Are you striving to create better business results through increased team engagement? Are you part of a team that needs to bring your performance up a level to meet your targets? If so, I have put together 3 simple strategies you can implement today to create your High Performance Team.
1. Be The Example
Become an inspirational leader to your teams. Not by what you say, but by how you push and challenge yourself as a leader. Show your team through the expectations you set for yourself. Your teams will see themselves following a leader that wants to drive change and gain more in life.
2. Listen and Learn
This point is crucial. Don’t wait until there is a crisis, or you need something to engage with your people. Don’t wait until there is a problem in their lives to learn about them. Sit down and talk to your teams. Make time for this every day. Find out what they are passionate about and what motivates them. Ask about their family and friends. I guarantee that as you are building your High Performance Team, this time will be invaluable.
3. Let Your Team Fly
I cannot stress enough the importance of this point. As in the first strategy, this is not about being perfect. It is about challenging yourself and taking action to reach your goals. Your team is no different; they need to have the ability to Learn to Fly. Every new bird falls once it jumps from the nest. Your team is no different. You need to help pick them back up and give them what they need to fly.
By following these 3 simple strategies your team will be more motivated, loyal, and believe you are the best person for the job of leading. Take the time to put these action in place each day and watch your team grow.
