In recent posts, we’ve discussed in great length the importance of team compatibility and using the good synergy a team produces to follow established business processes. When these business processes are followed and the plan is actually executed, we achieve those long-awaited results. Using trusted business advisors to get an outsider’s perspective can be incredibly useful.
Easier said than done.
Building Transformational Teams With Trusted Business Advisors
We understand that building transformational teams is a difficult task, to say the least. As the leader, you have a lot of weight on your shoulders. It’s obvious your success depends on those results, but it’s not always clear that it involves managing a team that is under-performing for whatever reason. Unfortunately, being able to take a step back and objectively see the reason(s) that the team is struggling with execution is not something a leader can always do, no matter how good they are.
It’s not meant to sound discouraging, just realistic. Even the best leaders are often overwhelmed by other responsibilities and may be too close to the problem to see the solution. That’s why we often suggest enlisting the help of an outsider trained in business development and strategic execution.
Before you do, check out some of our previous posts as a quick refresher:
Here we talk about the pressures of a leader to succeed, their struggles with team cohesiveness and compatibility, strategic planning versus strategic execution, and the signature “roadblock employee” that brings down team morale.
Some tips include identifying that there is a problem, then communicating effectively with your team, and realizing that not all team members are a good fit, so you can build a transformational team.
Hopefully that was some good information to take your teams to the next level. If not, you might want to consider an outside perspective.
The Importance of the Impartial Third Party
There’s a reason why interior designers, coaches, editors, and consultants exist. It’s because sometimes you need someone to be impartial. You need a trained eye, with valuable experience, to take a step back and point out what you can’t see for yourself. For instance, an interior designer would be able to say those curtains with that couch is throwing off the whole balance of the room. But you don’t see how those colors or patterns on those curtains are offsetting because you see those curtains every day. You live with them. A trusted business advisor can give you the insight you need in this situation.
Of course, in our case, it’s not couches and curtains, but real people with personalities, strengths, and weaknesses that you, as the leader, have come to know and even like. It’s hard to make those tough decisions, so why not leave it to someone who’s able to look at your team, your processes, and your goals with a clinical, objective view and make decisions based on what’s best for the organization.
Hiring our team of trusted business advisors for our outside perspective gives you one less thing for you to stress over. Granted, performing at optimal levels of execution and still achieving those results will always be a lot of work, but getting some extra help and advice is a stress-reliever.
You have enough to do and enough to worry about; don’t let obsessing over your team dynamics be one of them.
Nexecute: Trusted Business Advisors
At Nexcute we have built several programs that will help you build your transformational results-achieving team.
First, it starts with The Elephant Conversation, which is exactly what it implies. We’re all aware of the Elephant in the room but nobody wants to talk about it. It’s uncomfortable and tense but often having that conversation helps you overcome what’s been holding you back. We provide an open and easy dialogue to ensure perfect clarity to help us move forward.
Once those issues are out in the open, we undergo The Momentum Accelerator. This tool allows us to align the right processes with the right people in the right team. With the plan in place we help determine the key performers who will guarantee those results.
