You are only as good as your team! Here are five ways to keep your team inspired to drive the positive business results you are looking for:
1. Lead through their strengths. -When/where do they perform at their best? Ensure your team feels valued!
2. Reinforce positive behaviors more than coaching to corrections. -Let your team know you appreciate them for all they do.
3. Solicit their input and incorporate their ideas into business planning. -Let your leaders lead! Allow them to lead change in the business from their perspective.
4. Lend their talents throughout the company. -Stretch their skills to other teams in the company to allow adaptability and demonstrate flexible leadership.
5. Remember the small things. -Coach from the business and human skill set. You work with them 40+ hours a week so remembering their children’s names, their birthdays and/or favorite snack demonstrates you are invested in them completely.
Good luck with building those WINNING teams!
