3 Ways to Lead Your Team Through the Storm
When storms of disagreement rage on a team, feelings of frustration can quickly surface. Rather than shrinking away from conflict, encourage it. Remember that "storming" is an inevitable stage that all teams encounter. Healthy debate is necessary for a team to grow, find viable solutions to challenges and deliver exceptional results.
Here are 3 ways to help lead your team through the storm and help them get back on course:
- Break it Down. Break large goals down into smaller, achievable steps.
- Shake Things Up. Redefine roles and tasks. Help the team focus less on frustration and more on achieving the final goal.
- Celebrate Small Wins. Give recognition at appropriate milestones to keep momentum going and leverage the energy of the team.
