How to Dramatically Increase Productivity (You & Your Staff)
Do you want to dramatically increase the productivity of your team, be it your staff, your outsourcers or even your admin staff? In this episode, Rob shares with you 14 tried and tested ways to increase productivity, improve morale, earn more money and how you can dramatically scale your business when you and your staff are productive.
Have a clear job description. This should include the vision and values of the company at the top, the main outcome of their role to the top line, the key result areas, the income-generating tasks and other roles and responsibilities.
Know your key result areas. This is an area of focus that is vital to the growth or at least the delivery of your role. Depending on your role it can be income-generating or income-generating or simply strategic, tactical or administrative.
Roles, responsibilities and MSOPs. Each team member needs a minimum standard of performance, which is linked to the key result areas, job description, and income-generating tasks. These are key metrics that your team have to do just to keep their job.
Culture, environment and atmosphere. Are they conducive to productivity, energy, enthusiasm, passion, drive, commitment, loyalty, getting things done, hitting targets and deadlines and continual and never-ending improvement?
Projects, not tasks. Give projects to people, not just tasks. No one wants to feel like they're your admin guy even if their job is admin. Make them feel just as important as leaders by giving them some projects.
Try not to have any ceiling on progression and earning capacity. If your staff hit career ceilings they're probably going to look for another job because they can't progress. After all, progression is a human need.
The balance of autonomy and management. No one likes to be micromanaged except very hardcore, process-driven thinkers who just want to be told what to do. Most people like a bit of autonomy, freedom, leadership, responsibility and ownership, but they still need guidance management, not over management.
Rewards, progression and recognition. The three things that people need in a career that probably are more important than money and might equate to you not having to pay as much salary pound for pound are PRA, progression, recognition and autonomy.
“Don't just do a job description for your team, but do it for yourself too.”
“What key result areas do is, they give you an overriding guidance and focus.”
“No two tasks have the same amount of value to you.”
“Where there's clarity, there's no confusion.”
“We all have a role to play.”
“We all equal but do different things.”
“If you want to be successful, hire smart people, give them slightly too much to do and get out of their way.”
“People learn the best when they get the lessons themselves.”
“Leadership is creating a vision and inspiring people to move towards that vision, and then allowing them to fulfil their role towards that vision.”
