FIVE CONSIDERATIONS FOR NURTURING HIGH PERFORMING TEAMS
Support your team with the right culture and lead by example. Be as honest, open and transparent as is practical.
Seek out those in the business who are innovators and connect with them. Bringing different points of view to the team can provide inspiration and also help them to see, grow and share opportunities with other parts of the business.
Build sustainable processes to support development in your team and business. If you take the time to recognise, value and develop your team’s talents, you will naturally put them to good use.
Your team should be able to link their everyday tasks and responsibilities to the values and mission of the business. It’s important for employees to understand why what they do is important and how they add value.
Agree a commitment to trust: explain to your team how it is important. Make sure they understand that it works both ways – you need to trust them as individuals but you understand that they need to trust you too.
