Champion Building Ingredients

Red Velvet Cupcakes

I love gourmet cupcakes! Great cupcakes are a combination of presentation, aroma and of course, sweetness. The price tag does not make the cupcake great. The difference is how all the ingredients come together for a superior experience. Likewise, great teams deliver superior performance when all their ingredients come together. The right combination mixes in just the right way to create extraordinary results!

Acquire Talent
Talent is an essential ingredient. Talent wins championships! But, talent is merely a great place to start. The end product is likely to be better when starting with great pieces. But through their individual greatness, the pieces still must complement each other. Excellent coaching clearly facilitates developing cohesiveness. Nevertheless, the talent must be cultivated to perform as a unit. To get the most from the collective contribution, individual greatness may have to be sacrificed for the benefit of the whole. Or in the cupcake world, the great cupcake may sacrifice a little sugar in the cream cheese icing so that the icing’s tartness accentuates the super sweet decadence of the cake beneath it. The masterful cook acquires superior ingredients in order to combine them in such a way that maximizes their collective flavor. Ultimate success occurs when all ingredients contribute toward combined, optimal greatness.

Bring Passion
To achieve heightened levels of performance someone must really know how to cook. The ingredients are important. The recipe must be meticulously executed. But, the intangibles are absolutely essential. It really is more the chef, than the ingredients! For building a team, synergy represents the intangible. The combined ingredients produce more than they can individually produce separately. Passion is an intangible that creates value. Fundamentally, passion creates life! And, it makes the team work together better. But, that passion has to be channeled properly. That is the leader’s job. The ingredients must strategically interact to result in exciting accomplishments. Consequently, a great team emerges when every member accepts their individual role toward making the team great. Then, they passionately perform.

In conclusion, talent is the ticket to ride. Passion makes the ride epic! Commitment facilitates the ingredients to contribute more than they can singularly. Then, the coordinated effort delivers the result; it wins the prize! Championship-level output is not just ingredients and cooking. It is all elements passionately cooperating toward a common good. Good ingredients will get you eating cupcakes. A great recipe expertly executed will keep you wanting more. But by adding commitment to the process, people keep eating cupcakes until they have to loosen belt loops. Build the team that passionately wants to keep succeeding. Let’s grab another great cupcake!
