corporate employees running on treadmills

Adding Human touch to change – Do you ever feel like your team is on a treadmill, despite your clear goals and OKRs?

The problem is usually the failure to connect those objectives to your individual team membersโ€™ everyday actions.

When what you do every day is not influenced by team goals, you are not moving, and team members will be frustrated. Itโ€™s like having a map on a road journey inside your car but failing to adjust your car for the different terrains you will come across.

In the same way, if your team members are not making daily small behaviour changes to align with those objectives, finding success as a team will feel like a Sisyphus effort. This failure to connect daily behaviours to broader goals might cause target misalignment which will reduce morale and increase your turnover. Some indicators that you have a target misalignment issue include:

1. Frustration over lack of progress despite “busy” days.
2. Miscommunication and misunderstandings of priorities. .
3. Team meeting with no engagement or willingness to discuss your objectives.
4. Continuously high-stress levels and burnout from team members .
5. Management puts pressure on team members, but the effect is always negative.

Do you recognise these signs?
