Global CEOs are most concerned with finding, keeping, and developing the next generation of leaders. While those worries are genuine, it is nearly impossible to address them when you do not have a productive team. Your team members are not meeting deadlines, learning, or growing when they are unproductive. They might also feel dissatisfied and less engaged. Over time, disengaged workers will either stop working or quit, taking their knowledge with them. That will eventually have a significant effect on your bottom line. Elizabeth Harrin at Rebel’s Guide to Project Management shares five ways to boost your team’s productivity.
Tips for a Productive Team
The amount of work a team can complete while still producing high-quality results is known as team productivity. There are no widgets to count, gauge, or graphically display your team’s productivity. Instead, productivity reflects how the team feels about its work and how you, as the team leader, feel about it. To build a productive team, you must provide your team members with the necessary tools, support, and a healthy work environment. Setting clear expectations, leading by example, and reducing meeting times are simple ways to boost productivity.
