Setting your team up for success doesn’t happen overnight.
It’s a daily occurrence of the team working together and being clear about the goals you want to accomplish.
A manager or owner of a business is motivated to see the business succeed.
Other people that work within the business may not be as motivated or driven like you, and that’s ok, but it doesn’t mean they don’t want to do a good job.
As a leader, it’s your role to manage and guide and your team so they are motivated and productive in their roles.
What are you doing to make sure your team is fired up and ready to go?
Does your team have the correct information and tools to do a good job? Or are they set up to do a poor job?
A sports team does not show up to play and expect to win games if the coach has not set the expectations for the team. Sure the goal is winning but there is so much behind winning the game. Ultimately the team needs to work together towards accomplishing the goal.
I work across many venues and restaurants across the hospitality industry. We teach their leaders to gather the team before each shift starts to check in and see how the team is going.
We don’t know what is going on their lives but we can check-in and see how they are going and set the expectations before they start serving.
Setting your team up to succeed starts by asking these 4 key questions:
- What are the goals you want to achieve today
- What are you going to do to achieve those goals?
- What are you going to do to deliver a 10 out of 10?
- Are you fired up and ready to go?
Asking these questions gets your people ready and in the right mindset to serve.
For many of my clients, their teams cannot start their shift without asking these 4 key questions. Their staff say they find it beneficial to be set up and ready to go, they have the correct tools to perform their roles successfully and are clear about the goals to be achieved.
Give it a try. I’d love to know how this works in your teams or if you do something similar.
