Ways to Create a High Performing Team

What management often forgets, is that both sides of a company need to give and take.  The leader and the employee need to work together to achieve great results.  Because engaged employees lead to high team performance, a positive company culture is necessary. Ways to create a high performing team:Build a diverse team.  Employees from different backgrounds and from diverse cultures provide different points of view, which can greatly benefit a company. – The team comes first.  Instead of putting customers first, make the team the priority.  The company team needs to be well put together in order to please customers. – Provide clear communication.  Team members may miss important tasks or become frustrated if communication is unclear.  Make sure they know what is expected of them. – Create an enjoyable environment.  Work doesn’t have to include boring meetings. Encourage employees to be themselves and to have some fun. Don’t create a culture of scared team members, worried about breaking rules and never being allowed to think for themselves.  Companies need creativity, innovation, trust, and motivation.  A happy, healthy company culture is what all leaders should be striving for. rsz_2018-headshotActionCoach-logo

Growing Your Business with a Strategy

It’s crucial for growing companies to make sure that everything taking place in their business has a specific and achievable, targeted goal.  Make sure every employee is working on something that is helping the business reach that goal.  If they are not, then it’s time to come up with a strategy to make that happen. Step 1:  Define specific goals and document them clearly. Step 2:  Make sure everyone in the business knows where they stand. Step 3:  Break down the goals into quarterly objectives. Step 4:  Post the goals everywhere.  Make sure everyone is motivated. Step 5:  Take each objective and make a list of tasks required to achieve each goal. Step 6:  Make sure each employee understands their relationship between themselves and each goal. Every quarter there should be new objectives assigned to the employees, working towards new goals or continuing to reach the current goals.  Always make sure they are fully aware of their connection with the goals and that everything they do should be to reach them. Remember, motivation and inspiration goes a long way.  Keep your team motivated and your business goals will be successfully achieved.

How to Develop an Effective Team

When you belong to a team you feel part of something larger than yourself.  You all have one thing in common…the mission of the business you work for. Everyone in the team has a specific job function.  They may even belong to a specific department within the company.  But all the team members work together to accomplish the same goals and objectives.  It’s the bigger picture: improving results for customers. The first step is having the leader define the team they are trying to build. Here are 10 tips to build an effective team:
  1. The leader should clearly communicate all expectations to every member.
  2. Each member should understand how the team fits into the company’s goals.
  3. Each member should be committed and feel they are a valuable part of the team.
  4. Each member should have defined goals, designated tasks, and a clear mission.
  5. Each member should feel they have the right resources and support to accomplish their goals.
  6. Each member should have boundaries and enough freedom to carry out their mission.
  7. Each member should be able to work together effectively and collaboratively.
  8. Each member should be able to communicate clearly and honestly with each other.
  9. Each member should be open to change, give rewards, and take risks responsibly.
  10. Each member should be accountable for others by resolving problems, not blaming or pointing fingers.
