Building confident task teams
There are many routes to building confident work teams. Most of the time, senior executives have the worries about good people with them, and majority of them get success if they did something different to mend it.
Whether you are working with a new team, or an established already well-functioning team, the guidelines included in this blog can support you in building an even stronger, focused, more cohesive team. Building confident, cohesive, well-functioning teams is an ongoing focus for managers.
Although often managers “inherit” the teams with which they work, rather than start them from scratch, the same rules apply:
Recognize that teams go through various evolution stages: Define your team’s roles and responsibilities early on. Make sure you to take the lead in this.
Have a clearly defined mission: – Provide direction and purpose to the team. Say what your objectives are and where you want the team to go.
Define clear roles and hire for fit: Explore the handoffs and how current processes help or hinder their success. Hire additions to staff whose values mirror those of your group
Define and share your team-specific “ground rules” or terms of engagement: Do this as soon as you can so people know what to expect and what your standards are.
Provide a vehicle for teambuilding: As well as taking this on yourself, delegate the “Teambuilding” responsibilities to some people in your time also. Like a “social secretary” for organizing team night outs.
Lead your group: You don’t need to start this, you should be doing this ALL of the time! List down all of the things that you can do to make sure that this happens. No teams ever thrived without untiring efforts from the leader. ( www.thegrowthevangelist.com )
