5 Pointers for Getting More from Your Team

5 Pointers for Getting More from Your Team | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Managers are taught that holding employees accountable is the key to getting results, yet they often fail to clearly communicate their expectations. Rather than getting frustrated, try these steps: 1. Know what you want first. We may assume others are being thoughtless or selfish when they don’t satisfy our needs, but we haven’t clarified in our own minds what we want. Get clear on this first.

Are You the Role Model for Unhappy Workaholic Employees? | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Tony Schwartz, president of The Energy Project, conducted a survey of 19,000 employees in conjunction with the Harvard Business Review.
The news was sobering: Only 25 percent of leaders model sustainable work practices.


But there was some good news: employees with leaders who model good work practices reported being 55 percent more engaged and 77 percent more satisfied at work. They were also 72 percent more likely to report a sense of good health and well-being.


What does this mean? If you look around your office and see a bunch of unhappy workers: you could be to blame.


To achieve lasting high performance from your team, be a role model in four key areas:

(From the article): Creating workplace collaboration isn’t as simple as just telling employees to work together. Instead, managers must give their teams specific tools, then oversee how they are being used.


“We often tell people to work together, but we don’t tell them how,” said E Allan Lind, professor of leadership at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, North Carolina. “First, we have to be mindful that people working together is not a normal state of things.”

 

Managers must show how good ideas come out of working together. They must also demonstrate that real collaboration equals innovation, and be on the watch for communication breakdowns.

Without a doubt, you have put effort into trying to motivate and inspire your team to perform at a high level. But even the best managers and leaders get stuck from time to time on how to instill these qualities into their team. No doubt, team members have struggled to display these qualities.


When initiative, productivity, creativity and execution are lacking, the costs to the team can be very real. The tangible results can be a lackluster product or service, subpar customer service, team members finding it difficult to work with each other, a leader struggling to get vital feedback. This costs your company, your department, your team and you revenue and reputation.

I grew up in the New Jersey suburbs with typical boyish aspirations of being a football player, astronaut, fireman or Olympian. I didn’t consider growing up to be a leader. But it happened somehow. Although I watched my dad carefully, I guess it was because I never really sensed I had someone before me to follow. Today I lead my company as President of Unique Photo, NJ’s Camera Superstore and its 75+ employees. I lead my non-profit as a board member at The Josephine Herrick Project.So here’s why I lead:I lead because I have grown to learn the hard and valuable way that no vi
