Working as a team can sometimes be a challenge. Teamwork falls apart if all members are not dedicated to or passionate about the project. Still the acronym Together Everyone Achieves More can still apply even if one doesn’t put the effort in that others do.
Motivation goes a long way.
Rewarding teamwork and thanking the participants for their hard work shows them vital support and rewards as a team leader. Nobody likes the boss who can’t congratulate them or remember when they were performing exceptionally well. Heaping on praise is a sure fire way to keep your team active in your business.
What about teamwork in a home business?
Like any other people like to get rewarded or praised when meeting smaller goals in the scope of the project. We all own our own businesses in a home business so approach must never come as barking out orders. These are your peers and colleagues and they run a business of their own. Regular meetings like a webinar or hangout on air can help motivate a team more than saying do this do that.
There is no I in team is a odd parable as each team maker is bound to work alone towards the greater teams success.
I personally believe there is an I in teamwork. You have to say to yourself what can I do to help others in the team and forward the project. You can start by recognizing the small contribution the weakest team member has completed and asking them if they need some help. Chances are they will accelerate their own performance as you show them a path to completing their end of the project.
What kind of projects does a home business have that relate to teamwork?
The first thing that helps is being with your recruit during their training. This builds a relationship and trust between you. Second is that pat on the back when they start recruiting and/or generating sales. Tell them I saw that you recruited 3 new members today, do you need any help getting them started and motivated? Just the offer alone will make one feel less burdened by the task knowing you have their back.
Teamwork is a group effort and the leaders will show themselves early on.
The total performance of the team can also develop new leaders if they see good examples from you and other members of the team. Recruiting and sales can be a great project if you all put in and get similar results. That is where co-op advertising is always a great chance to do more with less. If you have 5 members to your team putting in $40 each you will have a $200 advertising budget. This allows you to take advantage of special rebates for higher volume orders. If not it can at least expand your reach and bring I valuable leads.
Team building is a never ending job for all team members in a home business.
Let’s face it, even recruiting new members constantly you will still have attrition as weaker members will give up and quit along the way. Others will take one brief overview and decide your opportunity is not a good fit with their plans. You need to help fill out more than one level of your team while also keeping your 5 and motivation and determination on your part and a advertising cooperative that gets results will help you achieve the goals of all members who are ready to get to work in a business of their own.
