Collaboration has become a 21st century buzzword, but are we recognising its importance? Through collaboration we can solve complex problems quicker by applying knowledge, skills and resources across teams. Working in teams not only enhances day-to-day productivity, it also helps to develop strong working relationships which is critical for wellbeing.
Are your people managers encouraging strengths-based collaboration?
If ‘collaborative working’ means firing tasks or squeezing in brief team meetings, then the likely answer is no.
It seems that Managers are starting to feel disconnected from their teams due to intense pressures and continual deadlines. The impact of this means the are not delegating the right tasks to the right people, therefore people are not using their strengths and jobs become difficult, less enjoyable, performance slows and motivation falls.
How can we expect to achieve and succeed with disconnected and unhappy teams?
Lets look at the stats.
25% of people feel their strengths and weaknesses are overlooked by their managers.
40% of these people feel disengaged at work.
How can we help?
We have developed a strengths-focused Performance Motivation programme. This programme aims to help your people managers recognise the teams diverse range of skills as well as collaborate more intelligently. Therefore, boosting motivation and empowering teams to achieve the best results.
