The end of the year provides an opportunity for evaluation. There is high value in periodically stepping back and taking a look at how your team is doing. Here are some questions that may create insights:
Overall, was your team at a high level of productivity in 2013?
How did your team do with keeping focus on priorities?
What was the quality level of your team’s work?
Looking individually at each team member, would you say they are fulfilled in their work?
What are the wins your team had this year?
What challenges did they face?
Take any insights and use them to create a strategy for developing, honing and advancing your team in 2014.
“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.” – Leonardo da Vinci
