How to Make Team Take Ownership

How to Make Team Take Ownership

In ‘HOW TO’ series in the earlier blog titled How to keep team engaged we discussed how to keep team motivated through various rewards that can be designed keeping the overall objective in mind. In the current blog the topic of discussion will be how to rise to the next level and make the team take ownership.

Typically, the owner ensures business flourishes by accepting all suffering to help grow the business to its fullest potential. He does it because he owns the business and the same sentiment can be transferred to rest of the team members if they have a say in how the business is run. Let us look at large efficient public organizations where no visible owner exists, but the team carries the work in the most sensible manner. Similarly, small size businesses can allow the active participation by the team members to earn the body, heart, mind and even soul of their employees. Do remember here that many large successful businesses were started as small. After all, producing satisfactory results helps people feel good about themselves and is the key to happiness and doing things we do well. Read More

Routine work becomes boring over time, but play is always fun irrespective of the hours involved as it engages us while providing both fun and the satisfaction. Check out that almost the whole country actively gets busy watching IPL for a prolonged period and overtime infecting the less interested ones too. What if we can offer them the scope of playing the game instead of being the silent spectators? Why not design the crucial parts interestingly so that the work itself becomes the play? If you are not getting the engagement you seek, ask the magic question: “What’s being rewarded?” The things that get rewarded get done but more important is what needs to be rewarded. Also, important here to highlight that no matter what the game is, a small percentage of people will perform brilliantly or poorly due to factors such as personal ability, needs, values etc., factors over which one has no control.  Read More
