As a manager, you have complete responsibility of running a team. Right from assigning work to checking progress, you need to handle almost everything in a project. And, it is not sufficient to just get your team members to work. You have to motivate them to become more productive than they are right now.
You can do a lot to help your team members to give their best at work. Motivate them to collaborate effectively, complete their work on time and come up with innovative ideas. You can also use different tools such as collaboration software, time tracking software and task management software to do this.
Remember this quote by Paul J. Meyer - “Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.”
