The Office

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)
Take a close look at any team and you'll see a mind-boggling array of personalities. You've got the chatty people and the quiet ones, the ambitious go-getters and the, well, not-so-ambitious go-getters. You've got people who thrive under pressure and people who crumble at the mere mention of the word deadline.
    It seems like a recipe for disaster. So what's the key? Communication. Whether it's through face-to-face conversations, phone calls, e-mails or instant messaging, every team member has to stay up to speed. And if there is a problem, they need to clue in the rest of the team.
    How do you work with your team to make sure projects are completed? And how do you deal with those problems that always seem to arise just when you think you're almost done?

I check in with my team periodically to make sure everyone is running on schedule. I try to switch up between communicating by e-mail and stopping by in person so that everyone feels like they are getting face time. I also encourage an "open door" policy - that way when problems arise, people feel free to communicate them to me right away and we can strategize about how to deal with them.
