Goals & Priorities

Talk about your vision for the coming year that helps connect your team to a common and unifying purpose.

Solving Problems

Based on the 70:20:10 model, leaders can impact 90% of learning in team discussions to brainstorm and problem-solve, based on group ideas and experiences.

Progress Updates

Annual reviews aren’t enough to make adjustments in today’s fastpaced environment. Try social project tools and figure out how to track progress as a team.

Offering Guidance

Instead of taking over to solve or micromanage, try asking “what’s the real challenge for you?” or simply “what’s on your mind?” to open the discussion.

What's Not Working

Don’t avoid talking about what isn’t working well. Addressing issues soon after they happen gives you a greater chance of solving them.

Celebrating Wins

Research suggests recognition can influence employee engagement by as much as 41%.2

Personal Stuff
