What Effective Teaming Looks Like

Advancements in technology have seen a wide range of automated functions. However, one thing that will never change is the need for efficient, coordinated, and strong teams.

Accelerating reality in many businesses requires teaming which is continuously and in real-time thinking about the bigger picture. Teaming is essential to improving outcomes and is becoming more valuable to organizations than ever before.

Organizations must now pursue continual improvement across a wide range of functions, driven by customers, partners, suppliers, and investors. Teaming now requires more than a conscious willingness to innovate. An effective team must have several “building blocks” in place.

1. Clear objectives

Having a set of clear objectives is the basis for selecting a team. There are mutually agreed aims and objectives, and everyone has a clear understanding of overall goals. The objectives also help to decide the members of the team.

2. Balanced roles

There is a good balance of skills, abilities, and aspirations. Team members have a clear understanding of each individual’s role in achieving overall team objectives. This is important so that they can complement each other and work better as a team.

3. Effective processes

There are good processes for making, communicating, implementing, and reviewing decisions. There are also effective information systems and solid coordination of resources.

4. Good communication

Meetings are productive and there is effective communication up, down, and across the organization. Without proper communication and interaction, teams cannot function.

5. Appropriate leadership

The team trusts the team leader and feels that he or she is leading in an appropriate way. It is important to choose the right leader that everyone can follow. Without good leadership, some members on the team might begin to feel like the project to moving toward chaos.

6. Support and trust

People help each other by listening, evaluating, offering ideas, encouraging experimentation, and giving support. Without these five elements, teams won’t be able to function.
