Out of Our Control

Great team leaders know when to honor a job well done, even if it didn’t result in the desired outcome. They recognize that not every circumstance is within the team’s control and those variables can account for disappointing results. To constantly second guess a team based on circumstances creates a poor outlook on the team. With that outlook, I would believe the result must be their fault, they must have done something wrong and it’s my job to point it out. A great team leader is secure enough to accept what can’t be controlled and acknowledges a job well done in the midst of disappointing circumstances. This creates a safe team environment which will motivate the team to do their best every day.
