Team Engagement that brings the best out of everyone

Are you managing a team where only a few dominate and others sit by silently? Research shows that teams, where each member participates more or less equally, are highly engaged. And highly engaged teams lead to productive teams.

What does equal participation look like? It just boils down to everyone listening and talking in relatively equal proportions.

Iā€™m happy to be presenting a multi-part virtual training at the Minnesota Council for Nonprofits called Practical Leadership: Supervising for Team Engagement beginning on June 11, 2019. We will explore ways to build highly engaged teams.

Here are some ways to foster equal participation in your team:

  • Rotate the facilitation of team meetings among all team members

  • As a supervisor, make it a clear expectation with everyone you supervise that they will need to fully participate in team meetings

  • Start noticing together with your team about the participation levels

  • Ask team members to start self-monitoring their participation

  • Mix up team processes to appeal to both introverts and extroverts

  • Hold a one-on-one coaching conversation with those team members who are dominating or not participating enough

We will dive into these leadership techniques and much more during the Practical Leadership: Supervising for Employee Engagement virtual training, visit the Minnesota Council For Nonprofits website here where you can register for the training..
