Are you struggling to unleash the full potential of your entrepreneurial employees? Do you find it hard to manage disruptive talent? Maybe you don’t know where to start with Agile in HR™️ in your team?
If so, you’re not alone. Many organisations face this challenge, particularly in the current climate of change and disruption.
The truth is, without innovative ideas and the ability to implement them, organisations will struggle to achieve their goals. And yet, many companies fail to harness the potential of their entrepreneurial employees because they don’t fit into the traditional mould of conformity and stability.
To unlock the full potential of your team, you need to provide them with the freedom, autonomy, resources, and support they need. You can do this with Agile in HR™️. This means creating a culture that rewards experimentation, values constructive nonconformity, and encourages employees to speak up and share their knowledge.
Here are five Agile strategies to help you manage disruptive talent and unleash the full potential of your entrepreneurial employees:
Ditch hierarchical decision-making
Create an environment where employees feel comfortable speaking up and sharing their ideas, even if they don’t agree with you. Reward constructive feedback and criticism, and don’t punish those who challenge the status quo.
Reward constant experimentation
Innovation requires risk-taking, which means accepting the possibility of failure. Encourage experimentation and don’t punish those who try new things, even if they don’t work out.
Promote constructive nonconformity
Diversity is good for business, but only if you create an inclusive culture where people feel valued for being different. Encourage employees to disagree constructively, and turn their differences into a plus.
Don’t suck up to your own boss
As a leader, you need to be able to challenge your boss and express your own ideas. If you’re more focused on being liked by your boss than driving progress for the organisation, you’re not doing your job as a leader.
Shield them from innovation killers
Protect your entrepreneurial employees from those who are passionately committed to stopping change and inhibiting progress. Create a safe space where they can share their ideas without fear of being shut down.
By following these tips, you can create a culture that values disruptive talent and unlocks the full potential of your entrepreneurial employees. Remember, innovation is the key to long-term growth and success, so don’t be afraid to take risks and try new things.
