In their book “No Excuses:

Sure, as a manager you
are busy. You have to worry about your own workload plus the additional workload of managing your team(s).
But, the truth is that
for the best managers out there, NOT HAVING ENOUGH TIME TO COMPLETE TASKS JUST ISN’T AN EXCUSE.
These managers understand that while
it’s important to do things, like set up initiatives, finish projects and make decisions, THERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT CORE RELATIONSHIPS THAT SHOULD COME FIRST.
Don’t use this as the
excuse. Instead, recognize that there are managers out there, all of whom are just as busy as you, that have successfully created great workplace environments while balancing all of their other responsibilities. IF THEY CAN DO IT, SO CAN YOU. PLANNER
Each team member is different.
When someone experiences success, recognize and highlight how their unique talents led to that success. HELP THEM SEE HOW THEIR SUCCESS BENEFITS OTHER TEAM MEMBERS, CLIENTS, AND THE COMMUNITY. t hank you! CLICK HERE to see additional employee recognition ideas.
IMPRESSIONS MADE ON DAY ONE
OR BEFORE ARE EVERLASTING. Make sure you reach out and connect to your new hires before they even start. Send them a welcome card, signed by the whole team. Connect them with a mentor to help them through their critical first year. Pause and celebrate key milestones at the 30, 60, and 90 day mark—highlighting their early successes. CLICK HERE and see no. 3 of this article for more on talent.
YOUR TEAM MEMBERS NEED TO
UNDERSTAND THAT THE WORK THEY DO MATTERS. You should show them how it matters in the real world, but first, you should show them how the work they do helps other departments in the company. Invite a guest from a different department within the company to talk about their job, and how the work your team does makes their work day a whole lot easier.
After you’ve helped your employees
understand the impact of their work internally, show them how their efforts make a difference outside of the office. Get feedback firsthand from your clients: what resonates and works? What could be improved upon? THIS WILL REINFORCE YOUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR CLIENTS AND SHOW YOUR TEAM HOW THEIR WORK MATTERS.
TRY THESE FIVE SUGGESTIONS OUT
AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. The real key is that you always think about new ways to continually improve trust, pride, and camaraderie.
ULTIMATELY, you will join the
ranks of those managers who have figured out that the “I don’t have time” excuse really does nothing more than keep them and their team members from enjoying the great workplace that could be theirs.
