Communicate well with each other
Communicate openly with each other, sharing thoughts, opinions and ideas; as well as taking into consideration what other have to say. Communication is essential for keeping track of progress and working together efficiently on Tasks/Goals.
Focus on goals and results
Work out a plan on how to achieve these objectives, as a team. This provides us with clear direction and gives us something to aim for.
Everyone contributes their fair share
Each team member contributes their fair share of the workload and fully understand what their responsibilities is and where they fit in.
Offer each other support
Team members should always be happy to assist others when they need a helping hand with work. Teams are often more productive when they are also offered support from Management.
Team members are diverse
Everyone is unique and will be able to offer their own experiences and knowledge that others may not possess. Diversity is needed so that all of the required skills are covered by somebody in the team and each individual can be assigned a particular role on the basis of their strengths and skills.
A strong team usually have a leader that they trust and respect. This individual essentially works as the glue holding the team together and should be responsible for setting the pace, offers encouragement and motivation and keeps all members of the team updated.
Organisation is essential for the smooth running of a business. Without it the workplace can become chaotic and goals are unlikely to be achieved. Though each individual should be responsible for organising their own workload, management should ensure that everything is running according to plan and each member of the team is getting their work completed efficiently. Holding regular meetings helps to make sure that everyone is on the same page and deadlines are being met.
A strong team is the foundation of a successful business
