Team Building Survey Reveals Clues, Not Answers
Team Building Question:
I'm a manager of a team of 20 people and here is my question. At this year's survey, the results show that my team members don't think their colleagues (from my section and from other sections) often act on their own initiative. I would like to know what are the best ways to encourage team members to take initiative. Also, are you aware of any road blocks that would prevent employees to take initiative ?
The Team Doc Says?
Definition of scope, boundaries, authority and autonomy are a must for people to take initiative. Interestingly, during surveys people many times perceive that it's the other person who is not taking enough initiative - never themselves. Yet if you received a lot of answers like this on the survey, there may be another underlying problem. You'll have to dig to find out what that is.
I recommend that you meet with your team to discuss the results of the survey and ask for their suggestions. That's one way to "get some initiative going!" Next meet with each team member individually to discuss their personal goals and any road blocks they are encountering.
Open (and often) communication with your team will help you identify what may be causing this type of survey response.
