Put a Spring in Your Team's Step
With Spring fast approaching, it's the perfect time to slough off those winter doldrums and re-energize your team.
Here are 3 things you can do at the end of the first quarter to instill renewed energy and focus your team:
- Revamp your strategic plan. Sit down with your team and lay out your goals and priorities in a strategic, focused way. Not only will you ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, you will also establish agreement around intended outcomes and results.
- Utilize online assessments. Consider having your team take an online version of a trusted assessment, such as the VIA Survey of Character Strengths. Online assessments are often shorter than their official counterparts and don't cost a thing. Plus, they're sure to get your team out of a rut or help them think differently.
- Invest in a series of lunch and learns. Short, informative sessions held once a week over lunch on topics like communication, conflict resolution or decision making are sure to refocus your team and add to their repertoire of skills.
