her MVP teammate, however, had plenty in reserve and pull clear of the rest of the field with relative ease.In the men’s equivalent, Yohan Blake was denied the satisfaction of claiming a sprint double when he was passed on the line by Rasheed Dwyer.  Blake controlled the race for most of the way but it was a late charging Dwyer who claimed first place in 20.23.  Blake was second in 20.27 with Andre Ewers third in 20.48.last_img read more
