2013 will be our year! ...But how?
Have you had a storybook year or season at work or school or in a club? Something that felt like a Lifetime movie, making it to regionals for the first time for choir, or smashing your sales goal for the quarter, or collecting a ton of stuff for your canned food drive?
I am trying to figure out what factors influence extraordinary success in a team setting.

Obviously, lots of stuff is situational - what the members are like, what the economy is like, things that are not under our control. I'm looking instead for things that I can replicate - especially habits or strategies that I as the leader can adopt to help keep my team motivated and productive.
If it helps, I lead a department within a radio station that sees a huge number of members burning out. The work can be extremely rewarding but is always exhausting, and I also struggle because it's hard to figure out how to set goals that help me measure how we're doing.
However, no worries if you don't have advice for my specific situation. I'm looking for observations you've made of what went right for you and your team, that I can then generalize to figure out things to try in this next year!
