Building Bonds of Value

Team Building

Team Building

People notice everything you say & do and that includes your team members. Each one can be inflenced by your commitment, your goals and plans, your ability to follow through, and your willingness to help her/him succeed. All these things create value. A leaders job is to remove doubt and add value…create enough value and team members will want to stay. Making team members feel valued and important is vital.

When you measure the sucess of your team building efforts, it is not how many members you have or even how much money you make…it is about how many people you empower, how many lives you help change and how many people learn to see their full potential. These are THE results that are most rewarding.

I love it when a stranger becomes a friend…and I see it happening over and over as I grow my team of unique and amazing individuals!

To coach is to serve, to serve is to succeed—AUTHENTICITY

PRINCIPLE # 5

PRINCIPLE # 5

The foundation of Principle-Centered Coaching is built on five core principles that present an image of the kind of coach I want to be.

By following these five principles found in “Build it Big” by Direct Selling Women’s Alliance, I strive to cultivate a supportive, safe environment in which my team will flourish. This is principle number FIVE.

The Principle of AUTHENTICITY: An AUTHENTIC leader is comfortable being herself (or himself) and does NOT put on appearances. Strive to be natural, genuine, and honest in your dealings with your team.

I would go a step further and say, “Be genuine and honest with everyone you come into contact with”.
Authenticity” is all about being real. Genuine, not an imitation. Guard your character. It is who you are when noone is looking…Be aligned with your core values. When you are noble and trustworthy, your team and others will respect and listen to you.

Authentic leadership is all about being the person you know in your heart that you are and NOT what others want you to be or what is popular in the world to be. Authentic leadership does not come from your title or from the size of your bank account. It comes from your very being and the person that you truly are. It is taking the previous 4 principles, TRUST, RESPECT, SERVICE, and INTEGRITY (and I add FAITH)…I believe this is our AUTHENTICITY.

“Authenticity is the alignment of head, mouth, heart, and feet – thinking, saying, feeling, and doing the same thing – consistently. This builds trust, and followers love leaders they can trust”. Lance Secretan
