Step 001: Define the overall goal / key result of the business. It is critical that everyone on your team is aware of the bigger picture and overall aims of the business. This is especially true when looking at your employee’s involvement in achieving their goals. People who set objectives are 10 times more likely to succeed than those who don’t. As a result, setting a corporate objective with measurable metrics is the way to go and an excellent approach. Then, find a location/platform where you can share this information with each employee. With that in mind, you can then match your company’s aim with the individual goals of each team member. Writing down a goal enhances your chances of achieving it.

Step 002: Assign tasks based on the strengths of each team member. It is critical to play to your team members’ talents and strengths for them to be happy and productive. Employees are 61% more engaged if their supervisors focus on their talents, according to a Gallup poll. This means people feel better when they are doing things that they excel at, and they perform better as a result. Make sure you understand your team’s strengths before assigning responsibilities to achieve great results.

Business Leaders of Ireland, in the new world of work, it is vital that you ensure your team meets in person. If there is a platform for sharing ideas, teams have greater chemistry and produce better results. Managers should use an appropriate brainstorming method to develop ideas among their teams.

There are many advantages of brainstorming and exchanging ideas such as simply gaining new ideas, solving issues, and improving your team’s overall performance.

Step 004: Improve the Work Process Continually. Using a weekly check-in technique will enable your team’s work process, faults and difficulties to emerge. It is important to make ongoing changes in your process to obtain the best outcomes possible. It’s a good idea for a manager to check in on everyone on a frequent basis to see how they’re doing and if they need a little encouragement to get over a major obstacle.

Step 005: Motivate and encourage your team. People are emotional creatures and creating objectives and assigning tasks based on their strengths enhances the likelihood of success, yet this does not diminish the need to encourage them. The beginning and end of the process are the greatest moments to encourage and motivate your staff. People can become stuck, and it is recommended that they be reminded that they are moving in the right direction to complete their tasks. They should also be made aware that they have an important role in the result.

Step 006: Provide feedback and acknowledgement for accomplishments. Provide comments and acknowledgements to your team members. People are recognised to be more motivated by these two factors than by money. Providing regular feedback makes everyone more pleased and keeps them motivated.
