How to Create a Strong Team

This article is about how to create a strong team from scratch or to rally an already existing one. Your team will cope with things without your efforts.

The Team Is the Most Valuable Thing in the Company

Everyone knows that ‘a fish rots from the head down’ and problems with employees are reflecting the problems of the managers. But not everyone knows what to do with it, how to turn problems into advantages and weaknesses into strengths.

Before forming a team, you need to look closely at those who surround you and correctly assess their potential. It is extremely important to understand in time in which direction employees ‘pull’ your company: to the bottom or to the height of success.

The Overall Goal Is the Overall Result

Common successes and defeats should unite your team. The goal is what really unites. Sometimes an ambitious goal motivates people much more than a charismatic leader. People, who know that the result is common, will help each other. Success breeds success and experienced managers try to provide the team with opportunities for joint success as often as possible. The collective experience of losing will rally the team to move on.

Positive Impulses

Books about management tell that the smallest success of employees should be encouraged. This means you should know how to make flattering remarks about somebody and do it right now. Anyone, who wants to justify a reputation, will overcome himself/herself and grow. But there is another side to the coin: praise relaxes. Therefore, consolidate successes and indicate what else can be improved. Maintain and encourage emotionality. Passion in work involves dedication and partnership.

Such creative solutions, as asking team to compile the best moments of your company into a presentation, are welcome.

Everyone Invests in the Result

How many times during the day do you ask each of your employees to tell their point of view? It’s not even about the fact that in this way you express respect for their knowledge, experience, and competence. In this way, you include them in the process of solving a common problem and making a contribution to a common product.

Everyone Plays a Role and Has a Mission

We do not mean the only specialization. People in the team must be different. Any element of heterogeneity has a symbolic significance for team members.

This is a clear signal that it is permissible not to be a clone and not to fit into the template. The team takes the characteristics of each of the participants, adapts to them, and uses it as an advantage.

Responsibility to Each Other

Perhaps, this is exactly what forces the teams to organize themselves. Knowing that your actions directly affect others and that you can let them down is a powerful incentive and motivation among people who help each other. Expectations are justified when people are given freedom.

The Leader Is the One Who Helps

A crystallized team can become an inexorable force, striving for success, removing obstacles from their path, and clearing the way to success.

Management in the traditional sense is not needed. Help them and empathize with the result, take risks and responsibilities, and they will do everything themselves.
