As we enter new lockdowns the enhanced spirit of a group formed by their mental & emotional state that motivates them to succeed together, will be super key for families & work teams alike.
A few gems that I have used over the years and an interesting article may help!
ENCOURAGE PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY
In all the teams I have worked in, across 4 continents, creating an environment of fairness, no favourites, encouraging outspoken views whilst deeply embracing inclusion & diversity builds trust. With individual & collective trust that you can be yourself, a fabric of psychological safety is woven that allows all to focus & excel on the mission.
EMPHASISE LEARNING OVER WINNING
Team members, of all ages, need to feel they are learning daily in structured and unstructured activities. Providing skill-based programs, shadowing days, internships, assignments & sabbaticals creates loyalty & focus that propels success.
IDENTIFY AND CELEBRATE LITTLE VICTORIES
Stop often to shout about the successes calling out rockstars, heralding the teamship, the wins, & the delights!
