‘If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’
The benefits of employee engagement are our focus as we navigate through this decade of work where there has been an enormous amount of change, conflict and disharmony.
We emerge to a place where how we work and interact with each other is key to maximising our team potential.
How we engage, energise and inspire employees to work together as one team will be pivotal for the years ahead.
Creating team engagement in how we connect, express and build relationships with others is a fundamental skill that will underpin every business interaction, whether working in the virtual, hybrid or actual workspace.
We all have a role to play in this.
How we focus on maximising team potential with team engagement tools that make a difference will be down to how you, as the leader, create the environment for the benefits of employee engagement to work.
Taking time to recognise what each person brings to the team and remember that, regardless of our job titles, we are all part of the same team will be a crucial benefit that reinforces the importance of teamwork.
So how can we do this? It’s about going back to the basics of understanding who we are now, how we collaborate together, what it means for our team to be successful and creating clarity and knowledge that will give us the professional edge.
If we get it right – the benefits of employee engagement become evident, and everyone will want to be working as a team for you.
Each person has an enormous amount of knowledge and expertise, with diverse thoughts and opinions, which are to be embraced to enhance and reinforce the importance of teamwork.
Together we can achieve so much more. No one person is an island, and it’s each of our responsibilities to encourage collaboration, care and camaraderie among the team.
Taking time out together as a team will further encourage great teamwork.
We must find ways to ensure that the team reset, reunite and re-energises so they can focus on what’s ahead.
This is essential during times of transformation and changes, with the traditional parameters of teamwork being turned upside down. We must connect everyone to the moments that matter with vision, purpose and an unwavering sense of belonging.
Great teamship is key to achieving an engaged, inspired team.
There is no doubt about it; we live in extraordinary times, creating conditions that require extraordinarily agile, confident and proactive teamwork. There is no room for disharmony or conflict.
We have to find ways in which we can support conflict resolution before it becomes irretrievable.
Teamwork is more than just an organisation chart – it’s an attitude, an energy and a determination to build a path ahead together. Knowing how to get the best out of each other is just the start.
We all thrive when we know that we belong to something – be it a team, a community, or a family and the positive impact it has when teams are given the opportunity to support, learn and strengthen bonds to thrive is central to employee engagement.
So understanding the team’s purpose and values (as well as our own) will enable us to explore how best to work together to create clarity on moving an engaged workforce forward, with accountability, trust and empowerment invaluable team skills.
