Management "AND" tip: Help your team discover what they do best AND reinforce their strengths!

Management "AND" tip: Help your team discover what they do best AND reinforce their strengths! | VirgInspire | Scoop.it
Virginie Bergeron's insight:

If, like me, you've been frustrated by feedback focused on "areas for improvements" and left many yearly performance evaluation with a list of trainings to attend to be better at something you disliked, there is hope!!!!

 

let me introduce you to.....Gallup Strengthsfinder method

 

Decades of Gallup research has proven that when individuals have the opportunity to discover their natural talents and purposely develop them into strengths, the effect on individual and organizational performance is transformational

 

Interested in maximizing the performance of the people you lead ? Gallup's strength solutions will help you and the people you lead be more engaged, more productive and overall happier 

 

I use it a lot with management teams as a key to understanding people uniqueness, buildingcompatible teams and creating a common performance culture

 

This method is composed of a test and some tools that help you increase your talent awareness and build an action plan to develop them further. It's quick and easy to implement. 3 sessions with an employee will get significant results.

Management "AND" tip: Stick to your Team Meeting routine AND make them attractive!

Management "AND" tip: Stick to your Team Meeting routine AND make them attractive! | VirgInspire | Scoop.it
Virginie Bergeron's insight:

Having regular, planned, team meetings is essential for efficient day to day management. That, we all know. Making them attractive is a cherry on the cake you might enjoy 

 

I've seen many leaders underestimating the benefit of planning regular team meetings and putting some energy at making them attractive. In fact, planning regular meetings with your direct reports is essential for you and for them and has many hidden vertues. 

 

Dedicate time with your team to discuss how to make those routine meetings more friendly, focus on the atmosphere, the place, sometimes just a little change can make the difference. Have you noticed how talking to someone in a "neutral" area changes the discussion's nature....try meeting in a different place for once, see if something changes...or try to set the room differently, use your team imagination and skills

 

The way a team meets is part of its culture and therefore you can initiate change in a team using this tool... Have you heard of Systemic Delegated Process? If your team has over 5 members, you can also use this tool to keep all members active and interested in the process.

 

Tadaaa !!! I've said the key word: process ! For a change pay attention to the meeting processrather than the meeting content, you will be amazed by the difference it can make

Management "AND" tip: Encourage openess AND foster conflict!

Management "AND" tip: Encourage openess AND foster conflict! | VirgInspire | Scoop.it
Virginie Bergeron's insight:

You've already made a big step forward by encouraging openess in your team or organization. You thought that was IT...guess what? It's only the beginning....You'll have to take one more courageous step: Foster Conflict

 

Most people instinctively avoid conflict, but as Margaret Heffernan shows us, good disagreement is central to progress. She illustrates (sometimes counterintuitively) how the best partners aren't echo chambers -- and how great research teams, relationships and businesses allow people to deeply disagree

 

The former CEO of five businesses, Margaret Heffernan explores the all-too-human thought patterns — like conflict avoidance and selective blindness — that lead managers and organizations astray. She examines why businesses and the people who run them often ignore the obvious -- with consequences as dire as the global financial crisis and Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster
