According to Salesforce, 73% of sales teams say that cross-departmental collaboration is imperative to the sales process—yet 70% of customer experience professionals see silo mentality as their biggest obstacle. Sounds painful.
Silos, which can improve efficiency within specific areas, nonetheless hinder collaboration, innovation, productivity, and (ironically) organizational efficiency—all key facets of successful businesses. And whether your organization’s silos are the result of a hyper-focus on efficiency, turf-battles, or poorly executed organizational structures,, the effects are sharp.
Learn the one behavior you should introduce within your organization to bring efficiency and clarity to remote work.
Stop, in the name of execution, before you overburden and burn out your employees!
OK, the bad song parodies end there. And some advice on simplifying work to increase productivity and efficiency—and reduce preventable stress—starts here. Instead of creating mountains out of what should probably be molehills, do these 5 things:
As Project Managers—whether that’s your official title or the role you’re playing on a major initiative—it can be annoying and stressful to constantly chase people down, ask why things are late, or point the finger in status meetings. (Unless you’re someone who enjoys the shame game, which is a topic for another time.) It also isn’t fun having to play bad cop as a manager, and repeatedly call out where your employees are running late and/or missing the mark. Not to mention, the time-consuming aspect of finding the evidence required to explain what they probably already know but could push back on if you didn’t have documented proof points.
We’re all in this together, chasing the same project deadline. Neither side wants confrontation or difficult conversations. So, wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to be the one sending reminder emails, calling out at ball-droppers, and nagging about the effects of delayed work?

“Do you want to meet in the conference room today?”
Let me start this off with a caveat: I love a checklist. Nothing brings me greater joy than marking a task off my to-do list. I have notebooks and whiteboards filled with lists for everything from my monthly Costco run to reading lists to weekend chores.
