You hire the best candidates to create a productive team, but are you letting them succeed independently? Do you struggle with giving your staff autonomy? It’s important as a leader to develop trust and create exceptional relationships with your workers for many reasons. Whether you want to boost morale or you simply need to focus on your own priorities again, here’s how you can help your team become more self-sufficient.
Ditch Long-Winded Meetings
If your company is hosting staff meetings longer than 60 minutes, it’s likely you’re wasting everyone’s time. Other than trainings and professional development, multi-hour meetings can be detrimental to your team’s productivity. One way to help your team get the job done? Give them time to do it. Take advantage of the 21st century and save smaller agenda items for email.
Empower Your People
Coaching your employees to succeed benefits every party involved. Don’t micromanage. Focus on giving staff members the tools they need to complete a task. It allows you to prioritize your day-to-day duties rather than doing someone else’s work for them. If you’re tired of setting them up for a specific task, show them how to do it independently. Struggling with co-worker disputes? Designate a mediator to help parties work out their issues. Think of creative ways to empower your workers to problem-solve without you, and you’ll both be grateful.
