A team busy with lots of activities is not necessarily the same thing as progressing forward toward a bigger goal with whatever amount of activity in which your team engages. You may be crossing a lot of tasks off your list; but when the results are not matching your bigger goal expectations it’s important to understand what’s working, what’s not, where the kinks or blocks are in the flow of team activity, and then adjusting activity and/or people for better progressive flow. Clarity in your activity flow helps you course correct and get back on line or upgrade the way in which you are achieving your team goals. Leadership is also about taking accountability, which is different than blaming. Taking accountability as a leader is about understanding the talents, abilities, and passions of those you lead and then placing people in positions for maximum productivity in end goal achievement. This means turning up the level of your listening and observation skills.
