5 ways to improve productivity with an executive coaching program

Productivity often flows downhill. Low-level employees are more likely to work hard and be productive if the leaders above them are doing what they’re supposed to and contributing to the productivity of the company. With help from Greenvine, you can put your leadership team through an executive coaching program that will teach them skills to increase productivity at the top so it continues to improve at the bottom. If you’ve never considered training for your executive team, we have five ways that you’ll see an improvement that will increase productivity.

Efficient communication

Company communication will trickle down from your executive team to the lowest ranks of your team. We can teach your executives how to use effective communication that will provide your staff with direction as to how they want specific processes performed, implement policy changes, and create a company culture. Communication will play a significant role in each of these, so your top-tier employees must be able to provide effective and efficient communication.

Improved listening

Part of being a good leader is being willing to listen. This is especially true with your executive team when it comes to listening to the needs and wants of the people below them. It’s not uncommon for low- to mid-level employees to feel like the executive team is out of touch with how things operate at the ground level. Whether this is the case or not, it’s important that your executive team listen to the concerns, needs, and struggles of those who are doing the footwork for your company. This will help to improve morale and productivity at these lower levels.

Better self-regulation

When you’re running a company, there’s always something to do. You could work 24 hours a day for 365 days a year and there would still be more work to do. That being said, pacing yourself and regulating your work hours are necessary parts to maintaining productivity. You might feel like you can put in extra work with a sprint in the first six months of the year then coast for the second half, but you’re not going to be doing anybody any favors with that approach. It’s better to treat work like a marathon rather than a 100-meter dash. We can help your executives find ways to unwind and relax while pacing themselves so they can be the best version of themselves for the betterment of the company.

Effective goal setting

We can all set goals as to where we want to be in six months to a year. However, effective goal setting comes with a balance. You need to be able to set goals that are going to push your abilities and the capabilities of the company but aren’t beyond what you can do. For instance, if you’re an executive for a small company that’s been averaging $500,000 in revenue the last three years, you’re probably feeling like you can push the envelope and up that number. If you’re not planning on overhauling what your company does, it might not be realistic to triple your revenue that year. With that, keep in mind that you don’t want to set your goal at reaching $600,000 in revenue for the year. You can find the balance in pushing yourself without stretching your abilities too thin.

Enhanced time management

Productivity and efficiency aren’t concurrent. You can have one without the other, but you get the best results when you can. This comes with time management. You can learn how to manage your time in more efficient ways that will increase productivity from top to bottom. You can identify processes that can be updated to make the job of every employee of your company.
