Here are a few tips to help you build the culture you desire: 1) The leadership behaviors YOU consistently model will impact your team's culture FAR more than any speaker or consultant can ever do. 2) One of the fastest ways to demotivate your best team members is to tolerate mediocrity from everyone else. 3) Your best employees would prefer to work by themselves (or even short-staffed) rather than work alongside someone who gives the bare minimum. 4) Only allow people to stay on your team whom you believe in. 5) How you celebrate excellence says a lot about you. 6) How you address non-performance says a lot about you. Takeaway: Believe in each person on your team and keep your expectations high.
