Spot Quiz – Do You Know the People on Your Team?

Imagine, a senior manager stops by during your team meeting. Could you, if asked, introduce each individual in the room providing the following information?

  • Name
  • How long they have been with the company
  • Role on the team
  • Special strengths they bring to the team
  • Current project and why it is important

If you don’t have all of this information right on the tip of your brain, work on it. Great leaders really know the people on their teams

    I like your encouragement for managers/supervisors to know more than their team members’ names. I would hope mangers would be engaged enough to link the last two items on your list: the team member’s strengths and the current project.

    The linking gives the manager an opp. to comment on the team member’s engagement, for how (well) one applies one’s strengths and skills to the work s/he does is the epitome of engagement.

    And such verbal recognition by the manager can only encourage still more engagement.
