Few business managers are actually aware of the fact of how their relationship with their team really affects their final outcome, results, and their relationships with the final customers. Unfortunately, this translates into a poorly unproductive team that will stand far from success.
In a recent article, 3D Design Engineer and expert, Nicholas Polley points out 5 key solutions/tips to have a better productive team and that we found interesting in sharing:
1) Lead by example
Adhere to good work ethics yourself, from manners to hard work, and it will be noticed and followed.
Communicating with your work team ensures tasks are performed well and everyone is clear on their responsibilities. Poor communication leads to poor work which leads to frustration and confrontation. This also goes for employees.
3) Give and Take
Giving out to staff for turning up late for example while in the same breath expecting them to work late throughout the week, is counter productive. It leads to resentment and ultimately poor productivity.
4) Give positive feedback
If there are issues with certain staff members that need to be addressed, then approach it with solutions on how to overcome the issues.
5) Let them make mistakes where possible
If an employee makes a mistake and it is dealt with accordingly then next time around they are unlikely to do the same.
5 +1) Try to have fun
If this means just chatting for 5 minutes about non work related things, then do so. That 5 minutes might seem like an eternity for many business owners but could lead to double that in productive time.Complete article Top 5 Tips To Having A Productive Team By Nicholas Polley
