4 Important Team-Building Lessons Every Leader Should Know

One of the key metrics to gauge your success as a leader is how well you’re able to get your employees to work together as a team. That’s why in this latest Leadership Espresso Shot edition of my podcast, Leadership Biz Cafe, I share 4 lessons on successful team-building inspired from an unlikely source.

Now there’s no question team-building is both an important and often-discussion topic in the leadership space. In fact, doing a google search for team-building will give you over five billion search entries – evidently, there’s a lot of team-building going on out there.

Granted, most or at least the top search queries are for various team-building exercises and a lot of times that’s what we think of when we think of team-building. Of how to create camaraderie amongst your employees to ensure they’ll all work together.

While this is important, it’s not the only thing leaders should be focusing on in terms of not only building their team, but sustaining their ability to continue to collaborate and work off of each other’s efforts to help move the team’s collective efforts closer to achieving its goal or objective.

To that end, I wanted to share 4 important lessons on team-building that will not only ensure team cohesion, but longevity in terms of your collective success. And these lessons were inspired, as I wrote above, from an unlikely source. What is it? Well, to find that out, you’ll just have to listen to the episode.

And as I mention at the end of this episode, if you enjoyed it and gain some insights from it as I know many of you have from my previous episodes (in fact, a few of you have written to me about how you find yourself taking notes while listening to my podcast), I’d appreciate if you would share it with others – either through your social media channels or emailing it to a colleague or friend who’d also enjoy learning about these 4 lessons.

You can also direct them to my podcast page where they can listen to all past episodes of my show as well as find links to subscribe to my show on iHeartRadio, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Stitcher Radio so they can be sure to get my latest episodes when they’re released.

I hope you enjoy the episode and do let me know what you think. I always enjoy hearing from my audience.
