Strategic Teams Session Two Empowering Your Team
Sharing Accurate Information: Let people understand the current situation in clearer terms. Begins to build trust in the organization. Breaks down Information is Power structures and games.
Establishing Shared Values Purpose:What business are you in? Value:Operational Guidelines Image:Picture of the Future Goals:Who, what, where, when, etc. Roles:Who does what by when. Structures:How do you support what you do?
Empowering Your Team Four Questions You Must Ask 1.What is our ultimate purpose? 2.What am I to do to flow with that? 3.How is it stretching me? 4.How does my part affect the whole?
Empowering Your Team If a team does not reach its full potential, it is almost always because of a payment issue.
Empowering Your Team The Price must be Paid by Everyone Individuality>>>>>>>>Cohesion>>>>>>> Synergism
Empowering Your Team The price must be paid all the time. Trust = (Selflessness x Time) A moment of selfishness can undermine years of trust building relationship. Growth in A + Growth in B = Exponential growth in a synergistic relationship.
Empowering Your Team Team Synthesis (Cohesion) results in Exponential Growth in: Purpose: The business your in. Value:Clear Guidelines Image:A brighter or Big Picture future.
Empowering Your Team The price will constantly increase if the team wants to improve, change, or keep increasing its corporate value.

Empowering Your Team The Will and Testament of an Empowered Team Willing to make financial sacrifices for the team. Willing to keep growing for the sake of the team. Willing to make difficult decisions for the sake of the team. Willing to empower others
Empowering Your Team Price – Value- Cost Relationship Cost is the measure of the difference between Price and Perceived Value. Consider the cost of your purpose. Consider the cost of your values. Consider the cost of serving your team. Consider the costs others pay for you.

Empowering Your Team Leadership acts as the server in a network.

Multiplication of the team is the result of the multiplication of individual values, and of the multiplication of shares values. When your team has determined their shared values, invest in these values and you will see the team multiply.
Multiplying Your Team Jesus was the great Team Builder: 4, 12, 120, 500, countless multitude John 17:1-9 "Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began. 6 "I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 8 For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.
