G10 Glasgow: 5 Ways To Transform Your Team Into Super Stars
GLASGOW, UK, January 2014 – Everyone thinks training is a great idea but in the workplace, professional development often takes the form of pointless workshops that have much in common with school lessons. You’re bored the whole time and forget everything you learned soon afterwards. Here are some tips from the G10 team on how to train a great team:
1. Hire people who want to learn
You want people with a growth mind-set. People who believe they are capable of improving with hard work do, in fact, work harder and achieve more. Whereas a “fixed” mind-set--believing that you are good or bad at things--limits human possibility.
2. Focus on the practical
In any industry, training that deals primarily with the skills people use daily will stick more than training that doesn’t.
3. Practice--a lot
4. Show what good looks like
Have new hires observe your top performers and--just as important--make sure those top performers talk through what they’re doing.
5. Create a culture of feedback
Forget annual reviews (http://www.fastcompany.com/
