Change is incredibly hard for some people, so you need advocates for any new plans you propose. Start with your management team. Before you launch a large-scale change initiative, such as rebranding, take this tip from Paul Anderson, CEO of leading global resources company BHP Billiton.
Improve morale on your team by bragging about the employees who have left your team—either through promotions or by leaving the organization. Bragging about individuals who went on to bigger and better things can show just how well you train people to become superstars.
Encourage your team to think boldly about changes by asking them to imagine that your organization’s products, services, systems and processes have just been destroyed.
Do your employees jump on assignments with speed and enthusiasm? If you want your team to produce quality work but at a faster pace, follow these tips:
Employees need to be well-informed to make the best decisions. But many leaders hesitate to share information with staff.
Team members don’t always expect to be right. They also don’t expect you to adopt all their ideas. However, if they’re going to feel empowered, you must show that you value their thoughts and contributions.
Is your team strong on ideas but weak when it comes to action? You may be managing a group of idealists. Harness their energy and commitment with these strategies:
Some employees refuse to put their jobs first—even at work. Job duties take a backseat to personal obligations, and that is often a huge drain on other employees’ time and patience. Don’t let them get away with it.
When chronic absenteeism becomes a problem, motivate employees by creating a “hooky day” policy.
Invite employees to offer three levels of new and innovative ideas.
