Few teams and fewer organisations ever realise the potential power of collaboration and trust.
For them, Purposeful Leadership is a dream, a fantasy that means they do not unite cohesively nor achieve their common goal!
Purposeful Leadership Teams have unity of cohesion and effort towards a common goal or objective – much of which usually includes making more money. And a united and cohesive team – one that trusts each other and collaborates empowers you and your organisation to make more money, serve more clients, save more lives.
Sadly, so few coaches, mentors and trainersI)You can add business schools and consultants too as very few of these individuals have actually been leaders in business and don't do actual research and walk their talk truly understand how to make collaboration and trust happen.
We do. And we can help you realise the power of collaboration, unity and trust in your team and organisation.
Organisations accomplish what they do because of teamwork. And United teams with purpose accomplish more.
Whether you are in business, sport, education, the church and even marriage – teamwork is what paves the way to success. What a leader can do with a great team far surpasses anything they can accomplish alone. As a leader learns how to unite the right people around a shared vision, their influence truly begins to take off.
According to Dr. John C. Maxwell in his book, The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork, the 1st Law of Teamwork is The Law of Significance:
One is too small a number to achieve greatness. Leaders who fail to promote teamwork undermine their own potential and erode the best efforts of the people with whom they work. To accomplish anything significant, leaders must learn to link up with others.

But what is an purposeful united team?
Purposeful leadership and a united team makes a collaborative and trusting team that has unity of cohesion and effort towards a common goal.
And there are five components that enable team collaboration and trust:
When we work together, we will be hacking deep into each one of these so that you can immediately focus attention on the aspects that will have the greatest impact on bringing your team together towards your common goal.
Purposeful teams have a common Purpose and shared Values
Inspired teams share a common Command Intent
High Performance teams know and leverage the Talents and Business Acumen of all the team
United teams Communicate with Influence
Thriving teams are grounded in the solid Foundations of a Collaborative and Trusting culture
Clarity of purpose is a leader's most powerful asset. The purpose of a leader is to champion the team's or organisations command intent and to ensure that promises made to stakeholders are kept. A purposeful leader ensures that the environment supports collaboration and trust in the team so that they can perform at their very best.
Purposeful leaders have a strong sense of direction and a desire to make a difference in the world through serving others. The purposeful leader takes great delight in the accomplishments of the team and in the growth and development of every individual.
A purposeful leader understand that intentions are meaningless without actions. They have a positive, encouraging attitude, and share clear values modeled them in their daily life.
Purposeful leaders inspire teams and build successful, iconic organisations.
Purposeful Leadership is clear about their
MISSION – which defines the TARGET “others” they wish to serve, with
PASSION – which the leader has for the particular issues or PROBLEMS the TARGET face, shaped by the
BELIEFS (and VALUES) – which inform how the leader and team will serve their TARGET with a SOLUTION to fix their PROBLEM.
