How to encourage long-term thinking in teams

How to encourage long-term thinking in teams

  Long-term thinking is an important strategic consideration for teams and we enjoyed writing this article for Sales Initiative on the subject. You can read it here or below.   We are all easily tempted to think short-term. We get that. Short-term focus can yield short term rewards, which can be very tempting. But we all know that we need to think longer term too. So what is long term thinking for teams? It is simply to: STOP and reflect on how you are doing ANALYSE: How you have achieved success so far; what did you do to make you and your team successful? CONSIDER: Based on your success, what actions and behaviours could you take with you into the future to ensure more success in the longer term? ASSESS: What could you do better going into the future? CREATE a culture of learning; What could we learn from our experiences to take into the future? REVIEW all of the above to get the complete picture; what does this mean for today and what does it mean for us in the long term? What do we need to do now and what do we need to think about in a longer perspective? You and your team probably have sales targets to reach for the next week, month and quarter, which require you to focus on the here and now and those shorter term results. But by encouraging and promoting long-term thinking you can achieve so much more. With long-term thinking you focus on the relationships (internal as well as external) rather than the sale, which can secure sale over time. And... read more

The practicalities of great teams

The practicalities of great teams

Sometimes we talk about the magic of great teams, because it can feel pretty magical and great when your team is working really, really well. It may seem as if it is just happening, but great teams and teamwork are rarely down to luck or chance. Great teams come from doing good, practical things that create the camaraderie, sense of shared purpose and teamwork that make it possible for teams to do well together. And those practical things are often more simple than you would think. We often make the mistake of thinking that we have to make things very clever and complicated for them to make a difference. Well, we've found the opposite to be true - when you find the core things that create a great team, you'll see that most of the solutions are very simple, yet very effective. That's what this book is about. Any team can be great, with the right focus and the relevant solutions. It doesn't have to cost a lot of money either, it just takes some time and dedicated effort. And when you see the results, it's soooo worth it. So if you're leading a team and know that you could do more to create a really cohesive, engaged and successful team - check out this book, it's got plenty of practical solutions that you can start implementing today. And if you're a team member and would like your team to work better together, then there are solutions in the book that you can use too - and you may well want to share the book with your leader too.... read more
