  • 1. TEAM
  • 2. WHAT IS A TEAM? A TEAM IS A GROUP OF PEOPLE WORKING FOR A COMMON OBJECTIVE.
  • 3. Effectiveness of a Team
    • Group work is accomplished best when every one is open and candid.
    • Disagreement and differences are actively brought to the surface in an effective group.
    • The expression of strong feelings are used for group progress.
    • The ability to provide honest praise, support and encouragement are significant characteristics of an effective group.
    • Consensus via free discussion rather than voting or one-man decision is the best way of making decision.
  • 4. Effectiveness of a Team
    • Maximising the use of group resources and team feeling requires bringing ‘the quiet person’ into the discussions.
    • Feeling good about oneself and the others in the group helps to achieve good group work.
    • Sharing or rotating leadership roles (initiating, clarifying, summarising ) aids in group member’s growth.
    • Providing data (feedback to group members about their effectiveness in the group and how they are helping group progress is a must .
    • Group should take time out to examine their own functioning for greater effectiveness .
  • 5. Norms of Working Well Together
    • The group works together towards a common objective which is well understood and shared.
    • Focus on action rather than on blame.
    • Members listen actively to each other. Every idea is given a hearing. Judgement is suspended during idea generation phase.Mutual respect.
    • Give specific feedback with data and examples rather than judgements (Facts and friendly).
    • Active and uniform participation by all.
    • People are free in expressing their feelings as well as their ideas both on the problems being discussed, and on team operation.
  • 6. Norms of Working Well Together
    • Disagreements are not suppressed or overridden, but worked through. Criticism is specific, frank and candid without personal attacks. (Attack problems not people).
    • When action is decided upon, clear responsibilities are allocated and deadlines defined.
    • Informal, comfortable, relaxed atmosphere .
  • 7. 7 Keys to Building Great Work teams
    • 1. COMMITMENT  
    • Commitment to the purpose and values of an organization provides a clear sense of direction.
    • 2. CONTRIBUTION
    • The power of an effective team is in direct proportion to the skills members possess and the initiative members expend. Work teams need people who have strong technical and interpersonal skills and are willing to learn.
    • 3. COMMUNICATION
    • For a work group to reach its full potential, members must be able to say what they think , ask for help, share new or unpopular ideas, and risk making mistakes
    • 4. COOPERATION
    • Effective team member behaviors (follow-through,
    • accuracy, timeliness, creativity, and spirit) may serve as a
    • guide for helping teams identify behaviors that support
    • synergy within the work team.
  • 8. 7 Keys to Building Great Work teams
    • 5. CONFLICT MANAGEMENT  
    • If leaders help work teams to manage conflict effectively, the team will be able to maintain trust and tap the collective power of the team. Work teams manage conflict better when members learn to shift their paradigms (mindsets) about conflict in general, about other parties involved, and about their own ability to manage conflict.
    • 6. CHANGE MANAGEMENT  
    • Leaders should acknowledge any perceived danger in the change and then help teams to see any inherent opportunities. They can provide the security necessary for teams to take risks and the tools for them to innovate;they can also reduce resistance to change by providing vision and information, and by modeling a positive attitude themselves.
    • 7. CONNECTIONS
    • A cohesive work team can only add value if it pays attention to the ongoing development of three important connections: to the larger work organization, to team members, and to other work teams .
