A Winning Team Is Just Like a Great Pizza


A winning team is just like a great pizza: One good looking pie, with lots of ingredients, a slice of the goodies for everyone -- and a lot of sauce.

pizza


Famed business consultants Jack and Suzy Welch say leaders of winning teams spend a lot of that sauce on top performers and it is one element that makes a team work. They reward them for their contributions and build their self-confidence so they'll take on even greater challenges. They hold them up as a role model for others on the team.

The best team leaders devote a good deal of energy on middling performers, relentlessly coaching them. As for the do-nothings, they spend time helping them create resumes so they can find a job where they will be successful.

Winning teams have a game plan. They understand how the competition thinks and fights, and how their team can make a plan to think and fight better. They know that winning will make their lives much better in real ways.

They don't need strategic planning committees or lengthy reports and projections by others. In today's real estate market, say the Welches, strategy means picking a direction and "executing like hell."

Their leaders infuse team members with crazy-positive enthusiasm about what winning will look like for the company and for them as individuals. They promote clarity, direction, and outcome.

HI Gabe,

Well written article.

The mode you describe is used by my broker here at RE/MAX in Mammoth Lakes. Always encouraging, checking in, kicking butt if necessary and always being fair.

I think one key that isn't talked about is that the broker who succeeds, is himself/herself, a great role model to follow and serve as a mentor. Most have been around the block and have a wealth of information to share.

Thanks for the post!

Gabe, Now that's an analogy.

And it's all held in by the cheese. Not a ton of paperwork and or reports.

Just remember not all toppings work well together, unless your really hungry lol

Enjoy the day

Very true, Bill

Cheryl, sounds like an opportunity for some one to open a new one.

Cal, Sally and David, your pizza's are on their way (slow delivery though) :-)

Marco, do you want pepperoni?

Bryant, I'm taking orders, just let me know the toppings you prefer.

Thanks Don, have a great weekend.

Gabe, I really like your post a whole lot - as a matter of fact, as much as I LOVE pizza! I'm going to suggest it to the AR Staff for consideration of being a featured post because it's fresh, exciting, motivating, and just about as good and maybe even better than Pizza!

You're the best!
