Motivate those left behind.
So what do you need to do to keep the people you retain after retrenchment, on board and engaged?
You need to move very quickly to ensuring you focus on those you keep and minimize the de-motivators for them.
As part of a retrenchment exercise you must develop a clear vision of how the restructured organization will operate.
You need to clearly communicate your ideas and get your team engaged in delivering it.
Often leaders think of struggling to deliver with less resource.
A streamlined organization is the perfect time to challenge how work is done.
And the best ideas on how to improve a process comes from those who do it. Not their manager.
So tell them the outcome you want; then use your coaching skills to get them thinking about how to do it.
