The Top Ten Methods to Create a Successful Work Team
Teams are often useful in situations where the task cannot be completed individually or if the task requires working interdependently. However, a successful team requires thought and planning. Too often, a group of individuals is simply thrown together, given a mandate, "marching orders" and then told, "Now go make us proud!"
To create an effective work team, defined outcomes, common goals and correct skills are keys to success. Here are ten methods to create a successful work team.
1. Create a common, shared (team) goal.
2. Have measurable outcomes.
3. Promote interdependency.
4. Help the team to understand and appreciate differences.
5. Make sure team members have the right skills.
6. Train and then follow up on training.
7. Spell out lines of communication.
8. Continually stress the team's purpose.
9. Provide detailed agendas for team meetings.
10. Be a model.
