5 ways to manage the growing demands of your team

How are things going on your team?

Would you consider your team to be high-performing?

To be honest, most leaders struggle to develop a high-performing team.


Well, there are a lot of expectations placed on leaders these days.

Not only are you expected to achieve your business goals, but you are also expected to manage the growing demands of your team.

Plus, most leaders don’t know HOW to build and motivate their team.

So, today, I have a couple of great resources for you.

First, I’ll share the 5 leadership skills that are critical to managing your team’s growing demands.

Secondly, look for the link below to download a FREE workbook. In it, you’ll learn practical ways to apply these 5 strategies immediately on the job.

Here are the 5 leadership skills that are critical to managing the growing demands of your team: They include:

  1. Being self-aware. Without self-awareness, you don’t understand how your behaviour impacts the people around you. For example, you might view yourself as “detail-oriented,” but your team might view you as a micromanager! The goal is to be aware of your strengths and weaknesses! This will allow you to leverage your strengths and minimize your weaknesses so that they don’t impact your effectiveness.
  2. Having a growth mindset. Your mindset is essentially your thoughts. Negative thoughts will increase your stress level and limit your ability to perform effectively as a leader. So, it’s really important for you to have a positive mindset. This includes a “growth” mindset, which is the belief that any skill can be developed with hard work. For example, if you make a mistake, stay in that positive, growth mindset zone. Instead of being hard on yourself, ask, “What can I learn from this mistake to be better next time?”
  3. Coaching your people. Coaching is a critical skill required at all levels of leadership. It can develop your team, allow you to be a sounding board for your people, and help your people brainstorm ideas and solve their own problems.
  4. Managing Change. It is normal for people to resist change. Why? Well, the change that you are implementing will likely affect their job and how they work. Plus, humans are programmed not to change. We crave consistency. Don’t ever underestimate the impact that change has on people.  Rather, learn to communicate your team changes effectively. Take the time to explain how the change will impact each person on your team individually. Then, give them the time and space to process the change so they can eventually embrace the new beginnings that each change brings.
  5. Setting Clear Goals and Priorities. Have you ever wondered how you can be more focused and productive each day? The key is to be clear on your goals and priorities. Each month, consider the three things that you must accomplish to be successful. Then, ensure that you focus most of your time on those critical goals. Keep yourself focussed. That is one key way to maintain a high level of productivity.

If you hope to manage your team more effectively, start developing these five areas.

It’s hard to focus on all five of these skills at once, so pick one area and start there.
