The degree to which you can empower a team is determined by the level of resolve that exists amongst team members.
This was a realization I had several years ago when working with a team shifting them from a team lead by several managers, to a team that had no managers and was “self-managed”. Although I’ve been doing this kind of work for many years, I recognized early on that the degree to which a team is successful in becoming self-managed is determined by the level of resolve that exists within each individual team member. This is why I always begin my work by conducting individual interviews amongst team members, allowing for the determination as to the degree of resolve each employee holds.
[Tweet “Each individual has a different level of resolve and resilience that will let them become empowered.”]
Whether you are trying to build a self-managed team, or you simply want your team to take on more responsibility and accountability for what they are doing, step one is always to assess individual resolve.
I literally threw together this brief video to outline some key steps you will need to take in order to make this happen… Specifically I’ll share:
- Why the extent to which each of your employees has resolve will determine the success of your team
- Examples of how to build resolve over time and measure progress
- The importance of regular check-ins with employees, and how this must be catered to meet individual needs.
- Ideas on how to broaden the perspective of your employees
What ideas can you take from this video and apply right now?
I want to hear from you. Email me and let me know your success stories (and struggles) in building resolve and I’ll pick one of your issues to discuss on our next video.
