Positive attitude is the basic requirement for any organization to handle challenges and produce first-rate output. Any team must be extremely attentive and flexible while executing assignments and managing changes. Interdepartmental connection is also crucial in this respect. This article aims at explaining how to create stress-defiant workforce.
Eliminating unnecessary stress factors
It is important that team leaders identify the issues that might cause distress and disturbance among employees. These issues will vary from one organization to the other. The best way to do this is simply talk to employees about it. When employees are compelled to waste time and energy on management hassles or other intrusions, it severely hampers innovation and advancement. Eradicating these will get the best out of employees.
Communication and connection
Whenever employees are not adequately informed about the activities in progress, they are bound to fail and falter at providing effective solutions and measures. When employees are conscious and aware about situations, no matter how critical, they feel more relaxed and attentive. Termed as “perceived control”, the awareness of circumstances provokes responsible actions. The team consequently becomes well-knit and flexible.
Maintaining focus when times are tough
Any team can function fine when the weather is calm and fair. It is during trying times that capabilities and motivations are tested. Supervisors must inspire and instigate employees so that they do not lose focus and deviate from their goals. An enduring vision of future prosperity can pull teams through when nothing seems to work. This can be done by sharing success stories and notes of appreciation through meetings, newsletters or even general conversations.
Grooming employees for success
It is of utmost importance for employees to be equipped with sufficient tools, training and resources to succeed at tasks. Supervisors are responsible for providing such opportunities to employees up to a large extent. This will not only facilitate innovation and productivity but will create an atmosphere where employees would not fear to take up new challenges. It is also important to assign the right tasks to the right people.
When success is appreciated and celebrated, it not only generates positive ambience but the employees feel that they are part and parcel of a successful team and contributing towards the success. It is a huge morale booster especially when team had to face severe trials and tribulations.
