Have you notice that your sales have been plumating and noone seems to know the reason? Or maybe the amount of time you have to spend mediating office disputes are more than you could handle. Or perhaps its the masses of resignation letters on your table.
If those are the constant fears you face as a team leader or manager, this article could shine a light on whats happening in your team.
Who is in your team
A team is only as strong as the weakest member. This Chinese proverb can not be more true as to how you should treat and groom your team.
Taking time to know more about their background and life would allow you to create bonds and know why performance are dropping. Employees would also appreciate if their superiors take the extra effort to remember more than their last profit margin.
Not good with words? Teambuilding programs provide Ice-breaker programs to break the awkward barrier and allow you to learn more about your team through fun training.
Breaking the barricade and recreating bonds
Each of your staff are unique individuals and for them to work as a formidable force, they would need the bond to work as one.
Your role as a leader is to break the walls between the individuals and help them recreate the bond to forge forward as a team. You can do this by employing Indoor teambuilding programs which are conducted in conducive environment, ideal for in-depth teambuilding training.
Through teambuilding programs, your team are exposed to simulated scenarios which are less stressful than actual work situation. They are challenged to work and perform as a team as they would in the office. Through this simulation, the team would be discovering and learning the communication skills required in the team. Through fun and effective training, your team would have the opportunity to learn how to work together but not risk your company operation.
Setting the goals
The worst thing for a team is to operate without a leader.
To be that leader, you will need to be clear on the direction you would want your team to move towards.
Set periodic goals for them to pace themselves and occasionally check on their progress to be sure the team is moving on the right direction.
With these goals, your team will have the time line and direction to perform tasks required to achieve that profit line you aim.
