Always trust each other
Lions are the most sociable member of the cat family and can be found living in groups called pride. A pride of lions is made up of up to 25 individuals and each one of them always backs each other, in good and bad times. Lions are already powerful and if they hunt in pride, they become more powerful. They do not have any ego problems while hunting together. It doesn’t matter to them who catches the prey, what matters is the prey must be caught so that the whole family can eat.
This is a big difference, found in leaders and lions. We humans are full of ego and don’t miss any chance to show it. We keep our ego first, keeping aside our needs which is important. There are some, who will die of hunger but they won’t ask for food from others. But the lions keep their needs first and wipe out their ego. They play smart.
Do you distrust your team? Do you think the team you are leading will not help you to achieve your goal? Have you ever doubted the potential of your coworkers? Have you ever hesitated to share something with a close one in the organization? Do you suspect, will your customers provide you with the need when you need it the most?
If the answers for above questions are all yes then you are in the wrong way. Lack of faith towards your team is easily seen on your face. When your squad finds their master doesn’t trust them, their level of motivation falls. This puts down the morale of your coworkers and disrupts their potential. A team with low morale will never give you high productivity. Ultimately, it leads to losing every target.
You need to trust your team to achieve your goal. If you want to be a leader or you are already a leader, be social. Be in touch with your team, who are under your guidance. You can’t go far alone. To be safe and last long, you need people who have the same vision or need, just like you have. You need to think for them because they are your pillars and your future assets. They too think about you and your reputation. They too want you to stand in the limelight and walk on the red carpet. So, have faith in your pride.
