Team Dynamics

How would you describe the team dynamics at your organization?

In order for organizations to accomplish anything on a large scale, they must have teams of people who work effectively as a unit and collaboratively with other teams. If you’ve never given any thought to managing team dynamics, you’re missing out on an area in which a little attention could make a significant improvement in organizational performance.

Effective team dynamics and team leadership can make the difference in your organization’s ability to achieve strategic goals in a timely manner. Team communication coaching from experienced team dynamics coaches can help your organization build and sustain the highly effective teams that are critical to how your organization performs.

Effective teams start with confident team vision.

In order for a team to be effective, you must first establish expectations of team leadership. What is the shared vision of success for this team and how will they go about getting there? Will there be one leader? Will all members take a leadership role as the situation requires it?

Teams are made up of individuals who have egos and agendas of their own, so a team leadership model and ground rules must be created, acknowledged and accepted by every team member before the team does anything together. Neglecting this first step is a common error that leads to a spiraling lack of productivity if left unchecked. Conversely, taking time to establish a strong team foundation is a hallmark of high performing teams.

Effective team communication begins with a leader who can build trust among team members.

In order to get individuals to abandon individual needs in deference to the needs of the team, the leadership of the team has to create an environment of trust and respect. When trust is established early in the life cycle of the team, characteristics of that team will include increased efficiency, greater unity and reciprocal motivation – all of which contribute to the effectiveness of the team in meeting your strategic goals and beating the competition.
