Guidelines for Leading an Innovative Team

Creativity is at the core of all of Chicago On-site’s work. It is essential to staying on the cutting edge of our industry. Our management team is dedicated to building an innovative workplace. Achieving this goal is a complex process. However, every business leader can follow a few guidelines to better support their teams’ creativity.

The most innovative leaders bring vision and energy to their teams. They get their people excited to succeed. Their charisma, attention to detail, and drive inspire others to reach higher and push harder. However, this alone is not sufficient to bring a team to success.

The key to fostering innovation is understanding the people on your team. Our Chicago On-site management team uses insight into the wants and needs of our people to foster an empowering culture. In many cases, the best way to understand a team is to apply some recognizable personas.

Try thinking about your people in terms of organizers, connectors, and fixers. The organizers are analytical and prefer order and planning to overcome issues. Connectors are people-focused and watch out for their peers. Fixers are hard workers who are ready to work hard to find solutions.

Using these personas can enable you to better understand your team members and their relationships with innovation. These details are the keys to making changes that will help your people achieve more. To find more information, follow Chicago On-site on Twitter.
