We tend to believe that our performance and productivity are the most important. In fact, we find equally important is our ATTITUDE and how we interact with others. The chart below illustrates how various attitudes may impact a team:

ABILITIES + ATTITUDES = RESULT          

Great Talent + Bad Attitudes = Bad Team

Great Talent + Bad Attitudes = Average Team 

Great Talent + Average Attitudes = Good Team

Great Talent + Good Attitudes = Great Team 

(John Maxwell's "The 17 Laws of Indisputable Teamwork) 

If you want outstanding results, you need good people with great talent and aweseome attitudes. When attitudes go up, so does the potential of the team!

Personal Application:

-What is your attitude portraying to others? In what ways are you impacting and raising potential of the team? 

Does Your Emotion Impact Your Attitude?

Attitudes can be contagious, and emotions don't have to be grand and obvious to have an impact. Subtle displays of emotion, such as a quick frown or long-lasting smile, can have an effect on others around us.

Consider this excerpt from Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradberry:

"You may not always realize it, but there are many times when you allow your emotions to sway you in one direction while your rational mind is tugging at your shirt to go another way. Whenever you find your mind having a battle of the brains (emotional vs. rational), it's time to make a list that distinguishes the emotional side form the rational one. The list will allow you to cler you mind, use your knowledge and take into account the importance of your emotions withhout letting them take control."

OWN THE RELATIONSHIP

In today's world, every business is a "relationship" business. In business, as in life, relationships play a key role in success or failure. The most accomplished leaders are those who are successful at building relationships. 

Consider this quote:

Says Howard Schultz, President and CEO of Starbucks, "The only thing we have is one another. The only competitive advantage we have is the culture and values of our company. Anyone can open up a coffee store. We have no technology, we have no patent. All we have is relationship around the values of the company and what we bring to the customer every day. And we all have to own it."

Application:

Consider how you or your team can work together to create a competitive advantage for your business or organization. How can you be so strong individually and as a team that it propels you towards excellence?
