Every organization wants high-performing teams, so they invest a considerable amount of time and energy into recruiting and retaining the best talent within their industry. Given the fast pace and ever- changing challenges within our world economy, this sometimes may seem impossible to do. However, leaders within human performance cultures face these challenges by focusing time and energy on “nurturing excellence” within their organization.
Whether you are a coach of a world-class athlete or looking to improve the performance of the team you lead in your place of work, nurturing performance excellence is a key fundamental for achieving greater organizational performance. Here are some steps you can take to nurture the talent of your team members.
Keep the joy in the work
Yes, there are lots of demands placed on employees, and work can seem overwhelming at times. However, creating a team where there is a continuous focus on the joy of the day-to-day activities helps to keep all employees engaged during the ups and downs.
Lead with a positive vision
It’s been known for some time, but sometimes overlooked, that creating and leading a team with a positive vision ensures higher levels of motivation amongst team members. This allows them to continuously perform at their best, regardless of challenges they may encounter as they achieve the goals and objectives of the team.
Create a culture of continuous learning
I have mentioned this before in other articles, but it’s a fundamental performance pillar, and worth repeating. Having a culture where formal and informal learning is encouraged greatly enhances employee engagement and performance. For a leader within human performance organization it then becomes important to nurture excellence within the teams, and have learning turned into performance results.
