Not getting the results you want from your Employees? 7 Steps to Create a Productive and Innovative Organization, by Loretta Kuhland
Are you busy tracking down the status of projects and work that should have been done? Are you consistently disappointed with results taking longer than you thought? Are you chasing updates rather than being briefed on the status of projects? Do you wish your employees would take the lead?
How do you get to a place where your time is spent on strategic planning, motivating and guiding staff, building relationships with stakeholders… with time left for the gym and dinner before 9pm?
It really isn’t as difficult as you would think. But, it does take a shift in focus and a conscious shift in how you spend your time.
First, you need to invest time and energy to create a different work environment. How?
Once the expectations for the environment are out there, you need to nurture and deepen the work community you have created. This work is ongoing:
By shifting your focus to develop a living culture of trust and understanding, you will have created a work environment where all employees know what they need to do and why. When they don’t hit the mark, they are supported. When they do hit the mark, they are celebrated – as individuals and as teams. Employees will feel safe to work to their utmost and to take the initiative. Employees will be motivated to work for the vision.
It’s time. Stop complaining about what isn’t happening and create the work environment that innovates and follows through.
