How To Get More From Your Team As A Business Leader

Posted By Administration, Friday, March 13, 2020

As a business leader, it is important that you know how to get the most out of your team so that the business can run to a high standard each day. This can be challenging when you have a large workforce and people will have different levels of motivation each day, but the best leaders will always know how to keep each member and whole teams engaged and willing to put in the work each day. In addition to helping the business, this will also create a productive work atmosphere which everyone can benefit from and will encourage people to work hard each day. Here are a few tips that should help.


Give Regular Feedback

It is hard for employees to feel valued and motivated each day if you do not provide regular, honest feedback. This can help you to show your appreciation for their hard work while also helping them to improve in certain areas.


Set Goals

The best business leaders will use goal-setting as an effective tool to get more from individual employees and teams. This can be highly effective, but you must make sure that the goals are in both the short and long-term, achievable but also challenging. Additionally, all goals should be celebrated and rewarded once they are achieved.


Show That You Care

One area that many business leaders struggle with is striking a balance between being a friend to employees and the boss. You certainly need to show an interest in staff and that you care about them, but you must also be a leader first so work needs to come before anything else and you need to make sure that you maintain a professional image. You can show staff that you care by:

-   Engaging in conversation

-   Listening to their feedback

-   Providing flexible working hours/remote working

-   Celebrating life achievements

-   Help them to achieve career goals


Create A Welcoming Space

You cannot expect people to be motivated if they do not have a welcoming, stylish and comfortable workspace. This should involve having a high-quality and attractive entrance mat from a specialist like First Mats - this will help you to maintain a professional image and allow work to arrive feeling productive and ready to work to a high standard (it is also helpful for impressing visitors to your business).


Use Role Variation

People can easily get bored and frustrated if they come into work each day and they are asked to do the same thing. This is why it is a smart idea to use role variation to keep staff engaged and motivated to perform and there are lots of ways to do this, including projects, collaboration, training and new responsibilities. Additionally, it is helpful if you can allow staff to progress their careers within your company so that they will not look elsewhere when they get bored or ready to progress.

Follow these tips and you should start to get more out of your team on a daily basis. This will help the company to grow but it will also create a productive work environment and keep everyone happy and engaged.
