Productivity is about more than getting work done. It's about alignment of ideas, tools, and processes across your team. Productivity includes communication and structure, but it also includes a sense of trust from manager to teammate, from teammate to team.
Workers spend 20% of their work week looking for internal information or tracking down colleagues who can help with specific tasks. The average employee checks their email 36 times an hour, experiences 56 interruptions a day, and attends 62 meetings a month. To be productive is to create an environment that fosters clear communication and process, to help make your team's job easier.
We got together with the masterminds at Trello to bring you a guide to getting your team aligned for 2020. You'll learn tactics you can use today to bring your process up to date, understand your team's preferred tools and communication styles, and get a State of Teamwork survey template to help consolidate your tools, getting everyone working on the same page.
You'll learn about both sides of productivity—the tactical and the personal. From setting S.M.A.R.T. goals to fostering an environment of psychological safety, you'll be ready to start aligning your team around productivity for the coming year.
Just sharing some free knowledge that we hope you’ll find useful. Keep us in mind next time you have marketing questions!
