Building Effective Work Teams
The Importance of Teamwork
In order for any business to succeed, it is crucial to have a talented and dedicated workforce able to work together in order to carry out the company's vision. Because a business can only ever be as good as its team, creating efficient and motivated teams is imperative for any organization.
In order for a business to succeed, and a team to work together successfully, there must be a clear vision defined at the outset. It is important for leaders to effectively communicate to their team what they expect and hope for the business. It is also crucial that leaders clearly outline what they expect from their employees; when everyone works towards common goals, it makes it easier to assign clear responsibilities. Ideally, all responsibilities assigned should include measurable expected results, in order to ensure that objectives are being met effectively.
Team Member Characteristics
A competent team constitutes of members with the knowledge, skills and capability to accomplish the business mission. Whilst assigning responsibilities, it is imperative to identify the strengths of each team member. Doing so maximizes productivity and inspires employee confidence in his/her ability to succeed. Identifying individual strengths ensures that everyone is given a job role that they believe they can do well and this keeps them motivated and driven to succeed, and ultimately loyal to the team.
Every team member should have a sense of commitment to achieving the organization's mission and expected outcomes. Team members should consider their services to be valuable to the organization and to their own careers. Simultaneously, leaders should ensure that they provide their team with the correct resources, strategies and support needed in order for everyone to work efficiently.
