How to Encourage Teamwork in Your Organisation



apple business

The most successful businesses in the world put a huge emphasis on teamwork. These organisations do this for some very good reasons. A business becomes stronger and each employee contributes more. As well as this, there is less confusion because each team member knows what they are doing and understands what the overall goal of their ‘team’ or company is. Below are some of the best ways you can encourage teamwork in your business.

Set Goals

First of all, a team has to have some kind of common goal. It may be an overall goal, where a business wants to grow by a certain amount over the course of a year, the company wants to be seen as an industry leader, or the business wants to provide the best service possible to its clients.

Once a goal has been set, you then need to find out how this can be achieved and who will help you achieve this goal. At this stage, you can decide who will do what. This is a much more inclusive way to do business and brings your employees closer together because they have a common goal to reach.

Introduce Technology That Promotes Teamwork

Sometimes it can be difficult to get people to work together, simply because they may not be in the same location or they are located in different parts of a building. However, a wide range of business systems break down many of the physical barriers that exist in a business. These systems allow different people to access the same information and to work on the same projects, even though they may be working in different locations. Other systems like call centre agent motivation applications can help to make your agents more engaged, and more willing to work towards team goals.


Unfortunately, communication is a big problem in many businesses today. The problem increases as a business gets bigger so you need to tackle this issue as quickly as possible.

You can start the process of improving the communication in your company by providing communication courses that will help each of your employees to deal with different situations. These courses improve negotiation skills, diplomacy skills, selling skills, management skills and much more.

Once each employee is trained in the appropriate way, the people who make the decisions in your business need to adopt a more inclusive approach. Everyone involved in a team needs to be listened to and should be allowed to contribute and make suggestions, because it’s often the quietest people on a team that have the best ideas.

Team Building Exercises

Sometimes people make false assumptions about their fellow workers. However, when you get to know someone better, you may find out that these assumptions were way off the mark. This is why business owners should find ways to bring their employees closer together. Team building exercises and social nights out are an effective way to do this and have the potential to make your business teams much stronger units.

It’s vital to promote teamwork in the workplace. Each of the steps above will ensure that the bonds between your employees become stronger which can only benefit your business.

Trump Comments on Stock Market’s latest drop – says it’s ‘peanuts’



trump comments peanuts on stock market

Trump says Tuesday’s market drop is ‘peanuts’

President Donald Trump played down the stock market’s losses on Tuesday as “peanuts” when compared with the importance of striking a good deal with China and the gains since his election.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average “was about 16,000 or 15,000 and now it’s almost at 30,000,” Trump said at the NATO summit in London. “It’s going to be at 30,000.”

“If the stock market goes up or down — I don’t watch the stock market. I watch jobs. Jobs are what I watch,” he added. Today’s move is “peanuts compared to — we have picked up record numbers so that’s OK. That’s the way I feel.”

The major stock indexes slid Tuesday after Trump said he thinks it would be a good idea to delay signing a trade deal with China after the 2020 presidential election. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 450 points at its lows on Tuesday, led lower by trade-vulnerable AppleCaterpillar and 3M.

“In some ways, I like the idea of waiting until after the election for the China deal, but they want to make a deal now, and we will see whether or not the deal is going to be right,” Trump told reporters before U.S. markets opened Tuesday. When asked if he had a deal deadline, he added: “I have no deadline, no. … In some ways, I think it is better to wait until after the election if you want to know the truth.”

Despite his assurances that he doesn’t watch the market’s daily moves, Trump often tweets within hours of when the U.S. equity market reaches an all-time high. He has tweeted the keyword “stock market” 107 times since his inauguration

How to become a better businessman in 6 steps; Priceless advice from Entrepreneurs



Become a better businessman in 6 steps following this priceless advice from accomplished entrepreneurs.

  1. “Do something you’re very passionate about, and don’t try to chase what is the hot passion of the day.”

    Jeff Bezos accentuates having passion for what you are doing, because if you don’t love it you are much more likely to give up. It’s hard to take an idea and turn it into reality, especially by yourself or when people whom you respect tell you it can’t be done. The passion and love you give to your project will determine it’s success rate over time.

  2. “Don’t let people who you may respect and who you believe know what they are talking about tell you that it can’t be done.”

    Pierre Omidyar continues to say that often they will tell you it can’t be done and that’s only because they don’t have the courage to try it.

  3. “If you know exactly who you want to be, you need to spend as much time [as possible] with people that are actually that already.”

    This advice from Gary Vaynerchuk is actually priceless when it comes to success in the business world. Think as well “It’s not what you know but who you know,” and surround yourself with people you look up to. Human’s adapt to their surroundings quickly, and soon you won’t just want to be an entrepreneur, you will also know how to act like one.

  4. “Come up with 10 new ideas every day.”

    Coming up with at least 10 new ideas every day will keep your “idea muscle” in shape, which is critical for an entrepreneur in order to keep going and stay ahead of the fast paced business world. James Altucher continues to say that once you’ve done this for about 6 months you will be an idea machine. New ideas keep passionate projects alive and ensure growth in every direction.

  5. Realize that, “naturally, nobody is interested in your ideas. You have to persuade them, and you have to show them that you are the one person out there that can do it.”

    Robert Greene, an American author known for his books on strategy, also says that “no one is really going to help you or give you direction.” Realizing this sooner than others will give you a head start and the ability to stop looking for recognition in others. Instead, you can focus on your passion project and make it perfect, and the world will not be able to ignore it.

  6. “Don’t think about ‘how do I get big fast.’ That will happen if you build something meaningful and important.”

    How to encourage teamwork in your organisation

    Danae Ringelmann’s advice is not something to skip. If you rush your ideas or your product you will be relying on luck more than anything to create success for you. While luck is certainly involved in alot of things, relying on it or betting on it to ‘get big fast’ doesn’t help you become a better businessman. Being proud of what you create, instilling passion into your work, and working hard will ensure success more than anything.
