There are many advantages of taking the time to build a good team and below are just some to consider.
Collaboration – working together towards a common goal is not always easy especially when there are many different personalities involved. This is made even more difficult if the said personalities are strong and forceful. Therefore it is necessary to be able to tap into each individual’s positive attributes and provide some form of control over the negative ones to ensure a comfortable collaboration can be formed among the participating team members.
Communication – often taken for granted this very important aspect of any exercise where the participation of more than one individual is expected, the communication lines must be open at all times and very clear. Failing to address the matter of effective communication skill will severely damage the desired collaborative effectiveness of the team.
Commitment – when the entire is completely committed to the successful achievement of the goal set, there is a better chance of producing the best results possible. Commitment levels of each participating member may differ and this should be addressed to ensure the disparity does not work against the team.
Accountability – all the members of the team should be held accountable for their respective contributions to the project. This should be done periodically to ensure any possible disruptions can be avoided before detrimental effects are evident. If there are issues that are difficult to handle then the support of others should be sought to help eradicate the situation before it becomes a problem.
