Defining Core Behaviors for Team Alignment
Contrary to pop-culture belief, leading effectively is not a natural trait. It is true that many people are drawn towards leadership roles. But becoming a great leader that has the ability to guide others in leading themselves for getting things done is a learned behavior. The clearer the person is in their purpose, the more compelling they'll be in having an aligned team.
Purpose Thrives in Alignment
Misalignment never fixes itself. Having an aligned team is critical for success in the mission purpose. A great example of a leader that boldly expresses her compelling purpose is Ellen Latham the founder of Orangetheory. Ellen inspires people both inside and outside the Orangetheory studios to find the confidence to reach their goals. She leverages her authority to remove the obstacles for her people to create raving fans internally and externally.
You will be able to recognize misaligned energy when team members celebrate the lack of performance of other stakeholders. The responsibility of a leader is to keep the team aligned with the mission purpose. People will follow a leader that has clearly defined their purpose and is committed to following through even when a character enhancing experience reveals itself. Remaining true to oneself displays for everyone to see, the overwhelming commitment to the vision.
