  • 1. To Build Teamwork brings success, workable team brings more successes
  • 2. Like Henry Ford said, " Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. What are we waiting for, " Let's come together, keep together and work together to be successful in personal and professional life.
  • 3. “None of us is as smart as all of us.” –- Ken Blanchard
  • 4. Before you can start team building in the workplace, you need to understand what it really means to work as a team. It is also very important that everyone else on the team understands the meaning of teamwork. Work together to achieve this in order to further the accomplishments of your team. Here are the presentations to explain “36 Ways to Grow The Successful Working Team.”
  • 5. 1) First of All, Knowing Your People : If you are a leader in the organization and you want to develop teamwork, you need to have a good understanding of your people. Spend time with them. Talk to them. This way, you will come to understand what they care for individually. You will also discover what makes them come alive. That is very important if you wish to win them over and initiate an organization that uses teamwork to its fullest potential! Teamwork: Simply stated, it is less me and more we.
  • 6. 2) Bringing people together : When they start working and feel the pressure, you will be surprised at the level of effectiveness and efficiency that they will bring to the group. Spread good performers, the average people and the bad performers evenly. This way, you can maximize the strengths and weaknesses of each member of the teams. The result will be a kaleidoscope of perspective that will enrich the overall performance of the organization. TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More
  • 7. 3) Choosing The Right Persons To Be Team Members : Each person should be given the responsibility for handling a proper situation. If all members will interfere in every aspect of the work being done, then it may lead to ruin the output of the team. These are the facts that you should look at while concerning about teamwork or else your team work can lead the way to downward. So be cautious while choosing good team members. Coming together, sharing together, working together, succeeding together.
  • 8. 4) Forming The Strong Team : In the initial stages of team development, management needs to establish clear ground rules and responsibilities that give the team its sense of purpose. These management actions will help to remove the inevitable confusion and anxiety that normally exists as team members first get to know each other. “ The era of the rugged individual is giving way to the era of the team player. Everyone is needed, but no one is necessary.” - Bruce Coslet, Coach, Bengals
  • 9. 5) Team composition : Effective teamwork requires good team composition. A project team usually consists of a team leader, a deputy and several people with expertise in different areas. At times, there are also consultants who provide the team with the information they need to complete their project or deliver the service they promised to deliver. This is why, the leaders and managers of the organization need to ensure that a team is composed of diverse people who are willing to work with others. “ Effective teamwork will not take the place of knowing how to do the job or how to manage the work. Poor teamwork, however, can prevent effective final performance. And it can also prevent team members from gaining satisfaction in being a member of a team and the organization.” - Robert F. Bales
  • 10. 6) Previewing The Behavior of All Members : One of the factors leading to bad teamwork is that the team members do not participate as much everyone does. Some members may have attitude problems for which the team has suffer. If necessary, a recommendation from peers and supervisors may be sought for this purpose. “Teamwork represents a set of values that encourage behaviors such as listening and constructively responding to points of view expressed by others, giving others the benefit of the doubt, providing support to those who need it, and recognizing the interests and achievements of others.” - Katzenbach & Smith
  • 11. 7) Storming The Team : Managers need to calm any disagreements and smooth out the jockeying for status and position that can occur. Management therefore needs to spend time addressing any concerns or issues and to stress the advantages of teamwork in increasing overall sales performance and in providing opportunities for individual development. Getting good players is easy. Getting them to play together is the hard part. Casey Stengel
  • 12. 8) Not allowing personal issues to play a role in your team : If you do, it will quickly tear your team apart and you will find more failure than success. Even though you want your team to feel comfortable and personable with one another, you cannot allow it to get to the point where drama and personal emotions are interfering with the professional atmosphere. Co-operation must be emphasized through team building exercises so that everyone understands how important it is. Wearing the same shirts doesn't make you a team - Buchholz and Roth
  • 13. 9) Having One Common Goal : Hence, there must be one common goal for the group and each individual act should complement the actions of the other members of the team and vice versa. Each member of the team must be able to sacrifice whatever personal views and interests he may have for the interest and efficiency of the team. It does not mean though that you should lose your identity as a person. What it means is that making the team more effective goes beyond whatever you can achieve individually. When we have a sense of community and focus, we create trust and can help each other to achieve our goals.
