Good teamwork, both inside and outside the team, is crucial. Find out how Aseem Bakshi, Associate Director – Process at Blazeclan Technologies, and one of the Top 100 Great People Managers of 2021 by Great Manager Institute® published in Forbes India, has opened the growth opportunity for everyone in the team.
“Focus on uplifting skills for all team members simultaneously.”
For the team to work more effectively, Aseem has focused on simultaneously boosting the skill levels of all team members; this allows them to use the same skill to connect at a greater level. The team recently focused on learning a specific skill related to the Scrum methodology due to the group learning that occurred, which has helped them understand the methodology’s fundamental ideas.
“Give rewards and recognition for every small win.”
Aseem made it a point to celebrate each accomplishment and to publish one excellent accomplishment every quarter in the workplace with the award “You Made a Difference”, which led to the team expressing respect for one another and improved team retention.
“Ensure that all team members have equal opportunities to be promoted.”
He made a conscious effort to provide equal opportunity as a team and ensured no gender bias. He ensured everyone on the team was responsible for the most deliverables while keeping bandwidth in mind. To do this, he gave each team member two goals: the first was to search for issues, and the second was that if any team member leaves, the remaining team members would be expected to take over or share the duty.
