What is the secret sauce when it comes to productivity? We asked four leading entrepreneurs.
I’ve found that the most important factor in team productivity is alignment with one common mission, and it’s the job of organisational leaders to constantly communicate what that is, recognising when milestones are reached and rewarding individual and team efforts along the way. Goals can change over time, but as long as everybody is engaged in what is and why it’s important, then productivity will boom. With the whole team pulling in the same direction there no need for micromanagement and team members can act autonomously, meaning speedier decision making, and a greater sense of fulfilment and achievement. In this environment engagement levels are high and the knock-on effect is even further productivity.
