Once you’ve established your goals, you’ll need to decide how you’re going to make it all happen. For anyone who wishes to have a successful business, it’s necessary to more than just establish clear objectives.
If you’re in the middle of a period of change or completing a change process, you may need need to re-think what happens next.
You may also need to consider re-evaluating your leadership style in order to keep everyone on track. A management and leadership coach or mentor can be invaluable, not only to provide a neutral perspective on your leadership style and the current state of your team, but to make sure everything remains goal-focused.
We’d also highly recommend implementing something called ‘action learning’ for your team. This is simply a regular meeting (typically once a month) where the team gets together and one person raises an issue that’s bothering them.
This often requires a designated facilitator early on if it’s to be effective, particularly if there is dissension in the group. But once a team gets used to the process, it can be an extremely effective method of problem-solving.
It also gets people used to pooling their resources and discussing problems rather than working in virtual isolation and allowing them to escalate to the point they become unmanageable.
