Purposeful Practices #2

Purposeful Practices #2

Six signature strengths separate highly effective leadership teams from those that struggle. Each week I will share one of these signature strengths, what it sounds like when it is missing, why it is important, and what it looks like when you have it in your team.

“We lack a common purpose, and we could be 10-15% fast if we got this right.”

“When even we aren’t clear about our purpose, imagine what it is like for people outside the leadership team?”

A clear team purpose, explicit standards of excellence that define team behaviors and meeting guidelines that make meetings matter define purposeful practices, the second signature strength.

Leadership teams that drown in organizational firefighting and do not invest in this signature strength struggle because they do not define their team “why” nor align their actions or create a shared vocabulary for high performance.

When purposeful practices are alive and well in the executive team, you will see how leadership behaviors in the leadership team excite and engage people in the organization.

Secondly, purposeful practices encourage the leadership team members to collaborate and support each other in such a way that it sets the positive example for everyone in the organization.

How explicit are the purposeful practices in your leadership team and are they leading to high performance throughout your organization?
