Tips on how a Manager can Build a Stronger Team (Infographic)

How to Create a Stronger and More Productive Team

Team Building is an important, integral skill for any manager or leader in today’s professional space. Having a work environment that is team oriented will result in more productive employees, better project results, and happier team mates. 

Teams aren’t formed by dictatorial leaders, they are formed as the product of coaching. Coaches are leaders who involve their team, both in problem solving and workflow optimization. As it turns out, employees respond to questions and involvement much better than they respond to commands. 

A manager acting as a coach will: 

  • Ask their team questions, rather than issue demands. 
  • Involve their employees in trouble shooting, problem solving, and workplace solutions. 
  • Take interest in their employees and show that they care. 
  • Take the time to pay attention to each individual member of the team. 

This info graphic from https://blog.hubspot.com/ showcases these principals with detailed information and great examples!

Are You Prepared for a Natural Disaster? What you need to do to prep…

After watching Hurricanes Harvey and Irma hit Texas and Florida,, you can’t help but stop and think, “I am prepared in the event of a natural or manmade disaster?”

I’m not a “prepper” or a “survivalist”, however, I have lived through 6 hurricanes in my lifetime, the worst one being Andrew in Miami. Even if you home fares well, be prepared to live for a few days without power. I was 2 weeks without electricity after Andrews. My one lesson was not to wait for 4 hours at a grocery store for ice that melts in 2. Way not worth it!

Some of the basics that you need to be prepared are…

  • a radio
  • flashlight
  • batteries
  • canned or packaged, nonperishable food (don’t forget the can opener!)
  • small BBQ or camp stove
  • a full tank of gas in your car

Having at least these items will keep you sane, reduce stress and anxiety.

In this infographic from SafeSmartLiving.com has a complete list to be prepared…

Are You Prepared for a Natural Disaster? What you need to do to prep

Be wise and be safe.

21 Things to do to get a Better Night’s Sleep

If you’re not getting a good night’s sleep you risk some serious health issues. According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute…

Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.

It also makes you gain weight!

In infographic below from LifeHack.org, are 21 things you can do to improve your sleep.

Here are the top 10 things that worked for me. I now get a solid 8 hours most every night.

  1. Start dimming your lights about 2 hours before bedtime.
  2. Use a night-dimmer if you must read on your phone or tablet so you don’t have the blue light that keeps you up.
  3. Do not drink caffeine after 2 pm.
  4. Don’t drink alcohol 1 hour before bed.
  5. Don’t exercise heavily right before bed. Do yoga stretches before going to sleep to relax you.
  6. Drink chamomile tea.
  7. Remove the TV from the bedroom. I don’t miss it at all.
  8. No business or work after 8 pm. Period. It can wait till the morning. Keep a pen and notepad on your nightstand in case you get a brilliant idea. But try to start chilling 1 hour before bed.
  9. Take calcium, potassium, melatonin and magnesium supplements before bed.
  10. Block your eyes from any light. Use a night mask or bandana. The body starts creating melatonin in the dark.

There’s also a cool sleep app — Sleep Cycle — to download on your phone and place it on the nightstand. It’ll monitor your sleep.

Stop Multitasking! You Can Train Your Brain to Focus

Did you know that you could train your brain like a muscle? Yes. These exercises can help you focus and become more productive! 

Here are some effective ways to fight distractions that will help you focus more on what you need to get done:

  1. Listen to music while you work. My mom used to wonder how I could listen to rock and roll music and do my homework at the same time. It has to do with the release of dopamine to your brain. Positive moods help you focus more.
  2. Train your mind like a muscle. Turn off the distractions for a certain amount of time. That email doesn’t need to be addressed immediately! If the phone rings, let them leave a message. If they really want to reach you, they will.
  3. Watch your coffee intake. Yes, caffeine helps you to be alert, but you only need 6 oz. of coffee. Any more can cause anxiousness.

Check out this infographic from CareerBliss with details on how to focus better:
