Empower Your Teams with Purpose and Pride
The strength of the team is each individual member, the strength of each member is the team.
– Phil Jackson
As we have reentered the workplace, leaders may need to rebuild relationships and strengthen a sense of community by highlighting the great work teams accomplished this year. How do we reignite and rebuild our teams? In this roundtable, Leader Coach Sabrina Hebeler shared tactics to connect purpose and five key focus areas to re-empower our teams with pride and purpose.
In the roundtable and the discussion, Sabrina challenged leaders to meet their teams where they are, reflect and focus on key areas to best understand and drive our teams forward in a positive, engaging manner.
- Reflect on the current performance of your team. If you were to meet them where they are, where do you think they would be?
- Identify your first step to re-building and re-empowering your team. What does success look like in 90 days?
- What barriers exist to you being successful? What tools do you need?

Reflective Practice | 9P
Like most individuals, organizations fail to hit the mark exactly as envisioned, on a regular basis. The pace and complexity of our world mean most projects are filled with moving targets. Teams do their best to plan and anticipate setbacks, largely based on prior experience. In some instances, a team will fall completely flat and land nowhere near the target. This is typical because the team does not engage in reflective practice.
Connect Because You Care | 9P
One of a leader’s greatest responsibilities is to ensure teams are engaged and productive. People are motivated to increase productivity when leaders take time to get to know them personally, make them feel comfortable, and help remove barriers in the workplace.
Reward and Recognize | 9P
Do your employees feel appreciated? It’s important for people to know that their hard work is noticed, and they’re valued for their contributions to the organization’s success. Rewarding employees creates a positive company culture of engaged people.
I Believed There was No “I” in Team – I was Wrong
Over the course of our careers, whether in our foundational education or our first “real” jobs, we all remember hearing one particular quote, “There’s no ‘I’ in team.” In fact, I said it many times myself as a young leader. Well, we were wrong. Teams, whether made up of executive leaders, middle managers or front-line employees are the composites of individuals. We can only successfully create, develop and operate as a team when we recognize this fact and learn to use it to our advantage.
