How to efficiently manage work-flow with your teammates and superiors?

Updated: Jun 11



The best organizations hire people who can help them to grow and stabilize the business. To work for managers, they are always on the lookout for people who are smarter and have a gainful insight. The eminent question of managing work-flow with teammates and superiors will arise among managers. It is naturally a common way through which an organization runs.


Without a proper and harmonious balance with teammates, and superiors, work is often delayed. It can cause a lot of sanguine backlashes and ultimately, no productivity at the end of the day. This prominently creates a negative impact on the work efficiency of the company. Only for the main reason why managers are always finding proper ways to handle team-mates along with superiors.


What do experts have to say?

Wanda Wallace, the President, and CEO of Leadership Forum and even the author of Reaching the Top have said that, when a technical expert is added to an organization, the value increases. But it completely depends on their work balance and how well they can manage with their team leaders.


'The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants doing, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it'- Theodore Roosevelt.


The main job which the managers have to set and meet is the expectations of the supervisors along with their team-mates. Everyone inside the organization is striving to reach the top and if the managers are diligent in handling better cooperatives, it can help them to divulge into goals.



How can managers efficiently handle team-mates along with supervisors?

To handle teammates along with supervisors, the work is laid out into the following phases. Some of the managers follow these phases. Some tend to choose their phase and stick to the result which they think is better.


These phases or steps are given below.


1. Discovering the sweet spot

Every manager inside the organization could find the sweet spot b/w the workflow of their teammates and supervisors. Both are part of the same pyramid but lie adjacently. When managers are able to detect the sweet spot, which helps them to maximize their productivity, the organization can see better results. There are some ways through which it is done. Some of them use uplifting methods which are included in the finances of the company. To do this work, most of the organization asks for uplifting each other mutually.

2. Sharing responsibilities

In line with controlling teammates and supervisors, responsibility delegation is an important part of it. Every manager should understand the need to share the work and responsibility from one person to the other. It helps them to attain goals faster and make better progress. If teammates coordinate with their supervisors well then the company can see figures rising. Every member of the team has to take an opportunity to stand and showcase how the work is done. It is done through supervisors who help teammates to be better, every passing day.



3. Harnessing clear communication

Last but not the least, for every manager to effectively manage teammates and supervisors, harnessing clear communication becomes a necessity. According to a recent survey done by Forbes magazine, about 89% of the organization benefits from being opaque about their needs. Humans, of course, are indecisive creatures. Every single step they take is based on the basic probabilities on their mind. This is why harnessing clear communication helps everyone to stand tall. It deletes the odd and clears out the miscommunication in the air.

How does seeking council can help every member to be better?

Counseling is a part of a communicative way through which managers can understand the pleading of their workers. Be it, supervisors or teammates, it depends on how they feel while working inside the organization. Like the same way, counseling helps everyone to understand the need of each other.



If the manager councils the teammates, they will understand what both need. If the supervisors can communicate then everyone understands the goal of the company. It helps the supervisors to properly delegate the tasks, rightly on time. There is no level of miscommunication which can be spread later.
