Does that sounds familiar?
- You are happy with your people, one by one, but you also know that really working together for common results can be a issue for them; you are not happy that profits and growth opportunities are missed because they would rather act on their own.
- You notice that the team members do not know each other’s strengths and therefore they , for example, miss getting a better deal.
- Differences of opinion are too often “fought out” and not “talked out” and you have to get involved .
- Disagreements are usually about the same small things and they spoil the atmosphere in the office, which doesn’t help motivation and you feel that it’s all up to you to get the mood back in order and sometimes you really are tired of that.
- Sometimes you feel like a school master who has to repeat the simplest things to get stuff done. It seems sometimes that people are too stubborn to listen.
How would it feel for you if
- You got more confidence in achieving goals and targets because people worked as a real team?
- You did not have to be a referee as team members could talk out their differences?
- You din’t have to be a school master due to improved communication, mutual support and motivation.
- You got rid of sick leave and staff turnover problems as the atmosphere in the office is pleasant and people enjoy coming to work.
