The seismic shift in the way the world works and collaborates as teams and organisations is here to stay.
The challenges are being felt strongly and those that have energy, see the opportunities these challenges present.
New opportunities to solve problems. To serve others. To create solutions.
We will eventually be able to return to our offices, but as companies have been forced to accommodate remote work on a mass scale, the new systems and cultures emerging to suit this new environment will certainly remain.
This article runs through some of our core values and beliefs in relation to performance and health – with further details and how you can join our weekly endeavours – we hope to see you on Zoom!
High Performing Teams are Healthy Teams
As work and life become increasingly integrated, companies will do well by prioritising their team’s physical, mental and social health.
Leading a high-performance team isn’t just about strategy, mentoring, KPIs and communication.
It’s about making sure that each member of the team is able to work at their full capacity. About making sure they are well-fuelled (good nutrition), are healthy (physically active) and have the ability to focus (a clear mind).
Where any one of these aspects is neglected, it is difficult for an individual to perform, in work, let alone life.
Wellness as a Core Value
Is Wellness a core value of the organisation and are systems in place to ensure it is prioritised?
Does your company’s culture reward team members for being honest about the challenges in their lives? Does it support them to show up as best they can, even if today it isn’t 100%?
What is the management team doing to not only look after employee’s professionally and financially, but physically and emotionally?
While time is a finite resource, energy isn’t. Our goal as leaders of high-performing teams should be to enhance our team’s energy levels, rather than focus on the length of time we need them to be working.
Tony Schwartz and Catherine McCarthy in their Harvard Business Review article said “To effectively reenergize their workforces, organizations need to shift their emphasis from getting more out of people to investing more in them, so they are motivated—and able—to bring more of themselves to work every day. To recharge themselves, individuals need to recognize the costs of energy-depleting behaviours and then take responsibility for changing them, regardless of the circumstances they’re facing.”
This has never been truer.
What can you do?
Firstly, review your organisation’s values, cultures and systems. If changes need to be made to prioritise team wellness, do so.
Next, there are a range of options available with joining group personal training sessions being the most obvious.
You don’t have to re-invent the wheel, simply join in. The opportunity that COVID-19 presents right now is that it is easier than ever to join in a group physical class – through Zoom.
