Sensational Leadership Creates Teams That Go The Extra Mile


Creating the environment to extract maximum performance out of any team rests with the leader.

Not just any leader – you need to be sensational for maximum performance to result.

It’s not always easy but here we establish core activities for you to undertake to make it happen & ensure your team is going the extra mile.,

1. Establish Clear Expectations

Many teams struggle because they don’t have a clear vision, direction or set of expectations that supports the vision & direction.

To maximise peak performance out of a team, it’s critically important for each individual to know what’s expected of them & how they actively contribute to a broader team & personal goal.

What’s even better, is when they set themselves their clear direction & expectations as part of a bigger team objective– increasing the team drive to exceed expectations & go the extra mile.

2. Keep the Bigger Picture in Mind

Communicate clearly & regularly the bigger picture that everyone is aiming for – a broader objective that everyone feels daily.

Establish several different communication touchpoints so the vision & team expectations are felt across different mediums & in different frequencies.

Ensure everyone has the same understanding & is working together towards the same goal.

Every individuals knows of their importance in team success & how collaboration will make the difference.

3. Provide Motivation & Energy

Motivated teams perform at higher levels & are better able to reach their goals.

Acknowledge team & individual effort & success on a regular basis, always reinforcing the team direction behind the bigger picture.

Find ways to reward & recognise your team members for their effort & success with targeted recognition they truly appreciate as part of the overall objective.

This could be through incentive programs, or simply verbal recognition – establish options with the team & don’t be afraid to overly support their success in reaching the objectives.

Praise is a great motivator & will support your team in going the extra mile.

4. Give Guidance

Coach the team in a positive direction aligned to the bigger picture.

Support the team in every facet in a coaching manner, not providing solutions to challenges but the space to excel & exceed expectation.

Team members understand why tasks need to be done & have. A high level of autonomy to achieve them, only seeking guidance as required or ideas on how to accomplish it more effectively.

Provide positive & constructive feedback, always encouraging team members & individuals to perform at their best.

Check in on the team & individuals regularly to support their journey.

5. Support Unconventional Thinking

Allow team members to come up with creative solutions to problems.

Encourage your team to think outside the box & look at problems from different angles.

Make sure they know it’s ok to be different & take risks.

Nurturing unconventional thinking will allow your team to go the extra mile & be more innovative.

6. Demonstrate Your Commitment

Show that you are committed to the team’s success through your actions – lead by example.

Demonstrate that you are available to support your team & take part in discussions but not provide all the solutions – coaching them for success.

Show that you 100% believe in their abilities & back them in to be 100% successful.

Team members will increase effort when they know you’re dedicated to helping them succeed.

Sensational leadership is what will make a difference. For your team to go the extra mile, you need to create an environment of trust, motivation & support directly from yourself the leader.

The environment you create will build a sense of ownership & commitment within the team, & for all individuals within the team – essential for high performance.
