Can you afford poor quality teamwork?
It shows on the bottom line when collaboration is not working
In many workplaces, too many resources are tied up in bad or random collaboration. It reduces job satisfaction, it reduces efficiency and effectiveness – and ultimately it reduces profit. How can we change this picture? What does it take to release the energy tied up in poor or inferior collaboration?
Good teamwork does not happen on its own
Many workplaces need to strengthen their internal working environment, and the present financial crisis has only underlined this need. If we do not make it a conscious discipline to practise cooperation, it will have consequences for the working environment, the quality of the work delivered – and ultimately the bottom line.
Aim for motivation
Leaders who want to become better at evoking motivation and engagement have to work with their way of thinking and focus on seeing the intrinsic motivation within all employees.
Engagement – a source of energy that never dries out
Engagement means everything. Research shows that when we are engaged, our efficiency, productivity and value creation increase by a factor of 4 compared to a scenario where we “just” go to work with no other motivation than making a living.
To stay competitive, change must be part of the way you think and act.
If you want your employees to live your brand, you need to nurture it from within.
Project management training
Your staff needs to have the right skills and training to manage projects effectively. However, training will only have an effect if it is closely related to your business.
To engage people in effective collaboration, you need to invest in building a strong team. What you get in return is staff satisfaction and a better bottom line.
Management team support
An effective management team is vital when dealing with change. That is why developing your strengths as a team is so important before you embark on a large change initiative.
One of the real and still hidden resources of your organisation is the level of energy and engagement that people gain and provide – both at work and in their private life. The key is understanding how effective personal energy management will help us achieve higher performance and life quality.
