Leadership: Team Management Tips #1
‘Hot’ tactics for 
heating up your team 
“Hot teams” improvise, do more work with less supervision and make the extra
effort to follow through.Management consultant Laurence Haughton offers this advice for turning ordinarygroups into hot teams:
Don’t become rule
Rules, intended to streamline and safeguard work,can hamstring your operation when common sense calls for exceptions. Beforesetting rule
s, ask if they’re really needed.
2. Don’t
criticize in public.
Embarrassing employees in front of the team willonly come back to bite you. Mean bosses think that
they’re holding people
ccountable, but what they’re really doing is inciting payback.
3. Show you care.
If you like your people and show it, they’ll enjoy helping you
when crunch time comes.
4. Listen.
Make it one on one, as well as in groups. Listening helps you correctmisinformation, relax barriers, increase trust and let people feel good about whatthey do for a living.
5. Make it their mission.
Even when a project is not terribly exciting, you canmake the work more engaging. Creating roles for each person, for example, givespeople a sense of being special.
