Great Leaders Renew Momentum

Great leaders lead morale every day. It gives the team strength, confidence, and even hope as they meet the tough times. Great leaders also know that even the strongest teams can use a booster shot after tough times. They initiate a team celebration about getting through the tough times and seeing what everyone accomplished. Great leaders also participate in an after-action-review (AAR) to capture lessons learned from the tough times. This includes what they all did well and what they can learn from missteps.

Then great leaders do one more thing. They start and then join in discussions about how to create and live the future. Don’t assume that the team should work the same way going forward as it has up to now. Help them see the future and revive team commitment!

5 Key Leadership Questions From 30 Years of Real-Time Consulting

Use These Revealing Leadership Questions to Revive Team Commitment

  1. How shall we measure our success going forward? We’ve grown from this experience. Perhaps we need to measure differently.

  2. What should we change to succeed again in the future? Do not ask everyone, what should we change to survive? It reduces morale.

  3. What separates us from other teams and our customers? How do we close those gaps?

  4. What team culture and vibe shall we build to sustain us going forward? Is it a major change or a tweak? How do we do it?

  5. How shall we celebrate efforts and talents better as we move ahead? This last question will help you see what the team needs psychologically that you may have missed.

  1. Alli Polin says:

    Questions are so much more powerful than telling. When you ask a powerful question, it gets people thinking and committed instead of half-listening to what the leader has to say in a project post-mortem. Great questions here, Kate, and a great approach for all leaders who want to Lead Morale and engage their teams.

      Grateful Alli. I should mention to all reading this stream that your blog posts always pose interesting questions (whether as questions or in stories) that help all to grow. Questions create exploration and from that the sky is the limit!

      Thanks for your comment here.

  2. I love the effort to avoid assumption. By asking questions, it feels like a collaborative coaching approach to spur on problem solving and reinvigorate your team. This is a great reminder that I need to incorporate more myself. Thank you for this, Kate.
