Key Insights

 Less Time Can Mean More Work

In today’s work at home environment, your team can actually be less distracted. They aren’t recovering from their commute, chatting with coworkers as they get coffee, constantly being bugged by the person working next to them. 

As a result, they can get more done in a day. Instead of trying to pile more onto them, reward them. Working 9-3 instead of 9-5 can result in people being more productive during their actual working hours, and in exchange they get more time with their families and hobbies. 

If You Don’t Split a Dollar 6 Ways, You Haven’t Done Your Job

Let’s say you have a dollar to split between six people in a team. Of course, if you were to just pick purely performance as a metric, you allocated a disproportionate amount of a dollar to that individual. You have to look at everything and it comes down to how you develop the team, how you nurtured the team and you cultivate the sense of unity amongst the team.
