Tips for delivering results

What are we currently doing to create and maintain high performance? How well do we know our teams and colleagues as individuals? Why might that matter? What else could we do? 

During our surgery sessions we identified and shared a number of useful Tips:

  1. Review tasks for overlap and to clarify what old tasks can be ‘stopped’ as no longer a priority, to reduce workload.
  2. Gain support from your immediate line manager in setting a culture of trust.
  3. Share current successes to highlight new approaches.
  4. Use Teams Chat function for informal catch-ups.
  5. Use the phone function (but do not expect people to respond immediately – quick chat message first).
  6. Turn off notifications.
  7. For emails set up team inboxes, experiment with rotas or timings.
  8. Push back, bit by bit, to realign expectations.
  9. Be open and transparent about the need for shifting expectations.
