Mind Mapping for Success and ROI, by Top Executive Coach, Christine ComafordJuly 31, 2010
IRS = ROI
Today I want to write you guys just a few sentences on team building. HOW do we keep our team motivated? Recognition is a HUGE piece of that puzzle. In fact, even when team members hear us praise someone ELSE on the team, it’s a proven fact that they’re all inspired to try harder. So this week, keep in mind the two IRS factors:
1. Initiative – Responsibility – Speed. When you have a team member who takes the initiative to always move you and your business forward in creative, effective ways, and they take responsibility for projects and new endeavors, and on top of it all, they understand the URGENCY of SPEED and always being focused on the end game, THAT is a team member to work with as closely as you can and to praise publicly.
2. And remember when praising to use the other IRS: Identify – Recognize – Seize the Opportunity!
Identify specifically what they did for you / your company.
Recognize their efforts with some sort of reward – your words are great, but a tangible thank you rocks the house, even if it’s just a wonderful meal with you to celebrate.
Seize the opportunity! Great team members don’t come along every day. Find out what inspires this person about working with you and your business and put them in charge of it! If it’s sales, give them a great product to launch, if it’s marketing, ask them for a new look at your old list or marketing plan.
You get the picture. Whatever you do with your team, just don’t do NOTHING. Remember, your biggest competitor is INERTIA.
Next Wednesday, I’m going to hold an incredibly focused Q&A call with some mind-blowing training around how to build a 7-figure business and create huge ROI on everything you do for your company. I’ll send you all an event invite – it’s not a free event, but it is affordable – and a GREAT investment to get my personal coaching on your toughest questions.
I’ll send you the details by the end of Tuesday, and I want each and every one of you to know that YOUR success matters. It matters to me, to the people you will touch in your life, an it matters to our NATION. That is not a joke. So take your next steps seriously and practice IRS on yourself! Have initiative, 100% responsibility, and speed in all you do.
Until next week’s call,
