7 Steps To Create Better Teamwork

Teamwork doesn’t just happen. Teams are not just made up of friends.

Some of the most effective teams I have met are made up of people who don’t even see each other outside of work, who don’t even share the same interests. Yet, at work, in a team situation, they work well together, each completing a part of the whole without being asked, each contributing what they can and need to in order for the outcome to be completed efficiently and completely.

So how do you create a great team and good teamwork?

Make Your Vision Come Alive

I’ll bet that when you started your business you didn’t just decide to start it because you “wanted to make money”. Even if you didn’t formally work on it or you may not even have been conscious of it, I’ll bet that when you started your business you had an idea of what you wanted to achieve at the end of the day.

You might have called it your dream or your goal, or perhaps your vision, but I’m sure that deep down inside you had a very clear picture of what you and your business would be like at the end of the day. You “saw” yourself serving your customers, helping them and giving them solutions, you “felt” the pride and the achievement you would put into the business, and I think you would have smiled when you thought of how you would feel and the lifestyle it would give you.

Am I right?

That feeling and that idea are what I call your business vision. How can you harness those deep down desires into making your business successful?

How To Write Effective Emails

My business relies heavily on communication, especially, over distance to clients spread across the country relying on email.

I know more than anyone else what an effective tool email could be – as well as the dangers of poorly written, overused, email communications.

So, how do you write effective emails? How do you make sure your message is properly conveyed and is concise and understandable? Read More

How To Create A Self-Running Business

Let’s talk about why you started your own business.

I suspect words like “financial freedom” feature a lot as well as the desire to spend more time with your family, being able to travel and see the world, or find that elusive work-life balance. You would think that being your own boss would allow you to organise your time so that you can dial in the right amount of work-life balance wouldn’t you?

Well, how’s that working out for you?

If you are like most small business owners, as you started your business, you would have been caught up in the hundred tiny things you had to work on, especially at the start when resources were too short to hire staff. Then, as the business grew, and you did hire staff, you seem to be spending more and more time “managing” people. As processes became more complicated, the call on your time increased, not decreased. Your new hires had to be shown how to do things, and they couldn’t quite make decisions so you got involved. Then, when things seemd to have settled down somebody resigned and it started all over again!

Do I need to go on?

Create Workplace Wellbeing Programs

There are some well-established studies that show that “wellbeing” in the workplace makes a lasting difference to the bottom line.

Apart from these studies, by university psych departments as well as business schools, it’s logical if you think about it. Employees who are uncomfortable at work, who carry problems into work and don’t find a release at work, logically are not as productive as happy, engaged employees.

Employees who are engaged at work – who identify with their teams and the company, who feel pride in theirs and the group’s achievements, work more productively. Unlike their disengaged, unhappy counterparts, they jump at the chance to contribute to something they believe in.

All workplaces try to create “wellbeing” in one form or other. Think of the Friday drinks. But workplace wellbeing, leading to solid employee engagement is more than just the regular social event.

How do you create a working wellbeing program?
