Quite often the workplace can feel more like a battleground than a place to be productive and to get tasks and assignments completed. Offices dramas and squabbles take away from the overall productivity of the workday. As a result tasks and jobs that could have been finished in a few hours are now pushed back an extra day – and all because co-workers are spending more time sabotaging one another’s work more then they are trying actually to work.
If you have noticed this with your workers and want to create a bit more harmony amongst the group – then it would prove most beneficial for you to understand a bit about, behavioral assessment and how to better quell the drama between workers that may not be hitting it off so well.
Furthermore, it would prove invaluable to you if you also started to study a bit more about the predictive index as this will help you discover if your workers have any ulterior motives ( i.e. spies from other business or just workplace sociopaths.)
So here in the list, we have outlined 6 Positive Ways To Bring Co-workers Together. The stronger the bonds, the better the productivity.
6 Positive Ways To Bring Co-workers Together
# 1 – Recognize That There Will Be Differences Of Idea
This may come as no shocker, but it is important to have workers understand that there will be different opinions on how things should work and how a job should be handled. Understanding and respecting different beliefs will prove most useful in not only garnering new ideas but also instilling in people the sense to recognize different opinions.
# 2 – Recommendation Box
Sometimes for some people, the idea of verbally saying what is on their mind can be a complicated and trying ordeal. It is because of this reason that it would be a great idea to have an anonymous box of recommendation that co-workers could place their thoughts about the office place or co-workers.
# 3 – Change Up The Routine
This could prove to be very useful for your team – as pairing certain individuals together to find which work very well together could bring a group closer. Having individuals that can honestly work well together and strive to do the best that they can do will make the job that much easier.
# 4 – Celebrate Milestones
By celebrating milestones that the TEAM accomplished it will instill in them the idea of working together and wanting to strive to continue giving the best work that they can. In a study, it was asked of workers if they would instead want an extra sum of money, in the form of a bonus, or just be told thank you.
A majority of the people chose the latter instead of the former. Merely acknowledging the work that the team did and celebrating milestones they accomplished will create a more cohesive unit.
# 5 Inspire The Team With Positivity
The team will very much be what they see the boss as. If you are a hard worker and demand more of yourself than your workers then by default the workers will want to strive and grind as hard. So show positivity, and that will spread to the team.
# 6 Pizza Party
Come on. Is there anything else that can bring a group together than PIZZA? Yeah, we didn’t think so. It doesn’t have to be a pizza party but just showing your appreciation for the team and how hard they worked, by throwing an office party will do wonders for building that camaraderie.
