If I were just starting out with my organization and I would have to create a new leadership team, I would: first determine what I want the leader to prioritize. It is important that the team is in an agreement when it comes to organizational strategy. I would want a leader who has a broad, diverse skill set and different strengths that can utilize when executing goals. Second, I would consider the personal qualities that I desire. Considering the personal qualities that I would desire in a leadership team may help me understand what to look for when selecting individual leaders. Thirdly, I would define the goals that I want my team to achieve. Considering the specific goals, I want the leadership team to achieve is important. Like if I need a leadership team to implement a specific initiative or change, defining the goals I hope to achieve may make it easier to find the right members. Next, I would communicate my mission and visions for my organization. Lastly, discuss guidelines and systems for measuring these goals. Hopefully that will help the team become more productive, efficient, organized, and help eliminate potential confusion among leaders and to ensure more sustainable growth.

If I was just starting out, and I came into the current organization I am with now, I would first survey the field. I would take a week just to observe what strengths the people at my work can offer. Based on what I see, I would make sure to put those who are great at getting tasks completed in leadership positions immediately. I would tell them, that it is their duty to teach the people underneath them to work to be as effective as the new leader is, working as a team. I would put those who are great with human interactions as the face of the organization. I would want them to be the first person that a customer would meet when they come in the door. They too would hold a seat on the leadership counsel. I would have great communication with my leaders. I would make sure to check in with them every day. I would get to know them. I would find out what their likes and dislike were, what help and support they could use outside of work. I feel that by following these methods, it will encourage the team to work harder and more cohesively than they could have on their own.
And always, I would put God first each day. I would talk to Him in prayer and ask for his guidance as I worked with them people that I have been assigned. I would pray that I would be able to love them as He does, and to lead them in good paths.
