Shaping your team into the department of your dreams requires hard work. This type of work isn’t easy. It forces you to change the way you do things as well as the way you think. Leading from better to best is a concept talked about in many self-help books. Essentially, this concept centers on transforming your team into an efficient group by following a few key steps.
Be Inspiring and Motivate
One of the first steps to greatness is motivation. Each team member should know, understand and be proud of their role. With this attitude, they’ll work to the best of their ability to complete tasks.
It’s the leader’s job to shape a culture that promotes inspiration. Leaders do this through positive reinforcement and incentives like promotions and raises. They also work hard to hire competent managers that understand how to build a productive team.
Developing a culture of discipline
In healthcare, the culture must also include some level of discipline. It’s fine for team members to laugh and enjoy each other, but they must know when to buckle down and work hard. A successful leader encourages discipline by streamlining systems and clearly defining roles. Each team also has goals they must meet. Management also makes sure employees have the tools and knowledge needed to meet these goals. By inspiring and motivating team members, leaders can ensure that employees stay disciplined.
There’s a small difference between good and great
Good means the team is doing well, meets the majority of its goals and employees perform well. Great means everyone exceeds expectations. Small differences will shift the tide from good to great. All it requires a more disciplined mindset and targeted approach.
