Team Leader Trust Builder #1 : Leverage People's Strengths
As we have explored in other posts, we know that team productivity gets increased when their leaders focus on strengths.
A significant part of the work I do as a team coach is around strengths, and team leaders often prefer to bring in an external facilitator such as myself to spark the conversation so they can participate in the conversation themselves. Drawing from a variety of strengths-based assessments, it is useful for team members to know their strengths both individually and collectively.
As a team leader consider:
What are the strengths that exist on the team? Individually? Collectively?
How does each person get to utilize their strengths in their work?
Where is it not being capitalized?
What would happen to motivation if people were able to use their strengths more often?
