Running any sort of department or team has its inherent challenges and soulful rewards. While there is no simple formula for keeping your team motivated and productive, I’ve followed a few simple guidelines that were effective with my own team.
In my experience, building a team to peak performance requires members to be dialed in. In today's workplace where so many employees are remote, we rely on phone, chat, chatter, email, past conversations and a plethora of supporting cast to ensure the momentum always continues to build and move forward. This type of communication is key for producing clarity. Our social learning layer, Skillsoft® inGenius® fosters informal learning and gives teams the opportunity to share knowledge and collaborate. In early 2013, customers will be able to take social collaboration and learning a step further with our Skillport® 8 platform.
