Strong Leaders Synchronize Their Team

By Sean Buda @ Caffeineforclosers.com

A good coach is able to pair a team of strong individuals, while a strong leader can pair a synchronized group. Just like a conductor conducts a band or a leader of a row team conducts his rowers, business leaders must conduct synchronization of their subordinates to achieve winning results.

In professional rowing, each member of the rowing team must be a part of the synchronization that produces winning results. To make this happen, each member must be paired specifically for that row team. This is done by the leader who knows what it takes to get each member to push the whole way through a race without losing the momentum and synchronization the team is creating.

We win together and lose together. In rowing, teams of six walk up to the podium with their leader to except their trophies. Likewise when they fail, they walk as a team to the bus together excepting defeat. Whether you are a coach, manager, or leader it is important to be there for your team through wins and losses, while helping the team in challenging times not as a boss but as a coach. Coaching and assisting team members will develop your creditably as a leader.

If you lose, consider it practice. Like in rowing, teams don’t go out and row in perfect synchronization the first time in the water; rather, it is practice that evolves the members to learn each other’s abilities so that they can flow.

While developing a team and the interpersonal traits of a leader, remember to encourage and congratulate members of your team! Investing your time in your employees promotes personal value and emotional encouragement. The more deposits you put in their emotional account, the more valuable they will feel. Together, through practice, you create value to progress the organization and team.

Coaching, practicing, being present, and investing time in employees ultimately will lead to the synchronization that allows for a team to operate with a fluid flow of success.

Remember: It’s one thing to be a good manger while it’s another thing to be a good leader.
