Team management & Employee Retention

Unlock the full potential of your team!

Employees are the driving force behind the success of every organization. When your people are in the right place and feel good, your customers are happy and your shareholders satisfied. And when your people grow, your organization will grow too. But, how do you ensure your employees are not only capable, but also happy, engaged and motivated intrinsically to perform and to collaborate at their best?

The traditional top-down model is losing ground fast. The current generation no longer wants to be squeezed into a hierarchical structure. Forging relationships that are not based on power becomes a key skill. The new manager engages and motivates with his staff to follow him voluntarily. Successful senior managers function more and more as ‘connectors’. Not only do they forge relationships externally with clients, but also internally with his team.

A sustainable way to (structurally) increase your employees’ feelings of fulfilment and engagement therefore starts with the question: why do my people work? Today, as a manager and supervisor it is essential to be sincere and show genuine interest in the people working for you; to know what they long for and desire deep within, and to subsequently turn the correct knobs.

  • Learn what makes you tick as a group
  • Analyse the differences and similarities between team members and other teams

2. Analyse and explain the current situation

  • Which values can and cannot be lived by sufficiently?
  • What motivational drivers and underlying emotional needs and desires remain unfulfilled as a result?
  • What values are shared and offer potential to strengthen the bond between team members?
  • What are conflicting values and may cause conflicts and/or create division within the team?
  • How does this affect the extent to which each employee experiences fulfilment and their intrinsic motivation to thrive and collaborate?
  • How does this affect their performance, the internal collaboration and the overall team performance?
