How to drive strong ownership, commitment, accountability and passion in your team

How to drive strong ownership, commitment, accountability and passion in your team | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

As a leader – here are five practical things you can do to deepen the level of ownership, commitment, accountability and passion in your team. 

donhornsby's insight:
While I have directed this list to “leaders” and “managers”, these topics are so universal and basic that anyone in the team, no matter what level or position, could suggest them, promote them and bring about positive change with them…. especially if they are eager to make a difference and are willing to be courageous.

You achieve greatness when you tap into the potential of your team.
donhornsby's insight:
Building a great team means building a personal relationship with each member of your team. It doesn't have to be a close friendship, but a recognition of people as fully developed human beings and not just team members who get the job done. Make sure you spend some time getting to know them, show them that you genuinely care about them and have their best interests in mind. When you return, you'll have a team that's ready to unleash their greatness.

Do You Know How Each Person on Your Team Likes to Work?

Do You Know How Each Person on Your Team Likes to Work? | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

When you first become a manager, it’s helpful to spend time up front connecting and creating a common language with your team. When your team knows how you like to work and how you plan to manage them, they’re able to produce results faster. When you know how each of your direct reports likes to work and communicate, you’re able to save time when setting direction and following up.

 
donhornsby's insight:
Being a first-time manager can feel a lot like navigating your way in a foreign land. Taking the time up front to learn your team’s language and share your own will create a strong working relationship, reduce misunderstandings, and increase the speed at which you get work done.

7 Steps to Managing a Remote Team Successfully

7 Steps to Managing a Remote Team Successfully | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
Learn how to manage a remote team successfully with helpful tips from Ahna's Snapchat community.
donhornsby's insight:
(From the article): Create in-house atmospheres by personal interactions. Have you ever been on a conference call and everyone is trying to speak while also trying to be polite? Have you been working online for so long that you forget who’s on the other side? Do you find yourself communicating too emotionally? I think the online community suffers from a lack of compassion, and I don’t necessarily think that is our fault. It’s easy to forget we are dealing with legit humans on the other side because our world’s largest mode of operating is via electronic equipment. “Communication is KEY.. and often. Via video and audio conference calls, we held meetings EVERY week, even if there wasn’t anything significant to discuss. Recognition in front of peers works WONDERS! And builds trust, respect, and appreciation for the supervisor,” said Liz (@lovelycreationz). To create an in-house atmosphere, meetings should be conducted via video. Why? Because seeing faces will cultivate emotion among the team for one another, makes everyone stay focused on the meeting, makes it easier to share ideas and information without cutting one another off, and keeps frustration to a minimum. Even though everyone won’t always look nice or have the best background setting, it’s important to find ways to remind one another we are a team, and we’re comprised of real people.
