Leading Across Multiple Teams
Establish clarity around the company’s vision and goals.
Leaders must clearly communicate an organization’s vision and the team’s goals, says Lesly. “Having the right people who are clear in their communication to their team so everyone is on the same page is essential in leading across teams,” she notes.
Watch the video to hear three tips from Lesly about how to lead across various teams.
- Hire people who are aligned with the company’s vision and culture.
- Ensure goals are clearly understood by everyone on the team.
- Communicate potential hurdles so that the team can get ahead of them.
After that, it's really clarity. Clarity is huge. So everyone on the team, including the directors, should understand really what are the one to two biggest goals for the team?
And then after that, it's communication. I hold biweekly meetings with my directors, and we talk about things like people and metrics, and then we talk about big wins. But then we also talk about things that maybe are coming up that could be complicated or throw, maybe, a wrench into our normal process. So we want to make sure that we're getting ahead of that the best we can. And so communicating that to make sure that we're doing the very best we can to set our teams up for success, I think is key.
So having the right people who are clear in their communication to their team, so everyone is on the same page, is essential in leading across teams.
