Focus

Individuals and teams are constantly changing.

Whether it is a new budget, change in staffing, change in direction or just being crazy busy;  “Change-Fatigue” can be a real factor in many workplaces.

Despite the fact that we usually do our best to manage the urgent and unexpected, there is usually a cost. Even teams who are experienced in “putting out bushfires” have a nagging thought in the back of their mind that there are other things they should be getting to.

Smart Teams works on the premise that there are two very different forms of satisfaction at work.

(1) the satisfaction that always comes from short-term trouble-shooting, or

(2) the satisfaction that can come from focusing on long term work

 

Without time to reflect and make changes, most people slip into the first pattern of behavior with no time for the second

  • Smart Teams usually helps teams to get at least 30% more satisfaction from achieving both short and long term intentions.
  • With time to focus on quality you will feel more satisfaction
  • With more focus you will be able to optimise your interactions
  • As you have more focus you will plan better and feel more in control as a team
  • focus = control = quality