  • 14. 10) Laying Out A Timeline of The Project : A timeline needs to be laid out at the beginning of business teamwork when starting a project. Everyone needs to know specific deadlines that pertain to them and when they need to have their tasks accomplished. This sets goals in place for people to work toward and it gives each person a focus. If there is not an end date in site, then employees tend to slack. You might even consider moving the deadlines up a bit to see if you can get employees to speed up their work. This allows for more efficiency and ending a project not only on time but before the deadline. A goal is a dream with a deadline. - Napoleon Hill
  • 15. 11) Developing Teamwork Requires Commitment : It is a two-way street. The managers and leaders have to take the lead and the employees have to respond. This way, there will be cohesiveness and better harmony in the organization. When that is done, the employees can simply come together, talk and pursue the goals of the organization. They can also become more loyal to the organization in this way. “ Individual commitment to a group effort — that is what makes a team work a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” - Vince Lombardi (1913-1970), football coach for the NFL
  • 16. 12) Giving The Direction : The team has begun to settle down and to establish its way of working. The managers can now begin to exploit the increasing cohesiveness of the team and explain how it should move towards the achievement of specific objectives. If we had as much sense as geese we would stay in formation with those headed where we want to go. We are willing to accept their help and give our help to others.
  • 17. 13) Sharing Information : When a team has reached this stage in its development, it can handle even greater levels of pressure and performance and should be stretched for higher levels of achievement. The management at this stage of the team's development should push for even more opportunity and information sharing and should create even more important sales projects for the team to work on. A team is more than a collection of people. It is a process of give and take. - Barbara Glacel & Emile Robert Jr.
  • 18. 14) Controlled By Personal Accountability : The issue of control may be a touchy one for some people. But really, without any means of control, a team can easily degenerate to chaos and effective teamwork will simply become an impossible dream. Teamwork control does not rest only on the team leader or his/her deputy. It is better for the team members to be accountable to each other. This way, they can ensure better performance and top class act. That is teamwork at its best. A group becomes a team when each member is sure enough of himself and his contribution to praise the skills of the others.
  • 19. 15) Empowering The Team : Making your employees feel like they are a valuable part of the team. Everyone needs to receive positive feedback at times so that they understand that they are an important, contributing team player. Empowering your employees is something that every team leader and employer needs to know how to do. It will make a world of difference and if anything, you will find that it only increases and enhances the strength of your team member which in turn improves the whole team. “An empowered organization is one in which individuals have the knowledge, skill, desire, and opportunity to personally succeed in a way that leads to collective organizational success.”
  • 20. 16) Addressing The Problems Within The Team right away : Depending on the situation, it may be best to sort out the issues with the entire team present. Working out the issues together can create a stronger sense of camaraderie. If the issues are illegal or personal in any manner, take care to address it so that nobody feels unfairly judged or exposed. No problem is insurmountable. With a little courage, teamwork and determination a person can overcome anything. B. Dodge
  • 21. 17) Collaboration : At the heart of effective teamwork is collaboration. People come together to pursue a common goal. And they share their thoughts, their expertise and their very lives so that they can achieve the tasks at hand. This is collaboration. People willing to share, communicate and even challenge each other. Without collaboration, there can be no teamwork. “ The strength of the team is each individual member...the strength of each member is the team.” - Coach Phil Jackson Chicago Bulls
  • 22. 18) Having A Charter : Charter, while not totally necessary, helps the team decide its identity and clarify its vision, mission and goals. Sure, the broader organization has these. But once the team comes together, having a charter can clarify expectations and leave no questions unanswered as to why the team is created in the first place. Understand this law and you will then know, beyond room for the slightest doubt, that you are constantly punishing yourself for every wrong you commit and rewarding yourself for every act of constructive conduct in which you indulge. - Napoleon Hill
  • 23. 19) Communication : Imagine a team whose members communicate? Sure, they talk during team meetings and then work afterwards but they fail to update each other and fail to seek counsel together. Such a team is on the verge of failure. When there is openness and free communication in the team, it is easier to get things done. It is therefore the job of the leader to facilitate open communication. Bad human communication leaves us less room to grow. - Rowan D. Williams
  • 24. 20) Brainstorming For Creative Ideas : We all have different skills, knowledge and personal attributes. By utilizing all of these different aspects in a team, more ideas can be generated. As more ideas are generated, more creative solutions are generated, leading to better results. “Conflict is inevitable in a team ... in fact, to achieve synergistic solutions, a variety of ideas and approaches are needed. These are the ingredients for conflict.” - Susan Gerke, IBM, Leadership Development
  • 25. 21) Including Those Who Have An Imagination In The Team : It might surprise you that some of the most successful people are those that have the biggest imagination. Always add a person with a big imagination to a team so they can give their input. Make sure you put an inventive person with an imaginative counterpart. Someone always had an idea before the things around you that you use everyday without thinking about them were created. The ideas that come out of most brainstorming sessions are usually superficial, trivial, and not very original. They are rarely useful. The process, however, seems to make uncreative people feel that they are making innovative contributions and that others are listening to them. - A Harvey Block
  • 26. 22) Creating Problem Solving Environment : Problem-solving is a creative skill that is very important. A problem solver can help a team when they are in a bind. A problem solver can come up with resources when a business is out of funding to buy more. He or she can find ways to use the current resources within a company. They can think of ways to handle and deal with problems in a creative way. A problem solver is a good asset for business teamwork. Thomas Edison, when asked why he had a team of twenty-one assistants, “If I could solve all the problems myself, I would.”
