Team Build:

When putting together a new team there are a lot of critical factors that can hinder progress towards creating a successful and productive team. It is crucial that you build a strong foundation from the start, failure in this can lead to problems arising such as; distance between people, poor communication, poor delegation, lack of trust and so on. If you are able to start strong with introducing good communication and being pro-active towards making sure everyone in the team feels comfortable with how work is being delegated it can be the first stepping stone to creating a great team.

 

Team Bond:

The next key factor in maintaining a successful team is ensuring that everyone in the team has a strong bond with each other. This promotes trust, communication, teamwork and many other benefits. If your team clashes in any way or there are disputes between people or groups it can have massive negative implications upon work productivity, satisfaction and overall cohesion within the team. It is vital that you are able to keep your team well bonded so that when any conflict or disputes do arise they can be quickly talked through and resolved without any lasting grudges or negativity.

Team Develop:

Finally it is important to remember to develop your team’s skills, not only as individuals but as a whole. Once settled into roles it’s easy to become comfortable, however it’s important to move team members out of their comfort zones and set them the challenge to take on areas they might not be as strong in. Doing so will push the development of their own skills but can also give team members an insight and appreciation of work roles that typically other members of the team would take on.

 

By utilising the three critical factors above you can ensure that you have the best chances at creating a good synergy within your team and a productive work environment.
