It’s a new year and time to look at how your crew is performing.  Sometimes yes, perhaps?  Mostly no?   And you realise the team didn’t perform well as well as it could have last year either.  And the year before that was average.

We know all about the importance of highly performing teams in Organisations but when yours does not excel, what do you do?

Statistics show:

 79% of great performers in teams will leave for better horizons and those left behind will disengage (more than 70% of employees do) if you don’t get the team rockin.’

  • About 2 in 10 employees are disengaged in their work and undermine the effort and contribution made by others, according to researcher Gallup

How can you turn this around?

 Lead them!  If you are unsure what that means, take these immediate actions:

  1. Have a Vision for your team. Design it with them and talk it through with them regularly
  2. Ensure each person knows what specific goals they have to achieve. Provide ongoing feedback
  3. Be upbeat and optimistic and approachable!
  4. Communicate all the time with them. The more you communicate respectfully and in a way, that involves your team, the better they will respect you
  5. Show integrity. Do what you say you will do
  6. Never accept mediocre or non-performance. Manage your people well and that includes their performance
  7. Celebrate success with them time and time again
