The new year has arrived, and you have big plans for 2021. Yet, it is crucial to work with your team to determine what your business can accomplish this year.
Your goal as a manager in 2021: help your team maximize its potential. Fortunately, with the right approach, you can put your team in a position to thrive in 2021 and beyond.
Now, let’s look at eight things you can do to help your team accomplish its goals.
1. Learn About Your Team
Set up meetings with employees and learn about their career aspirations. Use these insights to help team members determine the steps they can take to achieve their career goals.
2. Share Your Goals
Let your team know what you want to accomplish in the foreseeable future. This allows you to set an example for your employees to share their goals with you.
3. Create SMART Goals
Ensure team goals are specific, measurable, assignable, realistic, and time-related (SMART). With SMART goals in place, your workers will know what they want to accomplish and the steps necessary to do so.
4. Show Your Team That You Care
Be available and accessible to your team. Let your employees know that they should contact you if they have concerns or questions. In doing so, team members can engage with you as they work toward achieving their personal and professional goals. At the same time, you can show your workers you care about them and want them to succeed.
5. Promote Teamwork
Encourage your employees to work together to achieve common goals. This fosters communication and collaboration among your workforce and can lead to increased productivity and efficiency across your team. Plus, it enables your workers to join forces, so they are well-equipped to accomplish their goals faster and more efficiently than they could on their own.
6. Establish Milestones
Track the progress of team goals at regular milestones. If your employees fall behind the pace in their efforts to accomplish their goals, brainstorm ways to help them accomplish their aspirations on schedule. If necessary, team members can modify their goals as well.
7. Serve As a Mentor
Give your team support as it works diligently to achieve its goals. There may be times when roadblocks arise that hamper an employee’s ability to accomplish their goals. In these instances, meet with a worker to discuss their concerns. You can then offer tips and recommendations to help an employee achieve their aspirations.
8. Stay the Course
Ensure workers stay the course as they work toward making their dreams come true. If team members consistently work toward achieving their goals, they can feel good about all that they accomplish every day.
