The New Year is just around the corner, and it is time (once again) to make a list of resolutions. Regardless of how successful your business has been over the past 12 months, there is always room for improvement.
To help your company function more productively in 2020, 191 Works, a leader in virtual office solutions and meeting room rentals, suggests adopting these goals:For the Management
Look in the Mirror – The leaders of your company should set the tone for the kind of culture you want to have in your organization. The management should walk the talk to establish credibility. Even when it comes to policies that primarily concern the rank and file, the higher-ups should always strive to set a good example.
Remove “I” From Your Organization’s Alphabet – Unless you run a one-person organization, promote teamwork. A successful team may have a designated leader, but everyone should be a team player.
Create a Marketplace of Ideas – Whether your team operates out of an hourly office rental or is primarily composed of remote workers, make your organization a safe space for ideas. You hired smart people, after all. Give everyone the freedom to speak their minds, and create an environment where everyone is heard.For the Team
Communicate More – Talking with each other is not time theft. Empower your employees to speak up and address problems that could negatively affect the team’s productivity.
Quit the Blame Game – Make your team members accountable for their actions, but, at the same time, recognize their achievements.
Eat Together – End the tradition of eating in a conference room rental. Desk lunches and dinners are sad and do not foster camaraderie. Instead, encourage your employees to have meals together. Consider initiating corporate lunch catering (at least occasionally) as a form of team building.
