Three Things We Learned From This Episode
- Have genuine interest
It’s vital that you take a genuine interest in the individuals on your team. Pay attention to what’s going on in your team members’ lives and let them know you care. It’s important to approach this seriously and from a place of authenticity.
- Encourage vulnerability
The great thing about family is that it allows you to be completely vulnerable. Aim to create a family environment on your team where vulnerability is the norm. This can be fostered through zoom calls that force everyone to be on camera. The important thing is to create an inclusive space that allows everyone to be comfortable.
- Cut out the cancer
If there are people on your team not contributing to a great company culture, remove them from the team. This is often difficult because that same individual may be the top producer on your team, but the reality is that negative influences have to be removed to create a positive environment.
Never underestimate the power of positivity on your team. We’ve all heard the cliche that business and pleasure should be separate, but productivity relies heavily on happiness. Create a team culture where people are excited to come to work. Foster an environment that makes people happy. Team culture dictates your level of success
