There’s an I In Team

Modern teams are different. Employees have a voice and want it heard; they want work that gives them meaning, not just money; they want mentoring, not just training; and they want to express their individuality and bring their unique skills into the workplace.

I covered this topic recently in a webinar, which had these key takeaways:

  • What leading organisations around the world are doing to get and keep the best people
  • How to motivate team members without money or other external recognition
  • How to fast-track learning without sending them on training courses
  • How to increase your team’s productivity and performance immediately

After the webinar, I asked participants “What was the most useful thing you learned today?” Here are some of their answers:

“6 key points what teams are looking for”

“Ways to motivate team members”

“The results on what employees want in their roles and from their leaders”

“Employees list of wants from job”

“Three main aspects of motivation: mastery, autonomy and purpose”

“Research into current employee needs from Harvard”

“The review of the differences between what teams are looking for now and a generation ago. “

“Individuals make a Team…. but its a relay race not a sprint”

“Getting the balance right between ‘control’ and ‘good judgement’. I am a big fan of ‘systems’ and in some cases ‘tight systems’ but also realise that people need freedom to be innovate and be creative and find new ways. One way to get the balance right might be the Google way – give people blocks of time to innovate and create!”

“Structuring a remote team of skills and inputs”

The Future Proof Webinar Series

The Future Proof webinar series will keep you in touch with our future – what’s ahead, what it means for us, and how to stay ahead of the game.

In each webinar, I’ll cover an important topic about the future – for example, the shift of power to Asia, the changing workplace, healthcare technology, the shift to customer-centric business, big data, and more. This is not just theory; I’ll also give you practical examples and ideas for you to future-proof your organisation, teams, and career.
