Developing a team is essential for any organization to succeed. Managers should create a culture of learning and sharing, delegate tasks, provide consistent feedback, and invest time in training their team. Additionally, they should use project management software to help everyone stay organized and efficient. Members of the Forbes Nonprofit Organizations Council share strategies for managers looking to develop their team's skills. One of the main functions of a manager is to ensure that the team always learns the skills it needs to keep the business moving and evolving.
To do this, managers should bring a group of people together to work on any project and they will develop their own culture that will be as unique as the people in the group. On the other hand, poor management of digital communication for teams reduces employee morale and productivity. To keep everyone informed of changes and updates, managers can use a comment tracker or an administration platform designed to assign different tasks and account for the team's KPIs. Furthermore, managers should contribute external resources to their team to continuously train them. Values are an important part of any team or company.
Managers should ensure that their team is guided by their stated values, rather than just following the rules of the game. This will help create an environment where people are rewarded for their behavior that aligns with established values. To help develop and maintain the skills of their team, managers should establish a clear vision that highlights short- and long-term objectives for projects, teams and the organization in general. They should also delegate tasks, provide consistent feedback, and invest time on a regular basis to personally train their team. Additionally, managers can use project management software to help everyone stay efficient and organized. Managers should empower their team to make intelligent decisions and ensure that the team is guided by their stated values.
To keep their team's skills up to date in a rapidly changing world, managers can create a culture of learning and sharing. A Gallup survey revealed that an “unmanageable workload” is the second most important factor that employees report being exhausted. By following these strategies from nonprofit experts, managers can develop their team's skills and create an environment where everyone is motivated to succeed.
