3 Ingredients Interim Managers Use to Build Great Teams
The 3 ingredients Interim Managers use to build teams that work as a single unit and deliver sustainable results.
If your interim managers juggling everything on their own, they’re not doing a good job. The sign of a well-run organization is one where everybody is working together as one, leaving the leader free to focus on big-picture stuff by not getting bogged down by day-to-day activities.
A team is only as good as the person leading it. Good leaders leverage the best skills and talents of individual team members to create a team that works well together. They know how to manage poor-performing employees in teams by pairing them with other members that can support and teach them, as well as, delegate activities that play to their strengths.
Companies are realizing that teams have a greater influence and control over overall performance than individuals. Thus to boost growth and reach goals, most are now offering group incentives. Schemes and programs that reward the combined effort of a group. Collective responsibility, collaboration, and efforts are the main focus of modern motivational programs in companies today.
Interim managers find people that work
There’s nothing that dampens the team spirit more than somebody that avoids work. It increases the workload on the remaining team members and slows down progress. If you’ve got a rotten egg in the basket, work on ways to help them find motivation and passion in their work. If despite your best efforts, it’s not working out, don’t be afraid to let them go.
The best team members are those that respond quickly, work well with others, and are willing to go the extra mile to get stuff done.
