Episode 5: Equipping Your Team - How To Become A R.E.A.L. Success

Do you look at the members of your team through a “ME” or a “WE” lens?  

As a leader, do you focus on getting your team to accomplish your personal goals?  Or, is your aim to grow the team underneath you into their full potential?  

These types of questions can drastically shift your leadership perspective and yield exponential results as you seek to grow and develop the team you lead.

Today, life and business coaches Andy Kerr and Bill Cox will continue unpacking what it means to be a R.E.A.L. success.  In last week’s episode, we talked about the R in R.E.A.L. success being “Relationships.” This week, we’ll continue our discussion talking about the “E” of “Equipping” your team for success, both personally and professionally.  

We will:

  • Discuss what it means to equip others for success
  • Discover and overcome some roadblocks to equipping others
  • Talk through some practical steps you can take today to be a person who equips others.  

As a leader, YOU are entrusted to help others success.  As you succeed in this, you and your organization will achieve new levels of success as well.  Are you up for the challenge?  With some coaching and a few tips from today’s podcast, we believe you will be well equipped for the challenge (and rewards) before you.
