How To Keep Your Team Engaged
It will stay on just for a few moments then it will begin to slowly fade to black.
Your team is the same way. The key to keeping your team plugged in is by keeping them engaged.
Team Training Techniques
Over the past decade I have learned many team training techniques and how to manage large team. I have discovered what works and what doesn’t. The biggest thing I have learned is how to keep your team engaged. Not only keeping them engaged within the company, but also with each other.
Team Engagement = Team Communication
Good team engagement begins with solid daily communication.
- Talk To Your Leaders Every Morning
Community within a team is paramount. Your team knows you as a leader but do they know each other? Are they interacting with each other? There are several different things you can do to keep everyone engaged.
- Host Weekly Team Calls
Each week schedule a guest speaker with a new golden nugget, an announcement and a weekly incentive. I have found that by breaking the month up by week to week business, it seems to keep the team engaged, working and striving to end the week, rather than the month, strong. When they end the week strong, the month will end strong.
- Create a private Facebook
Group for your team and encourage each other to post success stories and share ideas. Encourage everyone to befriend each other.
- Create side line buddies
I have found that when sideline leaders and even non-leaders become buddies, the success that follows each other seems to be tenfold. I have had the honor of leading a dynamic local team that all supports each other daily. They do this by communicating every day and many of them even go as far as attending other teammate’s parties, sharing testimonies and assist in closing the party presentation.
Keep Your Team Plugged In
If you are reading this and you feel that this is different than the way your team operates, I completely understand.
Not all team mates will stay plugged in, however the ones who do will be the ones that will thrive and will teach this culture to their own team. It’s never too late to start a new team culture or a new goal to create a new outcome.
