The Job of a Team Leader
On the surface, a team leader’s responsibilities appear straightforward: Show up, make sure everyone is on point, and keep the ball rolling in the right direction, so your team meets its goals. But unlike team facilitators, who are usually brought in to solve a specific team issue or challenge, team leaders are constantly responsible for their teams.
When issues arise around communication styles, diversity, lack of trust among teammates, and decision-making, team leaders must work to problem solve while also setting the group on the right path again. Every day, team leaders work to manage projects and people, improve team motivation, and ensure progress towards shared team goals.
How Effective Leaders Create Successful Teams
Team leaders know success starts with their team.
Effective team leaders are aware of and engaged in the success of individual team members. They remain involved in the team’s daily activities and progress. By recognizing problems early and offering insight, guidance, and direction, team leaders motivate everyone involved to stay focused on the group’s shared goals.
Without strong leaders, teams quickly fall apart. But with the right support and guidance, a unified team can easily exceed expectations. When team leaders invest in their team by making sure each team member understands the group’s purpose, willingly contributes knowledge and expertise, recognizes their contribution to the whole, and remains invested in reaching the team’s shared goals, the team will inevitably succeed.
Unfortunately, leading others is rarely straightforward, especially when you want your team to grow and evolve. But what if you had a proven process designed to deliver continuous team improvement?
With Right-Minded Teamwork’s 5-Element Framework, you do.
“Right-Minded Teamwork separates the games of “team bonding” from the hard work of team building. [It is] real-world team building in a realistic, direct and safe manner. Right-Minded Teamwork is also a support system, providing a rich array of resources.”Patrick Carmichael, VP Best Practices Institute, Former Head Talent Management at Saudi Aramco

You need a practical process that will help you navigate the ups and downs of your team.
Right-Minded Teamwork allows team leaders to:

- Answer the question, “What is the best way to address this difficult situation in my team?”

- Offer their teams the best possible team building method
Right-Minded Teamwork (RMT) is a unique, proprietary process to team building and team growth, developed by consultant and Certified Master Facilitator Dan Hogan over the course of his 30-year career. The RMT method is a non-confrontational, continuous improvement process for small groups, large groups, and teams of all sizes.
Unlike many team building approaches that fail to address true teamwork issues, RMT focuses on addressing underlying issues to produce real-world results. Instead of leading teams through meaningless games and unproductive team exercises, RMT team leaders focus on acceptance, forgiveness, and self-adjustment among teammates. Right-Minded Teamwork directly addresses and resolves the root cause of even the most difficult teamwork situations.
Is it time to turn your team around? If you’re ready to lead with 100% confidence, facilitate and overcome even the most difficult team member situations, and easily bring your team together, RMT is for you.
When team leaders focus on team building, continuous improvement is the natural result.
Facing potential shutdown from their credentialing agency after a significant performance decline, Joel S., Vice President of the Prairie Island Nuclear Power Plant in Minnesota, knew things needed to change. So, he implemented Right-Minded Teamwork (specifically, the third Element Work AgreementsA Work Agreement is a collective teammate promise to transform non-productive, adversarial behavior into collaborative teamwork behavior. More) to support team member behavioral alignment with the company’s vision, mission, and values.
Shortly after establishing Team Work Agreements, team members began to respectfully hold each other accountable, ensuring everyone was honoring their commitments. Individual team members began going above and beyond simply because they could and wanted to. And conflicts that arose were addressed in a professional and supportive way.
“If you had asked me 2 months ago if the leadership team would reach this level of performance, my answer would have been emphatically, “NO!” Now that we are on this road, I don’t ever want to go back.” ~ Joel Sorensen, Vice President, Prairie Island Nuclear Power Plant
