Your business is your baby and like any parent you want and need feedback from the team about how the baby is doing. Too often the advisor delegates to team members and then worries about whether or not the actions have been executed. This lack of communication is a major cause of team dysfunction.
To increase team productivity meet with each team member weekly for 15-minutes with the following agenda:
1. Feedback - 5-minutes the team member gives feedback on previous delegations
2. Delegation - 5-minutes the boss delegates any new tasks or projects
3. Acceptance - 5-minutes both agree and reprioitize the team member's tasks
This simple 15-minutes weekly meeting will eliminate the excessive workload many team members face and will also remove the anxiety of many managers concerning delegations.
15-minutes a week can transform your team.
