Good Leaders build strong teams that set the culture for the workplace. It is critical you have a team that knows where its going, how they contribute to your customers and business, and the goals and measures you have in place. Without a good team building plan, your goals and dreams could be at risk. Each team is unique and will respond in different ways. So that is how your team work to achieve your business goals. How do they work together?
Is your team a cohesive group or is it like herding cats? The is where team building is critical. You do not necessarily want a cohesive well run group all the time as some tension will create new solutions. What you do want is a team that has at least some diversity, but can come together when it is important! That is one of the secrets of team building.
Disruptive team members are a minor distraction at best and a resource burning major problem at worst – especially when you are wanting to change and build a new or better culture within your business. Does your team know how to work as a team? How do they deal with conflict and disagreement? What will you do to get effective team building in your business?
