August 16, 2022

One of the many benefits of Truvelop is the messaging our Customer Success team sends to leaders and managers on the 1st and 15th of every month. Through Truvelop Tips, we share best practices, proactive recommendations, and quicks tips with end users on various topics. Here is an excerpt from the most recent Truvelop Tip: Tap into Your Team’s Potential:

As a Manager, how can you inspire your team to perform their best? What can you do to build your team’s confidence and commitment?  What obstacles need to be removed to help them achieve their KPI’s with ease? Help your team tap into their potential to instill a strong sense of competence, and ultimately inspire them to stay longer. 

  • Set Clear Expectations: Set your team up for success by setting clear expectations and responsibilities.  Team Members want to know where they stand and what they need to do to be successful.  In fact, employees are 23% more likely to stay if their manager clearly explains their roles and responsibilities (TinyPulse). By clearly outlining KPI’s and assigned goals, you can remove any confusion about what a Team Member’s role looks like in the day-to-day. Ask your team member regularly if they understand their role and what success looks like. Document these responsibilities with a Spark. 
  • Celebrate Strengths: Everyone likes to feel seen and recognized.  When Managers cite what a Team Member brings to the table, the Team Member feels like they are able to contribute to their team and organization’s success.  They know that their Manager sees value in what they do.  In fact, 71% of employees who believe their manager can name their strengths feel engaged and energized by their work (Gallup).  
  • Reflect on Progress: Whether a Team Member has reached a goal, or it’s just been a while since the last check-in, reflecting on progress is a great way to remind a Team Member of their contributions and growth.  You can refer to this Review Guide for additional guidance, or have the Team Member complete a Growth Mindset Reflection Guide.

Your Team Member can be a top performer for your organization, but that doesn’t guarantee that they will feel competent.  Building a strong foundation of competence and confidence is a great way to keep your team feeling engaged, valued, and inspired.  Proactively inspire your team to tap into their full potential and stay longer within your organization by fostering employee retention.
