Intentional workplace culture and the development of high-performance teams are doable if the process is not overly complicated. Success is inevitable when strategy is executed through PEOPLE. Leaders who embrace the people factor before numbers experience a workforce who understand their value and contributions to the organization’s purpose.
It is essential to have a key translator who can interpret the big picture priorities and lead the engagement of the hearts, heads, and hands of employees. If every operational level of the company understands how they contribute to the purpose, vision, and priorities, a deeper sense of purpose is realized. This turns the momentum of the flywheel while preserving the core and stimulating progress. With intentional action, staff realize they are the #1 factor in sustained success. Staff understanding the goals and their role in contributing to the achievement of them is one-half of the equation for success.
Mobilizing teams toward action is most productive in a culture of mutual respect. If cultivated and fostered at every level, a human factor bond results that fuels teams and performance. Trained staff with the skills to read a person’s behavioral tendencies right the first time and knowing how best to interact, increases engagement and trust. How would this kind of insight impact daily actions/interactions in both internal and external environments?
