As a Navy SEAL, our mindset is driven in part by our creativity, adaptability, and thinking out of the box mindset. These principles enforce the efficiency and productivity of the operator and that of the entire SEAL team. Practicing these same principles can enforce your own productivity in life and business.
Inc. brings us 9 ways that can be used in business to be as productive as a Navy SEAL.
1. Get the right team members. Without self-discipline and accountability, no process will work. First and foremost, your team members must embrace the organization’s values. You must recruit, train, and promote people on the basis of those values.
2. Clearly define roles. Once you have the right team, you need to make sure each person is sitting in the right seat, by clearly defining each person’s role and leaving some room for evolution. When people know exactly what is expected of them and how they will be judged, your team’s efficiency and morale will improve.
3. Eliminate overlap. Inefficiencies are created when resources aren’t allocated properly and overlap exists between internal teams. If you’re overstaffed or have poorly defined roles creating these inefficiencies, do something about it.
