Gold Medal Teams on Respect

Teamwork is essential to a Gold Medal Team. One of the essential skills for Gold Medal teams, and their leaders is RESPECT. Something I noticed a long time ago, is that many skills and traits that are part of being Resilient, begin with the letter RE. Respect is one of those words, and a foundation for the resilient (and inspired) team.

RECOGNIZE the contributions of each team member. Reward contributions.

ELIMINATE negativity, and disempowering words.

SAY what you mean, and mean what you say.

PUT thought into your actions, choices and the words used.

ENCOURAGE and engage others. Model empathy and consider other’s feelings before acting.

COMMUNICATE CLEARLY, effectively and often.

TALK in a way that is respectful, engaging and clear.

FOCUS on the issue, and not the personality.

UNDERSTANDING goes a long way in building resilient and respectful teams.

LEARN from situations and LEAD with respect.

If you intend to be of assistance, your eye is not upon the trouble but upon the assistance, and that is quite different. When you are looking for a solution, you are feeling positive emotion— but when you are looking at a problem, you are feeling negative emotion. --- Abraham Hicks
