Be your team’s growth navigator
Yes, I’m talking to you.
As a team leader, we know you are always looking for ways to increase productivity, raise your employee retention rate, and accomplish the team’s tasks and projects in an organized manner.
To accomplish such a feat to the best of your ability, you have to be more than a team leader, you have to be your team’s growth navigator.
What is a growth navigator?
The person running the show, and ascertaining the team is maintaining an accurate trajectory toward the desired destination - all the while ensuring hazards are avoided.
This is you.
You are the aircraft captain, and your team members are your crew.
In order for things to run smoothly as you travel through the frequently intimidating galaxy of deadlines and time limits, there are a few technological upgrades your aircraft requires.
Let’s talk onboarding.
The onboarding process is of utmost importance within any organization, and is often underrated. Just as it is imperative that a newly assigned aircraft crew-member be fully assimilated into the unit to ensure the safety of everyone onboard, so too must a new employee be properly accommodated into the organization’s team to ensure the maximization of potential and productivity.
A broken onboarding process breeds disengaged and unsatisfied employees.
Whether it be lack of guidance and support from the team leader, or lack of proper instruction and explanation, the employee feels lost.
You can’t fly an aircraft if the newly hired Operations Officer is disengaged - well, we suppose you can, but you’re in for a bumpy ride.
As such, an employee who has not undergone a formal onboarding process cannot contribute his or her full potential to the team, and thus the team will run less smoothly.
We know you don’t want to take that risk.
As we go through some of the possible “malfunctions” a team can face, let us address the crucial issue of skill development.
Employees need to feel they have a place to grow and evolve within their organization. Providing your employees with the freedom and ability to develop new skills or further hone existing ones is the long sought-after elixir for employee satisfaction and commitment to the organization. An employee who has been given the opportunity and tools for skill advancement feels that they are able to make a true impact within the organization, in turn leading to increased motivation, productivity levels, and retention.
So, going back to being your team’s growth navigator, we understand that you have an aircraft to fly and these additional responsibilities such as improving your onboarding process and providing your employees with tools for skill development can be overwhelming.
Not to worry, you may be the team leader, but you are not alone.
Just as the captain of an aircraft uses the help of a GPS and communications systems to navigate the vast cosmos, so too must a team leader use the help of a platform to provide it with the organizational ability to run a smooth onboarding process, as well as the tools needed to assist employee skill development.
