What’s the secret to keeping your team engaged, motivated and inspired?
Getting your team to constantly perform at their best can be a challenge.
When forming or joining a new team we all start out with the best intentions but often once we’ve hit a few road blocks along the way, things can start to get difficult, and that’s when…
- Productivity will plummet,
- Interpersonal conflicts arise,
- Sales and customer service will suffer,
- A negative “everyone for themselves” team culture creeps in.
Don’t let this happen to your team, your colleagues, or your business!
The best way to avoid these issues in any team environment is to find out what their drivers are (what gets them inspired). In order to do that you must first:
- Identify the unique communication styles of your team (how do they want to be spoken to and how do they process information from others),
- Understand their needs, their strengths and their stresses (what makes them tick),
- Be able to speak their ‘language’ and inspire action (by knowing how they want to be communicated with).
And a simple way to do this is by training yourself and your team in the art of communication – giving them the tools and skills to be able to understand each other better, communicate more effectively, and ultimately work smarter as a team.
Up-skilling your staff in the area of effective communication is good for your business and good for your team. With the right training you can improve business performance, profit and staff morale. Some of the advantages to your business include:
- Better customer service, better work practices and productivity improvements,
- Demonstrating to your team that you value them enough to invest in them, improving loyalty and staff retention. In turn, retention is a saving to you!
- They acquire new skills, increasing their contribution to the business and building their self-esteem,
- They’re up-skilled to do new and different tasks, which keeps them motivated, inspired and fresh.
As you know, a good company is seen as one that retrains rather than churns.
Therefore, by giving your staff the ability to communicate more effectively with your customers and with each other (something that doesn’t get taught in school or university), you will keep them engaged, motivated and inspired – a large return on a small investment (and little effort on your part).
If you would like to learn more about effective communication training solutions and a valuable course we recommend, read on… (if not, thanks for reading and I hope you found this useful!).
If you’re looking for practical, engaging and inspiring training for your team, we highly recommend the simple yet effective – DOTS™ Precognitive Communication Training.
The DOTS™ training we coach teams, individuals and companies in is an advanced skill that helps repair relationships, reduce stress and improve collaboration and productivity.
The DOTS™ training will:
➡️ Teach you and your team the science behind conversation,
➡️ Give you a language for connection,
➡️ Train you in the art of effective communication.
What is DOTS™ Communication Training?
DOTS™ is a simple and effective communication training solution that can be used by anyone, anytime.
The DOTS™ training teaches you about the four precognitive communication styles (we call them DOTS™ – Purple Dot, Yellow Dot, Red Dot and Blue Dot). You have all four styles within you, one of which is dominant throughout your life.
The objective of DOTS™ is to understand your combination of DOTS™ (your communication style) to enable you and your team to communicate more openly and effectively. It also teaches you how to predict someone else’s’ likely communication style (their DOTS™) by the way they are dressed, certain words they use etc.
Being able to spot someone’s DOTS™ gives you and your team an enormous ability to enhance your relationships and deepen your connections with those you work with and care about.
“The DOTS course is the most effective and long-lasting team engagement and communication course I have ever been involved with.” – Glen Hughes, South Island Regional Manager, Harrison Grierson.
Why implement DOTS™ into your team?
DOTS™ not only gives your employees the motivation and encouragement to effectively communicate with each other, your customers, and your clients, it also supports your management team in understanding the needs of their staff, their strengths, and how to get the best return on investment while keeping staff inspired and working hard.
