Everyone in leadership is aware that productivity is a frequently discussed subject. Increased productivity is the end goal that everyone strives for, regardless of what you’re doing to make yourself more productive or what’s hindering it. It takes a lot of work, effort, trial and error to increase your team’s productivity; there is no automatic way to do so. Even though there are countless articles on “productivity hacks” and other quick fixes, they rarely work when put to the test. The term “productivity” refers to how much an individual or team produces as output. For people, it’s typically expressed in terms of how much they can produce or accomplish in a single day. At the corporate level, team productivity refers to how many projects or assigned tasks team members complete. It can also refer to the number of conversations or tickets handled in a day in a queue-based role like support. The productivity of an employee and their value are often correlated for many businesses. An employee will advance in their career more quickly than someone who does not if they are highly productive and regularly contribute to the overall company mission. Being productive is therefore beneficial to the employee as well as the company. Productivity improvement is not the same as juicing an orange. It’s not like you’ll get more juice if you squeeze more firmly. If you squeeze too hard, the juice will eventually run out. Instead, how much you can empower your team will determine how much productivity you can increase. Team members who feel empowered and confident accomplish more and work harder than those who don’t.
