The productivity of your team depends on the processes, the tools and the techniques they use. Whenever you find that your team is not delivering the effort that it is supposed to deliver, then your stress levels increase as you get pressurized from the higher-level management and your team gets pressurized as well.
There comes a situation where you are trying to help your team and nothing changes and the productivity of the team goes down day by day. Then you need to look upon the processes, the tools and the techniques that are being used and find a way to increase them.
Below are the steps one can follow to improve the team’s productivity:
Set accountability system:
Set an accountability system for your team. You will find that the team will work harder than before and you can find that there is an increase in productivity.
Make standards for communication:
Know what to communicate, whom to communicate and when to communicate. Communication is very important and it has to be done at the right time. One cannot mitigate the issue without proper communication.
Collaborate with the team:
Don’t underestimate the benefits of collaboration. Collaboration generates numerous ideas and those can be used in increasing the processes.
Improvements in Meetings:
Improve the way of running the meetings. Only invite those who need to be involved. Don’t overpopulate the meetings and never deviate the meeting goal. Speak to the point and ask goal-oriented questions and try to avoid wasting time.
Don’t force your employees to work continuously for long hours. Nobody can work for long continuous hours as their brains also won’t support working long hours. Let the team take short breaks to get refreshed.
Always provide training to your team so that they cannot miss the updates and brush up their skills and work productively.
Praise their work:
Never let your employees confidence down. Always praise their work as appreciation motivates them to work in a competitive way.
