The 3 Big RIPPLE EFFECTS When YOUR TEAM is NOT Set Up for SUCCESS

Posted on: December 14th, 2016 | by Bill Kenney

CTCollegiateBizPlanCompetition14SpringPutting people in situations where they can succeed is the essence of good leadership. When our teams and team members fail there can be many adverse effects. The repercussions can go far beyond those directly involved. Check out this list to see some of the other stakeholders and how they are affected.

For the Under-performing TEAMS and TEAM MEMBERS

  • Their performance spirals down as they see no path to success
  • They disengage and turnover
  • They become anti-sponsors of your organization and you

For the CUSTOMERS and AUDIENCE

  • Poor individual performance leads to poor service
  • Continued poor service leads to lost customers
  • Lost customers leads to negative promotion

For Other TEAMS and TEAM MEMBERS

  • They observe and learn less productive methods and processes
  • They carry more load when their peers and teammates under-perform
  • They get frustrated, disengage and turnover

For SUPERVISORS, MANAGERS and OWNERS

  • It costs you time, reputation and results as team members don’t realize their potential
  • Your sales and revenue declines, customers and reputation are lost
  • Team members will turnover creating production instability and your career path becomes vulnerable

We’ve been getting this question a lot. Thank you for the kind notes and cards. Many of you have written over the last several weeks to ask if we’re “okay” and what happened to our regular webinars and e-newsletter.

The truth is, we couldn’t be better. We’ve been on the road a ton meeting with customers, at many major and community events and we’ve been looking forward to how our solutions can become even better in 2017.

The webinar schedule will resume on December 19 with Stop Defining Insanity: Set Them Up for Success. The next several webinars will highlight some of our observations and learning from the fall road trips. Where’d we go, you ask? Events included:

Here are recordings of the workshops I was involved in a Startup Istanbul.
