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.

I’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..

Modern techniques for effective employee evaluation

From performance evaluation to performance learning


Are you still stuck in the stone age when it comes to conducting employee evaluations? Still doing the same old annual appraisal?

Many organizations continue to conduct employee appraisals once a year and this process is inherently flawed because it lacks future-focus and offers many opportunities for inconsistency errors and biases.

The modern workforce requires a modern approach to evaluations. It’s time to do away with the annual performance evaluation and shift to a focus on learning and growth.

The Minnesota Council for Nonprofits (MCN) hosts effective, virtual training courses that cover this and many other relevant leadership topics.

On May 7, 2019, MCN will host a virtual Spotlight on Employee Engagement and Retention. As part of this Spotlight, Lisa Negstad from Negstad Consulting LLC will provide a 1-hr presentation on effective employee evaluation techniques and best practices: “From Performance Evaluation to Performance Learning.”

This presentation will build a case for why annual evaluations don't actually help performance and it will offer practical ideas for shifting your organization to a focus on performance learning. We will also show where an individual supervisor can start making changes to make the performance management process truly employee-driven.
