"Frank's skill in asking the right questions is un-mistakable, and is at the core of his leadership philosophy.

The power of these questions cannot be underestimated, especially if you want to lead and not manage."

Do you work on your team?

The success of a project or even a business depends—more or less—on the leadership qualities of the managers. A lot of the work is done in teams. Teams stand and fall with the quality of their leaders.

Creating a successful team and keep it a success is hard work for the whole team. You can’t just throw a group of people together and call them a team. Certain minimum conditions must be fulfilled:
  1. True communication
  2. Engagement of each team member for and in the team
  3. The will to learn and explore
  4. Structure
  5. Coordination

Once you have a team you need to create the framework the team has to work in: time management, rules for meetings and the like.
It costs time—and money—to design an effective team.

The biggest obstacle to effective teams is impatience.

Do you work on your team—daily?

    Team work is very important in business. We have had some really good teams at our office. We attribute this to some of the same things you mentioned above. Mainly good communication. The teams that have had trouble have been the ones that suffer.

Because I value your thoughtful opinions, I encourage you to add them.
