Do you remember a time where you believed a team is unable to do something and turns out you were right? It can seem as if a leader’s beliefs is a predictor of the team’s success. Truthfully, it’s often the leader’s belief which manifests the outcome.
When you believe the team is unable to do something, your beliefs will leak out. For example, if you do not believe in them, you risk unconsciously sending this message to them. You might micro-manage or have them in a mindset such as obligation. In some way, you will be constraining them.
Try shifting your beliefs to see others bigger than they see themselves. See them as capable of far more than they believe possible. Your beliefs will send a message of confidence in their ability. I am not saying they always succeed, but I’m willing to bet they get further than when you don’t believe in them.
When a leader believes in a team, so will the team.
You’ve got this.
