No One Achieves Success Alone!

This week we share a powerful message from author and speaker, Jon Gordon. In all my years of playing hockey I had the privilege of being part of two championship teams. If you played any team sports you know how important teamwork is.

When I reflect back on the two championship teams I can see how we were different, we had a unique chemistry and everyone knew their roles and executed those roles with ferocity for the good of the team, nobody's ego was bigger than the team!

Jon's message is a great reminder about the importance of teamwork. (if you have not read any of Jon's books we would highly recommend you do!)

No one achieves success alone. We all need a team to accomplish great things. Teams make movies, create songs, win championships, launch rockets into space, write software, design hardware, bring new products to market and turn around underperforming companies.

The truth is we are better together and together we become a powerful team.

When Alan Mulally stepped into the CEO role of Ford in 2006 the automaker had just suffered an annual loss of $12.7 billion and was on the verge of bankruptcy. However, in just a few short years he was able to turn around the company and deliver an annual profit since 2009.

Many say it was one of the greatest leadership feats in history.

While interviewing Alan Mulally for my new book The Power of Positive Leadership I asked him how he did it. He told me that when he became CEO he learned that Ford was regionalized and acted like they were a number of different companies instead of one company. Ford also had a number of leadership and teamwork challenges and suffered from a lack of clarity, accountability, focus and execution.

Alan Mulally, who defines his leadership style as positive leadership, created a One Ford initiative to unite everyone in the company to become one team working on one plan to achieve one goal. He even created his own “Working Together” Management system (a simple set of 11 ideals, principles and practices) and Creating Value Roadmap (strategy and process) to get everyone to work together, focus on the process and implement the plan. Alan said everyone had to know the plan, embrace the plan and relentlessly work towards the plan. They had to be committed to the enterprise and each other. And they had to be accountable to the values and principles of the culture and to each other.

Ford’s leaders, managers and employees answered Alan’s challenge and became One Team that saved Ford and tens of thousands of jobs, improved the American economy and delivered incredible results.

How is your team doing? Are you One Team? Whether you’re a family, a school, a business, a new venture, a hospital or a sports team, share this article with your team and discuss ways you can become more united and more committed to the team and to each other.

No one achieves success alone. The more you work together the more you will accomplish together.

If your business needs marketing that works, give us a call. We're here to help!

Be blessed this week.     


PS - We are open for business. We are a marketing and consulting company not a motivational newsletter business. We share this because we recently had a humorous experience where one of our longtime subscribers just reached out to us and said they had been receiving our newsletter for over 5 years. They said they needed to update their marketing strategies and thought they should call us. The results of that call, in less than a month we built them a new website and identified a new plan via social media and digital strategies to reach their customers. Last comment made was "I wish I would have called you sooner"

We love helping businesses achieve their marketing goals!
