The Right Tools for Teamwork

The changing workplace poses real challenges for employees of all roles and responsibilities. These dramatic shifts—in the number, type, and geographical distribution of teams—require that employees possess a certain interpersonal skillset for effective teamwork, one that they can bring to any team they’re a part of. The problem, though, is that the behaviors within this skillset can be difficult to recognize, let alone adopt.

Another issue is that most individuals are either unaware or unable to consistently practice the behaviors that will ensure team success. This is primarily because employees see teamwork as something that comes naturally to them, and they don’t view teamwork as something they need to learn. In fact 99% of respondents consider themselves “good” and “effective” team members.

Employees know teamwork matters, and they know what it looks like. But organizations are focusing on the wrong tools to address the skill gap. Let’s fix that. Check out The Five Behaviors® products here, and as an Authorized Partner, we’re here to support you through it: MDR: The Five Behaviors

Embracing and Democratizing Regular Recognition

Don’t underestimate the power of recognition! Do we get up and go to work each day just for a paycheck? Recent research suggests we don’t.

If you’re looking for an easy way to motivate employees and boost engagement, start with recognition. But don’t make recognition one directional. Make recognizing achievements everyone’s responsibility. The entire responsibility cannot fall on leaders and managers alone. Everyone can take it upon themselves to recognize their co-workers for a job well done. Praise from executives lets employees know how their work contributes to the overall goals of the organization. But since we work closely with our everyday coworkers, praise from them means a lot too.

Besides democratizing recognition, what are some other ways to do recognition right? Reach out to us for your copy of PXT Select’s eBook “Leading With Confidence: Top Ten Tips Managers Need to Drive Success”.

Lower Employee Stress By Listening

Wiley surveyed 4,500 working professionals from a variety of industries in July 2021 to find out what organizations can do to help employees maintain a healthy balance and lower their stress levels.

58% of people surveyed currently experience the benefit of having regular listening sessions with leaders. When leaders reach out and listen, people report feeling less stressed. Team members want to feel heard and acknowledged for their unique needs and contributions and will, in turn, be more committed to their work. We can all agree it makes a big difference when we feel the leaders in our organization care about what happens to us and invest time into making our work life better. Although listening sessions can be time consuming, they send a clear signal to your employees that you value them.

Leaders, are you prioritizing time to listen?

• Holds one another accountable
• Has more fun—and delivers results!

A Leadership Tip from PXT Select: Vision

There’s no greater leadership responsibility than being able to craft and cast a compelling vision for your organization. And though crafting a vision isn’t easy, when it comes to leadership, only one “vision question” really counts—are you actively pursuing your vision?

Leadership mentor John Maxwell said that a leader “knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way,” and that “people buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.”

Do you have a vision? Do your colleagues and employees know what it is, and do they believe in it? Do they believe in your ability to get them there?

Create a vision for the future that your employees can’t wait to get to. You’ll be setting an example that people can’t resist following. This is what being a great leader looks like.
