Steps to Successful Team Building

An organised and highly motivated team can get things done in an effective and efficient way.

By unleashing the well-organized teams in your company, it is possible to benefit from more success in the future.

The robust and efficient team is an essential part of creating the most successful organisations. 

But creating the well-organised groups is not a simple process.

It can take ongoing effort and plan to get them working efficiently as a collective unit, while also keeping them working efficiently for the long-term.

The most successful organisations realise that for a team to function well, they must clearly identify each skill set and give them the job role that is most suitable to their specific abilities.

Plus, it is important that each of the team members can work well together. 

By combining the best team members it is not only possible to achieve superior results, but they can also help to create a sense of solidarity within the organisation.

What are the characteristics of team building?

With the right approach to team building, there is a much greater opportunity of success for the small or large organisation.

Here are seven steps that can help to achieve successful team building:

1) Make sure to organise a formal session that has long term ambitions in place and to fully appreciate how the session goals can lead to success with the long-term ones.

2) Make use of the varied and engaging team activities or exercises that each team member can get involved with, and based on something that all team members can enjoy.

3) Use an activity or exercise that relies on a form of engagement similar to what might take place in the office environment, while also having some relevance to the short-term session goals

4) Identify the type of activity that is closely related to the team approaches and skill sets that are required at the place of work – although it should be something that is unique and creative and doesn't take place in the work environment.

5) Look to hire an independent facilitator to make the team building process more neutral and less of a split between leadership and employees. This helps to provide the level footing and stops the teambuilding process feeling much like a sermon from the top.

6) Use a debriefing process that can quickly highlight the workplace parallels and let the employees realise their learning which avoids the need to preach to the individual workers.

7) Use a proven system to transfer the newly learnt knowledge back to the office environment which can be combined with the debriefing process.

Appreciating the power of teamwork

Before starting a new project, it's important to consider fully what you want to achieve and utilise the most efficient members of the workforce.

When you look at your employees, it is essential to match the specific skills to the different tasks and assignments that need to be completed throughout the project, while also making sure that the personalities can complement each other.

The most successful team can combine the group’s energies and coercion to focus on a common goal.
