Workability Check

HOW TO KEEP THE (VIRTUAL) FINGER ON THE PULSE OF YOUR TEAM MEMBERS

The Virtual Workability Check guides you step-by-step into having a motivating dialogue with team members, taking action together, and collecting information that is relevant here and now but also valuable and useful for the future. You can do this yourself as a leader, delegate within your organization or put it in the hands of Beanmachine.

— Question 3 —
How can I support my team members remotely and be of added value to them?

As a manager, business manager, team or project leader...you need, here and now, to:

  • have a uniform script to be able to connect with your team members, even on a large scale.
  • have a clear structured tool that helps you to maintain a qualitative connection with your team members.

Our 5 building blocks program

Start-up: You will receive a clear step-by-step plan and planner

Step 1. With a number of informal questions you have a short conversation with your team members and you explain your plan.

Step 2. You then give them a survey focusing on work ability in these circumstances:

  • Motivation
  • Values, beliefs and motives
  • Energy givers/eaters
  • Competencies and competencies to be acquired
  • The job

Step 3. You discuss the results of the survey with each employee during a video call. Presumably there are common experiences/results among the team members. Sharing these during an online team meeting creates a bond

Step 4. Together you come up with solutions for what is happening. You make an overview of what is urgent and important, formulate short-term objectives and distribute tasks using a digital canvas.

Step 5. You follow up, discuss, motivate, ... based on the previous conversation.

"As a consultant, I see how professionals today face tough challenges. As a coach, the many conversations teach me that it is rarely just a matter of 'learning new skills' or 'getting time to adjust"
