Our outreach mission at Ultimate Marketing, LLC requires us to field a team that is always on point, works cohesively, and is super productive. That might sound like a tall order, and it is. With time and much experience, however, we’ve learned some useful tools to forge a group of individuals into a high-functioning team.
Leaders at Ultimate Marketing, LLC believe that teams can’t be built from the outside; you must engage each of the members in the process in order for it to be effective. That starts with a group discussion, likely many of them over time, to define and reinforce the team’s common purpose.
It’s important to leave no ambiguity regarding what is to be achieved or the values and behaviors that will be needed to achieve it. We like to bring together our team to brainstorm, with all members contributing to the result. While overall goals and direction may come from the top, it’s important that the team work together to design their own mode of achieving success versus those milestones.
With a course charted and standard operating procedures established, it’s important to take the time along the way to reinforce those initial decisions through regular feedback, both positive and corrective. We bring our people together to discuss successes and failures, examining what worked and what did not. This leads to continual improvement and refinement.
Ultimate Marketing, LLC executives have seen first-hand the value of this process in creating a level of engagement and motivation that is unmatched with other techniques.
