DropTask | Rally your team together this 4th July
We’ve all had to work with others at some point in our lives in order to get things done. Whether it’s working towards a strict deadline or organizing a big event, we often rely on fellow team members to help us get over that final hurdle, and they’re often the ones who we’re celebrating with when we cross the finish line. And while some prefer working on their own, many of us can’t imagine facing everyday workplace challenges without a supportive team behind us. Rally your team together this 4th July and create the best team on the block with our top tips below. Boost morale – a ‘good job’ goes a long way Being thankful for hard work and celebrating small successes can sometimes get pushed aside by other pressing deadlines. Recognition of your team’s hard work not only allows you to express gratitude for their efforts, but also encourages employees to strive for greater results with a clear understanding of what behaviors and outcomes your organization values. Share praise by Commenting on a specific job well done, and get the team geared up for the next phase of the project. With the ‘@’ symbol you can mention team members in a comment to thank them for their hard work. Oversee, don’t micromanage Employee autonomy limits the need for constant direction from managers and CEO’s. However, in a 2013 survey conducted by Stanford University focusing on executive coaching, 35% of coaches admitted that delegating work is something that they need to work on. And even when managers do delegate responsibility, they fall into the trap of micro managing the rest of their team, resulting in employees performing at a lower level (as found in a recent study). Instead of feeling like you have to constantly look over your team’s shoulder, take a step back to show that you trust them to perform at a high standard. By granting the team a little authority, they’ll have the freedom to work together to get things done. After Delegating responsibilities, you can gently oversee project developments by looking at the ‘Active’ projects from within the Project Browser. Here, you’ll be able to view what’s in Progress, what’s been Completed, and areas that require your attention. With indicators displaying the status of the overall project, you’ll be able to keep track of project developments at a glance. Define deadlines Strategic deadlines push the team forward towards the desired end goal. Set specific task Due Dates to inform everyone of the activities and timescale required for the project’s successful completion. How do you motivate your team to get things done?
