You will learn all about team-building strategies after watching the movie Oceans 11. A good hacker, a loose cannon, a suave smooth-talker, a pickpocket, a killer martial arts…
Ok so not every team is as exciting as a heist movie rat pack, but you can get pretty close with these ideas.
Have you ever wondered why certain teams succeed?
Changing your team’s status quo is a huge part of the equation.
If you don’t embrace new concepts, your team will become less effective at preventing serious problems, responding quickly to issues as they arise, and providing innovative strategies for increased productivity.
Team Building Strategy #1: A good team consists of 6 aspects
1. Goal clarity
2. Strong relationships
3. Healthy conflict management
4. Clear role clarity and expectations
5. Procedures that encourage productivity
6. The energy that exists within the team
All 6 of these aspects need to be part of a successful team.
Team Building Strategy #2: Ask your team for input
I suggest that you take an informal survey by asking your team which aspect is your team’s strength and which one is your team’s weakness.
Make a list of the 6 team-building strategies above and ask your team to rate each one on how they see your team. This simple survey is a great start for some interesting discussions on how to make your team even stronger. It’s an asset for any leader to listen to the needs and opinions of the entire team.
