Having an effective Team is essential to success. Putting together a talented group is just the first step in creating a successful team. You must invest some time and resources into building effective teamwork.
To establish an effective team, you must be willing to recognize and reward good teamwork.
Here are 4 Steps For Effective Team Building:
- Create a culture that rewards team goals
- Respond to team members immediately regarding team-related projects
- Reward employees who contribute to individual and team goals
- Respect your fellow employees
Remember that building effective teams starts by establishing a common vision, creating communication and collaboration while establishing accountability.
Good teamwork is about relationships. It’s about each team member understanding his/her role and contribution to the group and feeling valued for the part they play in helping the team succeed. When relationships are respectful, valuing and positive, passion and motivation naturally follow.
Although skeptical at first, Inc.com reports Metal Mafia, embarked on half-day scavenger hunt to effectively build their team. The hunt’s team-building activities were set up so that each team member would have to perform some of the tasks of the opposite team members’ regular duties. In addition, they would have to rely on one another to complete tasks. Understanding other team members responsibilities created a new found appreciation and Metal Mafia is beginning to see small changes since the team building activity.
If a scavenger hunt isn’t your thing, you could try an Insights Team Dynamics Program. This program helps team members gain a unique insight into who they are and who their team members are and enables the group to explore how relationships can be optimized. This is achieved by examining individual style, team dynamics and the various inter-relationships between group members.
In the past, I have seen companies also conduct team building activities with Habitat for Humanity, Food Kitchens and other local community organizations.
