5 Damaging Ways to Run Your Business

Serviced Office SpaceA recent article, 6 Strategies That are Sabotaging Your Team Management by Kimberly Grimms says that team management is an essential part of an organization, therefore not implementing a well-coordinated team management strategy will drive to career’s dead end.

Here are 5 damaging ways to run your business

  1. Generalizing Your Employees

Generalizing the personalities, working and learning patterns of your employees is one of the most common mistakes team managers make. Therefore, they tend to have an constant approach to managing their employees, resulting in inefficiency and failure.

  1. Weak Client Relationships

As a team leader, you may create your own vision on how your client will respond to your services– doing this usually causes your team efforts more harm than good.

  1. Lack of Commitment

You’re working as a team. If a single member is not working efficiently with the entire team it can damage the whole group.  Employees who are not working efficiently are likely just there to pursue short-term goals. They may not have the desire to fully apply themselves to the job like the rest of your team members do.

  1. Immediate Compensation

Instant raise of compensation may inspire your team members to work harder and more efficiently; but this immediate satisfaction may last within a certain period of time. After the satisfaction from the increase fades away, team members have the tendency to slack on their commitments.

  1. Believing That Perfection Equals Success

If you’re a perfectionist, you’ll find yourself constantly worrying about taking risks in making significant decisions for your team. As a result, nothing ever gets accomplished for your clients. Believing that perfectionism equals success is a flawed belief.
