Use apps to become a great boss by inspiring and motivating your team. Keep them happy and hardworking by improving your skills as a team leader.
Have you ever had a job that wasn’t really all that great? The pay was below average, the work itself wasn’t that interesting, but your boss and the people you work with created a really good environment. So, you ended up working there a lot longer than you should have. Having a great boss is crucial to the happiness and longevity of a person’s job and the success of the company. You need to learn what it takes to be a good boss to run a successful business and apps can help you get there. Characteristics of a great boss should include being a mentor and learning how to motivate people. The best way to learn how to motivate others is to start on a positive and motivated path. Therefore, you can download apps like Think Up to start your day off with positive affirmations at home, then bring them to work and build your team up with positivity. A good boss listens to their employees and considers their ideas or issues. Take the time to have an open dialogue with your team by using apps that use messaging systems like Slack or apps that make it easy for your team to schedule meetings with you like Doodle.
Another part of being a good boss is getting employees to work as a team to complete projects and achieve great results for the company. To keep productivity and positivity high, you should have all of your employees feel like they are a part of the task management team. You can easily accomplish this with apps like Wunderlist or Trello which keeps everyone up to speed with the tasks that are currently being worked on, what's next in the project goals, when certain parts of the project should be done, and when meetings will be held. These and other task management apps allow everyone on the team to communicate and be involved in the life of the project from start to finish. Also, It helps each person on the team stay accountable for their contribution and therefore helps boost productivity.
Another great supervisor trait is overseeing time management and making sure everyone is on the right track. Whether you and your team are starting on a new project or you are trying to see where hours are being wasted working on certain activities, you can use time management apps to help your down time decrease and your productivity soar. If you download an app that allows you to check the amount of time you or a team member work on a specific task, you can see how long it takes and whether it is an efficient use of time or where the task can be improved to achieve better results. You can get your team to download Forest, an app that helps you focus on tasks, lets you blacklist sites to limit down time, and turns task completion into a victory. These types of time management tools can be extremely useful for those who tend to procrastinate. It forces them to focus on the task at hand, and doesn't allow them to stray to sites that stop them from focusing on their work.
