TALK TO EACH OTHER

Most peo­ple want to know if they are on the right track. Reg­u­lar feed­back opens up com­mu­ni­ca­tions and al­lows in­for­ma­tion to flow freely.

DE­CIDE TO­GETHER

Em­power the team to make de­ci­sions on their own work and work pro­duced to­gether. It will give a greater sense of job ac­com­plish­ment and sat­is­fac­tion.

TAKE FIVE IN THE MORN­ING

Meet as a team for five min­utes in the morn­ing to dis­cuss cru­cial re­sults to be achieved that day. It will pro­vide each mem­ber with clar­i­fi­ca­tion on po­ten­tially un­clear points and clear di­rec­tion for the day.

DO ONE THING AT A TIME

Avoid multi-task­ing. Con­stant in­ter­rup­tions cre­ate stress and cog­ni­tive over­load. One task at a time max­imises re­sources and en­ergy.

FLOAT IDEAS

Great ideas can come from any­where and ev­ery­where. Reg­u­larly speak­ing about where the com­pany is and where it should be in­creases peo­ple’s con­fi­dence in their abil­ity to pro­vide valu­able in­sights for the or­gan­i­sa­tion to act on.
