Homo Schablonicus makes executives happy
It seems very practical to sort people into handy screens. This makes it easier for employees to make the necessary job requests. At the same time, it optimally limits the responsibility of the personnel creator from the respective management. If it does not work with the new, the theorielastic personality psychology of the assessment center is not the fault, but the practical leadership psychology of leadership.
In a self-experiment, the procedures for making our personality more interesting are interesting and in areas very revealing. Yes, they bring so much light into the darkness of self-discovery. At the same time, for these reasons, they are also so frightening, because our beloved ME suddenly seems so stenciled and controllable by others.
Similar results of different analyzes also confirm these findings and allow us to mature in our faith in the human being to be treated as a raster. How practical: finally the modern, supposedly so individual person, fits again into technical raster, which we have so appreciated. What a blessing for the management: Teambuilding actually happens by itself, because the newcomer does not only close a specialist but even a personality gap in the department.
Beautiful theory. The world looks different.
As far as is theoretically possible, teams can be completely analyzed and newly created from a flood of applicants. But when does it happen? Most of the time, the new person was analyzed in his or her personality and is still more or less skilfully implanted in the team.
But in general, it is much more primitive: one is glad to get anyone at all and takes what is technically quite suitable and the settler seems halfway charming. In addition, the executive has to integrate the "new country" with all the technical tasks and now even higher staffing requirements and use them optimally in the workflow.
Teambuilding is not deligible
So it takes a team building action. Skilled leaders are then very eager to use seemingly proven methods to turn a group of people into a true team. And just in the way they had learned it as functional: press this button, then you get that effect. So all types of events are booked, which for hours or days pretend the perfect team world and leave behind hefty expenses rather quickly "nothing".
Unfortunately, teambuilding does not work that way with people. Take a look at any top team from any area. Were those in rubber boats down rivers sent home and then a world champion title? No. Such measures are nice, fun, nice and relax the atmosphere. Not more. Guide and thus team building is not delegable.
Teambuilding always takes place in its own juice
Give your people the opportunity to celebrate successes in their very own job on a regular basis. Shared success is the best teambuilder. There is nothing to shake it about.
These are your most effective tools as a team-building leader:
- Perform real conversations in private. Frequently with every team member. 10 to 15 conversations a year.
- In the conversation, give something of yourself personally. Show yourself as a human being. You get it back from your people on the same level.
- Just do what you love. Then you can also take other people with you.
- Ask your team, what annoys everyone. Resolve every anger unmistakably. Your team learns how to quickly and consistently eliminate annoyances.
- Make arrangements and define clear responsibilities. Request this relentlessly without any delay.
- Live the values of your team without exception and consistently, without letting in.
- Crank up your people's creativity resources efficiently and free of charge: Get your team completely out of the working world and, for example, allow only private topics during a walk in the park. Then you suddenly ask for comments or solutions for current problems.
