Motivate the team
What would you like to see in your team?
Employees who use their knowledge and skills independently.Team members who use each other’s strengths optimally and absorb each other’s pitfalls in a sporting manner. Team members and teams who seek each other out as powerful allies to achieve results. Teams who make knowledge transfer and professional development part of their daily work.
You and your team need to handle change; Be motivated to change and to support each othe during that change.
As a Teamgrowing coach, you can motivate your team and your organization, and help them achieve their goals!
Resistance: do not deal with it
Change in an organization often comes with resistance.
Learn not to deal with it. Instead, learn to listen empathically and strengthen the positive desire to change. Find and encourage the intrinsic motivation. Because resistance often hides ambivalence: part of us wants the change. But when we are pushed, we resist. Think New Year Good Intentions, already shattered a couple of weeks later.
That is where you can help, as a Teamgrowing coach.
