Hey Team...

Great weekend in California....

Had an incredible time speaking to the amazing Doctors and Teams that were present at the Johnson and Johnson "The U" Event... (thanks Bonnie!)....

A room of high performers looking to take their Medical Practices and Teams to the next level!

Right up my alley... 

Helping to make Teams better.....

I shared a few key thoughts... but the one that sticks out the most is this: Your teams are made up of real people....

And... real people have some issues....

Everyday... somebody on the team can, and often will have an issue...

But if you want a team to perform at the highest level.. and have the greatest chances of winning... you must unify that team....

You must work to see each person as the individual that they are.. and align them to the mission, vision, and goal of the Company....(you owe them that)....

And.. they owe it to themselves to be very clear about what they want out of life personally and professionally (hint= you also owe this to yourself)....

And what we as Leaders can understand what makes our team "tick" at the individual level... 

We can then lead them accordingly...

We can then motivate them accordingly...

We can then help them win.. and they help the team win...

But, this is only half of your job as a Leader...

The other half is finding out what Winning means to YOU and Your Team/ Company/ Practice...

In sports, most times, it is simple: Win the Championship...

But in business, it needs some more detail...

But before we define what winning is for the business...

We must always define what "winning" means for ourselves...

What do we want our life to look like?

What do we want our life to feel like?

What is the speed that we want to pace at each day?

What are the values that mean the most to us?

What really motivates us?

Is it really money?

Is it being a part of something?

Could it just be a passion to lead others?

Maybe you hate what you are doing right now and are really looking to launch the 2.0 version of yourself...

Whatever it is... honor that, get clear with it, and then start to built that life....

That is winning.....

And sometimes winning does not look that great to others...

Who cares.

It is your life.

Do what you need to do to answer your calling..

Then and only then will you be able to be a true Champion...

When you are a true Champion.. you are then ready to build that Champion team...

Now.. let's hit the ground running.

Let's GO!

Chase Greatness...
