7 Tips to Re-energize Your Weak Team

A weak team will not survive. Read Ron Edmondson's tips to help bring the energy back to your team.

4. Introduce change.

You need to try something new. Perhaps several somethings new. Now is not the time to resist doing something different. Obviously, what you’ve been doing isn’t working. Explore again. Be intentional and make sure the changes line up with the vision, but encourage movement. Movement often spurs momentum. Especially new movement.

5. Fuel potential.

There are usually areas that are working and areas that are not. If no areas are working, you may be looking for different answers than this post can provide. Sometimes it’s hard to discern what is working when you are clouded by what isn’t working, but you must try. (Outside perspectives can sometimes work here too.) Often these are things the team is known for, or are things that are fairly new but are working. Wherever there is a spark of any kind, you must fuel it. This is the best place to spur more momentum quickly.

6. Celebrate small wins.

When you have something to celebrate, make a big deal out of it. A really big deal. Put your party hat on now! Seriously, don’t go overboard over something that people will quickly dismiss as nothing, but if you are seeing any signs of hope, share them. People need the energy of something going well to keep pushing forward for even more success.

7. Encourage one another.

Remember, the hard times as a team can actually help build your team for long-term success. Allow this to be a time you grow together as a team, figure this out together, and help the team to grow and succeed again. Pray for and with each other. Cheer each other on daily! You can do it!
