Managing Stretched Workers: What Managers Need to Change to Sustain Morale and Productivity

Duration: 60 minutes

Your employees are working harder than ever but they’re just not keeping up. Maybe your company is on an upswing and bringing new business and can’t hire fast enough. Or maybe you’ve experienced turnover and now four people do the work of seven.

Either way, your team is stretched, morale is low and productivity is down. Worse, there’s an increased risk that you’ll lose key employees and problems will escalate. But you can turn things around.


 

Strong leadership is key. When teams are challenged with a workload that stretches beyond their capacity, good managers step up. Everyone – your employees and your executive team – needs you to develop a plan, communicate your vision and manage morale.

The bottom line: YOU need to own the problem and earn your team’s commitment to achieving both short and long term goals.

      LEARNING OBJECTIVES

      In this 60-minute presentation, leadership expert Carol Hacker will show you how to get it done. She’ll discuss: 

      • Why employees need strong managers to lead them in both lean times and times of growth 
      • The importance of showing employees that the company has clear goals and a coherent road map for achieving them
      • Why you need to show your employees appreciation for even the smallest accomplishments
      • How to motivate people by giving them direct “line of sight” to company goals 
      • How to use the power of teamwork to sustain motivation and prevent minor roadblocks from deflating morale
      • How to get people focused on the both short and long term goals
      • Why it’s important to communicate candidly with employees and create realistic expectations
