How to Make Teams Effective
People in every workplace talk about building the team, working as a team, and my team, but few understand how to create the experience of teamwork or how to develop an effective team.
Belonging to a team, in the broadest sense, is a result of feeling part of something larger than yourself.
It has a lot to do with your understanding of the mission or objectives of your organization.
In a team-oriented environment, you contribute to the overall success of the organization.
You work with fellow members of the organization to produce these results.
Even though you have a specific job function and you belong to a specific department, you are unified with other organization members to accomplish the overall objectives.
The bigger picture drives your actions; your function exists to serve the bigger picture.
Therefore, executives, managers, and organization staff members universally explore ways to improve business results and profitability.
Many view team-based, horizontal organization structures as the best design for involving all employees in creating business success.
Successful team building requires attention to each of the following Twelve Cs.
Clear expectations: Do team members understand why the team was created?
Context: Can team members define their team’s importance to the accomplishment of corporate goals?
Commitment: Do team members perceive their service as valuable to the organization and to their own careers?
Competence: Does the team feel that its members have the knowledge, skill, and capability to address the issues for which the team was formed?
Charter: Has the team taken its assigned area of responsibility and designed its own mission, vision, and strategies to accomplish the mission?
Control: Do team members hold each other accountable for project timelines, commitments, and results?
Collaboration: Do team members cooperate to accomplish the team charter?
Communication: Do team members communicate clearly and honestly with each other?
Creative Innovation: Does the team value creative thinking, unique solutions, and new ideas?
Consequences: Is the organization designing reward systems that recognize both team and individual performance?
Coordination: Are teams coordinated by a central leadership that assists the groups to obtain what they need for success?
Cultural Change: Does the organization recognize that the more it can change its climate to support teams, the more it will receive in pay back from the work of the teams?
Spend time and attention on each of these twelve tips to ensure your work teams contribute most effectively to your business success.
