Building a Team


With encouragement and motivation, Leos can work together as a single unit. Understanding why young people join a Leo club is helpful to building a team. Some of the main reasons for joining a club include:

  • Serving the community
  • Belonging to an active youth group
  • Making new friends
  • Developing leadership skills
  • Completing required community service hours for graduation

Teamwork is important for success of your Leo club. To foster teamwork, Leo leaders can begin by:

  • Establishing club goals
  • Explaining overall tasks to everyone involved
  • Assigning specific tasks to individuals
  • Encouraging members to support the efforts of other Leos
  • Encouraging an open exchange of ideas, including contrasting views

To increase the closeness of club members, Leo leaders can:

  • Look for ways to increase the satisfaction that Leos receive from their efforts
  • Reward individual Leos for their contributions
  • Look for ways to increase the prestige of the club
  • Find ways to increase interaction between Leo club members
  • Celebrate successful Leo projects
