Whenever someone asks Rajiv about growing a business with the help of a team, he always talks about these 8 things. He calls them 8Cs of team building.
All of these 8 have to be perfectly aligned & run together. It can make or break the growth of the organization. Let’s look at them one by one. These 8 pillars don’t need explanation. They are pretty much self explanatory.
Of each team member
so that the top performers don’t turn into Silos. We don’t want that in an organization!
Gone is that era when the business owner would create the goals and dump them on the team. Today, its about getting the team excited about the goals and helping them achieve it. It is what brings ownership and responsibility.
Performance grows only when skills and knowledge grows. Its the responsibility of the business owner to work on the competence of team members
Monitoring and tracking the performance of team members to see if they are on track or not. As important as a pilot checking the direction of the plane frequently, to ensure that its not distracted from the destination.
Its probably the most important, as Rajiv mentions often. Business owners need to strike the right balance of RESULTs & RESPECT in the culture of the organization. This holds the team together.
Celebrating with rewards, recognition and respect shows care. Its not a new concept, but most businesses fail to implement this properly.
This is the secret to make your team push boundaries, get out of the comfort zone and produce results. When the team members are able to see a career growth trajectory that your company has for them, they focus on achieving goals, so they earn the right to that career growth plan.
Having sincere intentions of making every piece of the business work optimally, but somehow failing to do so.
If you can resonate with this guilt, you’re not alone.
