- How To Promote Team Harmony During Times Of Workplace Disruption | Leadership Espresso Shot 49 Tanveer Naseer 9:34
There’s a lot of attention and efforts being put forth by organizations and their leaders to promote ‘greater collaboration’ in their workplaces. This drive has lead some organizations to completely rework their office spaces in order to create “collaboration spaces” that would encourage the exchange and free-flow of ideas and thoughts.
While it might be the case for some that this drive is an attempt to rationalize why leaders want more employees to return to the office, the bigger issue at play here is that mandating collaboration is not the same thing as empowering collaboration within the various teams in your organization. Indeed, what leaders should be putting greater focus on – especially as concerns continue to linger about the possibility of difficult economic times ahead – is how to engender and empower team cohesion at a time when an organization’s workforce is being disrupted by both employees leaving and being laid off.
That’s why in this latest edition of my Leadership Espresso Shot series, I explore three principles leaders in every industry and field should be employing to promote team harmony.
At a time when things remain not only uncertain, but in flux thanks to issues as broad as a scarcity of workers to the burgeoning rise of AI, it’s becoming even more critical for leaders to ensure team cohesion no matter how often their team changes or will change in the months ahead.
These three principles discussed in this episode of my leadership podcast will help you create conditions to ensure your team can weather any storm that crosses their path.
