Every leader, team and organization wants it.
Yet, as much as it is sought after and worked for, Momentum often remains elusive.
The truth is…
- Momentum does not come easily.
- Momentum is not automatic.
- Momentum is fragile.
- Momentum is often a mystery.
While we can’t presume on momentum, we can be prepared for momentum.
Let’s talk about how?
Here are 3 ways leaders get prepared to experience momentum.
#1 – Alignment
A staff only becomes a team when it becomes 100% aligned around the Vision & Values of the ministry or organization.
Here’s our first challenge: Usually, there are one or two members on the team who tend to pull in their own direction. There are usually one or two team members who can’t keep up with the rest of the team.
Alignment requires courageous conversations and courageous decisions in these moments. It requires courage to lead.
#2 – Consistency
Great leaders and organizations practice what they preach.
Our key role is to be the culture we want to build.
In addition, we must also live the vision out consistently. Our lives, in addition to our voices, should clearly and consistently communicate the vision.
We must also be committed to the blocking and tackling of leadership, remaining focused on the basics. Commit to do the little things well. If we can’t manage what we’ve got, why would God entrust us with more?
#3 – Urgency
Complacency is the # 1 gravitational force working against successful organizations.
The greatest threat to future success is current success.
Every day we have to declare war on complacency and mediocrity and embrace urgency, because we cannot change what we’re willing to tolerate.
