How to Develop the Ownership of Project Members?
Paseka Ramokoatsi, Project Manager, Lesotho

I am managing a team of 14 people and am so much trying or willing to make them have ownership of this project we are working on. I wish to "retire early" before the project end so that I can come back to buy it when it phases out.
My worry now is that my team members still have an employee attitude or characteristics, and are not willing to develop at least an intrapreneurship spirit. Please help guys!

Incentives and Honesty Will Win the Day
Mark Holt, Manager, United States
First, with trusted persons, be clear with your intentions. Explain what you want to do so you don't appear dishonest.
Second, create incentives for them to take ownership. Arrange to have positive reviews or meetings with their managers, if they agree to assume leadership of part of the project.
Third, find small steps in the project that can be team-building moments. For example, if 2 or 3 workers could join together and succeed on solving a problem, or create a solution, and then make it public to celebrate the win. It doesn't have to be big, but has to be a real success, not fake.
Good luck.
