Boost, Now!

When we wind down the year, sometimes it's hard to get to the end of the line/project and we need a boost.

As leaders, we need to be able to identify the signs that our teams give us so that we can help them achieve those last objectives before the year-end arrives.

What do you do to boost that energy?  Here are a few ideas:

  • take an afternoon out as a team to re-align projects and understand exactly what needs to be and rejuvenated 
  • have a group lunch or breakfast with no talk of time
  • watch an inspirational or no-brainer movie together, with popcorn and all the trimmings (the brain break will help create focus)
  • implement a daily 5 minute recap huddle to share progress and quickly overcome obstacles....builds momentum, helps share the issues
  • celebrate successes each day.....creates a checkmark and solidifies feeling of completion
  • chocolate & treats....actual energy boost...sugar always works!
  • breathing time to refocus the brain with oxygen
  • leeway....everyone boosts differently, give the team some leeway & let them share their energy-boosting ideas with the team
