The Issue.

Our chickens at Star Ranch continue to be eggstipated. ONE chicken is doing all the work and the others are just running around clucking.

Does this remind you of your office dynamics? Everyone looks busy while only a few make the eggs happen.

The Change Agent.

So we bought more chickens (since our last blog about this eggistential crisis) that have resulted in a chicken brawl. Everyone is vying for power; but, alas, no egg production. There really is a pecking order.

The Solution.

Sometimes your organization may seem like a brood of chickens running around clucking and pecking without purpose, goals and direction. Here are four ways to transform your teams.

  1. Define. As leaders, you must define and articulate what makes for success. What are your goals? What do you expect from your EVPs, different business units, supply chain? Think, strategize and communicate your vision clearly.
  2. Listen. Information talks and wisdom listens. If your teams are underperforming, ask questions. Then, shut up and listen. Discern the nuance.
  3. Align. Effective teams are aligned on values and foundation that share a common mission. Your goal is to create teams with trusted relationships.
  4. Accountability. Metrics to use for accountability can include Checkpoint 360®, ProfileXT®, and Everything DiSC®, and Speak For Yourself®’s leadership and team development training can facilitate with these performance tools. Click here to find out more.

Our goal for your organization is to improve your people and culture. And, to produce more eggs.
