I strongly believe that you have set some goals for this year whether personal or organizational. Well, these goals may be SMART in nature and I also know that there is no 100% grantee that they will be achieved. As a leader in an organization, your sole purpose and responsibility is not only to influence others to make these goals happen but also to participate in the making. Hope you have some achieved already in the first three quarters, of this year. These are aspects you cannot just leave out if you want your team to achieve your goals this year.
Hold Personal and Team Prayers
Praying to God is one basic concept which is really influential in our daily successes. The spiritual realm contributes so much in achieving our goals. Blessings, favour, courage and inner peace are all gifts from the spiritual world which are truly valuable and paramount. You can schedule daily or weekly prayer meetings with your team and make your annual requests be known to God.
Have The Rush Hour Concept
Working on deadlines exerts pressures, motivation and a high sense of achievement within people. When individuals are working against time, execution of duties is done with urgency. You can influence your team to assume that there is no enough time to relax but to execute. Break down annual targets into months, weeks and see how quickly they can be achieved and before you know it, you’ll have accomplished something even before the usual timelines.
Set The Motivational Pace
As a team leader or key player, setting a pace for the rest is one key fuel for achieving your targets. Be exemplary in executing duties, drop all the procrastination and self-satisfactory excuses as to why this and that cannot be done. If you set the performance bar high, the rest of your team will emulate and strive to go even higher than you. Remember, human characters are contiguous based on observation, not mere talks.
