Encourage your team to continuously improve.

Your goal as a leader should be to build a team that can function well even when you are not around. To do this, you must encourage your team members to keep improving at what they do by setting standards - and consequences when they do not meet those standards. Otherwise, their subpar performance becomes the new standard.


  1. Enforce standards that your team members must meet.
    Set standards for your team and enforce them with consequences. These consequences do not have to take the form of severe punishment. In fact, simply making someone repeat a task until they have perfected it is enough to improve performance.
  2. Once a week, review your team’s performance.
    You should review both the performance of your team as a whole, as well as the performance of each individual member. Ask yourself if they met the standards you have. Be brutally honest.
  3. Identify the team members who are underperforming.
    These members will require additional training from you so that they can meet the standards that have been set.
