Your Team Management Doesn’t Have to be Spooky

Blog located in Leadership posted on October 29, 2014

Halloween is the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead. Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, decorating, and carving pumpkins. It’s also about bringing a community together around the same goals: fun and laughter.

You can make it spooky, but it doesn’t have to be. The same thing applies to team management.

It’s All about Trust

Trust is imperative in any team exercise. The kids have to trust the adults with the candies given to them. Likewise, an effective team manager needs to trust his or her team and the team members need to trust each other. This works best when the leader commits to the vision first, setting the example for everyone else.

With Trust comes Inclusion

Of course, with trust comes inclusion. When everyone feels included, they are more engaged and willing to work together. The children playing the spooky party game are all in it together. Add that feeling to the hype and thrill, and they are able to get their friends off the ground.

 With Inclusion comes Motivation

A leader mustmotivate his or her team on a regular basis. Appreciation is a must. When team members have performed extraordinarily, do give them a pat on the back. Performance appraisals, perks, incentives, trophies, prizes are all instrumental in motivating team members to perform even better the next time.

Sure, managing a team can be a little scary at times, but knowing what it takes and learning how to effectively manage one can make the whole thing look like child’s play. Get your vision off the ground by leading your team to success. This thinking  and vision of a greater goal works in many aspects of teamwork, and can be a useful trick in effective team management.
