In the past few years of my life, I’ve received many words of both praise and criticism because I constantly focus on learning and growing. I blend my perfectionism with my high standards for myself, and out of nowhere comes this strong desire for learning and growth. When something doesn’t work, I either try to fix it or focus on other areas. People try to give me credit for the wisdom and knowledge I’ve gained from books and mentors. I say “no, I just like learning from people.” Personally, I believe time and people are our greatest resources. But the key to expanding our options is leverage. Today, I’m in a learning mood. Here are some of the things that I’m currently focused on implementing in my life.
Keys to Building Great Teams, by Primerica Founder Art Williams
- The key to building [successful] teams is all about building personal relationships.
- Building [successful] teams requires that you have a passion about what you do.
- To build [successful] teams, you’ve got to become a leader, and you’ve got to build with the right kind of people.
- To build a [successful] team requires a “oneness” in your organization.
This is one of the best ways to summarize what I’ve learned about group dynamics and synergy. I can’t wait for the future because my foundation is on it’s way to being rock solid.
