4 Tips to Help Your Organization Deliver Results

By Mark Shore | Oct 24, 2011

 

As a small business owner, it’s your responsibility to get the most out of your employees that you possibly can. You could be blessed with a team of workers that already go above and beyond the call to deliver great results, but this is not always the case. Sometimes you have to be a leader and provide the extra motivation to help your organization deliver the results you want.

  1. Create an environment with strict deadlines

    Deadlines should be seen as non-negotiable. As a strong leader you need to foster an environment where your employees know that they need to get assignments done on time with pristine care. Creating more firm deadlines will force people to create a thorough plan of action before they begin working on a project. If there is too much leeway on when work needs to be submitted then this allows employees to take their time and dive into projects without having a solid plan of how they will attack them. Be strict when you have to and let employees know that getting work done past the deadline is not acceptable.

  2. Hold other managers accountable for their team’s success

    Sometimes in business, managers tend to point to a particular member of their team who is slacking and put the blame on them for work that doesn’t turn out the way it’s supposed to. In order to be a well-run organization it’s imperative that the senior leaders below you understand that it’s their responsibility to deliver the results you expect. It’s not simply their job to delegate responsibilities, but also to remain accountable throughout the entire process.

  3. Eliminate corporate barriers

    In order to get the results you want, make sure that all egos and personal relationships are held in check. Clearly define the goals of the organization and let your employees know that while you would like there to be a friendly environment in the office, meeting goals and objectives is the primary mission. There should be no one person that feels like they are above doing whatever type of work that needs to be done. In order to really drive this point home, you may have to do some of the lesser, more menial work in times of need to show that you are all part of a team trying to accomplish the same goals and deliver the best results.

  4. Constantly search for ways to increase productivity and efficiency

    Increasing productivity is always something you should strive for with your business. When productivity increases in the workplace, things get done a lot faster and the results are typically that much better.

Some other things to think about are training your employees to give them the necessary skills they need to deliver better results. This can include project management, business project management and conflict management. All of these abilities will lead your employees to work together more effectively and should make your entire business run more efficiently.
