3 Things the Most Productive Teams Never Do

3 Things the Most Productive Teams Never Do | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

1. Stop Compromising on Quality

 

The level of quality you're working towards must be decided at the start of a project, not when staring down a deadline.

 

Each product has a different level of optimal quality. For example, if you're working on a mobile game, your attitude towards data integrity--one aspect of quality--will be far different than if you're working on a finance or healthcare application.

 

You must have this conversation up front and agree on what you'll measure and why. This is not just for the technical team, the business must agree as well.

CEOs Shouldn’t Try to Embody Their Firms’ Culture

CEOs Shouldn’t Try to Embody Their Firms’ Culture | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
The Research: Arizona State University’s Angelo Kinicki and Georgia State University’s Chad Hartnell led a team that surveyed the top managers of 114 companies. The executives were asked to rate the leadership style of their CEOs and the culture of their organizations as either task/results oriented or people/relationship oriented. In the best-performing organizations, the study showed, the CEO’s orientation differed from the corporate culture’s instead of aligning with it.

The Challenge: Should CEOs’ behavior really run counter to their firms’ ethos? Is culture clash a good thing?

Ten Ways To Kill Your Team's Motivation Without Even Trying - Forbes

Ten Ways To Kill Your Team's Motivation Without Even Trying - Forbes | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it
There is a huge industry devoted to a made-up topic called “Employee Motivation.” The idea of hiring a consultant to motivate your employees is ludicrous. There are no team-building exercises, backwoods adventures or contrived HR outings that will motivate a team if the team members don’t trust you and other another.

Trust is the topic we don’t talk about enough at work. We pretend that trust doesn’t matter, but it’s actually the only thing that matters in your business.
