Over the last few months I've had this increasing feeling that my staff's trust in me is begginning to fade. When I first started to realize this, I pulled a couple of my staff members aside and asked them for some feedback. They indicated that they didn't feel they were being communicated with enough, that essentially we hadn't built the relationship.
I then starting racking my brain on how I could communicate better, offer my employees more resources, and become more effective. I found manager-tools and I believe I've started to find some solutions. I'm starting O3's next week and my staff seems hesitant but intrigued.
My question is, I'm re-orging my department to take my 20 direct reports and divided them up among two Team Leaders who will directly report to me. I'm still going through all of the beaurcracy in HR to get this finalized. Once finalized I'm going to have an All Hand's meeting to announce the changes and talk about what this means to our organization. One thing, among many, that I'm concerned about is starting the O3's with everyone and in a few weeks turning them over to the new Team Leads. Does anyone have any recommendations?
