As we bring our Connect team closer together and boost productivity, we focus on a few key areas. If you want to put a winning team on the field every day, our leaders encourage you to keep the following things in the front of your mind.
Diversity is one thing you need to celebrate as you unify your team. Make a practice of listening to your people’s divergent views, and encourage them to vocalize their unique ideas whenever they get the chance. If you have team members with widely differing work styles and backgrounds, make the most of these attributes to the benefit of your company.
Social awareness is another trait we at Connect work hard to build throughout our team. If you bring your people together to help good causes, the positive effects spread well beyond the people and organizations you support. You will inspire stronger teamwork and improved morale every time you give back as a group.
When your team members collaborate on big projects, encourage them to maximize their unique individual talents along the way. While you want your people to fuse their skills, it’s also important to keep each member motivated by appealing to his or her top strengths.
We hope you put these tips to good use, and that you visit connectdfw.com for more team-building advice from Connect’s leaders.