  • 27. 23) Building Climate of Working Satisfaction : Lack of job satisfaction is often one of the key things highlighted in surveys of employees. Individuals working together as a team to achieve a common goal are continually developing. As they interact more energy and enthusiasm is created. When this energy is utilized, it produces results which positively impacts on motivation and leads to even more success. The Importance of Encouragement : We need to make sure our honking is encouraging. In groups and teams where there is encouragement, production is much greater. 'Individual empowerment results from quality honking'
  • 28. 24) Building fun with business teamwork : Especially if the group is working on a difficult project that requires some serious brainwork. People tend to get frustrated on big projects. Create a fun environment so all of the people feel involved and appreciated by management and their team members. This might include a company luncheon, a business trip, or even a team retreat at a ski resort. Fun is only real and sustainable if it feeds off the team's purpose and performance aspirations. - Katzenbach & Smith
  • 29. 25) Connecting The Good Ideas of The Team : Bringing ideas together is a big asset to business teamwork. A person with the ability to make connections is another creative piece of business teamwork that allows the team to bring ideas together. Some people in the team may have completely different ideas. A person with the ability to make connections can take those ideas and help bring them into one product. The iPhone was created with two ideas; a cell phone and a computer. The way to get good ideas is to get lots of ideas, and throw the bad ones away. ~Linus Pauling
  • 30. 26) Pooling The Resources And Sharing All The Skills Together : Even the best qualified individual cannot have all of the skills to do everything. Some people excel at coming up with the ideas. Others love the detail while there are those that focus on the big picture. There are others who can be counted on when it comes to implementing and follow through of a plan. The key point is that when a team works together, it has a huge range of skills available that it can utilize to deliver extraordinary results. “Pooling resources and working as a team will always beat individual Performers”
  • 31. 27) Splitting Tasks To Build Up Speed : Imagine that you have a project that needs research, pulling together a proposition, financing it, implementing it and delivering specific benefits. If one person was allocated this task, it could take months and maybe years to make it happen. By splitting up the project, work can move forward in parallel and the ultimate goal achieved faster. Teamwork divides the task and doubles the success. I
  • 32. 28) Acting As A Sounding Board : We all have a range of options open to us. If we are trying to figure out what is best, we might never move forward. In a team situation, other team members can act as a sounding board, allowing us to cut through the options and get on with those most likely to achieve the desired goal. A person or group whose reactions to an idea, opinion, or point of view serve as a measure of its effectiveness or acceptability.
  • 33. 29) Meeting The Team To Review The Work Progress : The manager has a responsibility with business teamwork to determine if the group has a healthy relationship or if not everyone is getting along. Meetings will give the manager an opportunity to recognize progress and if the team is working well together. If there are personality issues or conflicts, they can be resolved quickly or teams can be reorganized. Meetings allow a manager to help the team approach issues for the project. Synergy is the highest activity of life; it creates new untapped alternatives; it values and exploits the mental, emotional, and psychological differences between people. - Stephen Covey
  • 34. 30) Supporting Team All The Times (24/7) : It is amazing the amount of camaraderie that is created in teams, especially when the going gets tough. People will often go to what seems like extreme lengths when they know that they can rely on the support, empathy, understanding, and encouragement of the team. Never underestimate the significance of this in achieving results. Teams are successful when they are focused, have a short cycle time, and are supported by the executives. - Tom Bouchard
  • 35. 31) Measuring Teamwork Performance Continually : Teams have an amazing potential to increase the productivity of the organization. But teamwork performance has to be measured regularly so as to ensure that these teams are truly working for the benefit of the organization. You have to work toward protecting the interests of the team members while delivering excellent results! That is the sure way to excellent teamwork performance. “It is an immutable law in business that words are words, explanations are explanations, promises are promises but only performance is reality. - Harold S. Geneen
  • 36. 32) Adjusting The Team According To Changes : It is common for teams to lose their effectiveness over time. This is because individuals come and go and due to changes in the business environment. Such changes provide management with the opportunity to reinvigorate the team with new members or to set it new tasks and objectives in order to renew team effectiveness. The key elements in the art of working together are how to deal with change, how to deal with conflict, and how to reach our potential...the needs of the team are best met when we meet the needs of individuals persons. Max DePree
  • 37. 33) Willing To Assist Other Team Members To Complete All Portions of Tasks : Attributes an employee needs to have to be a productive member on a team are the ability to be a team player and possess the knowledge and skills necessary to complete their assigned portion of the work task. After completion of their portion, the employee should be willing to assist other team members with completion of all work tasks until the project is completed. When a team outgrows individual performance and learns team confidence, excellence becomes a reality. - Joe Paterno
  • 38. 34) Rewards should be granted to effective teams : Most people understand rewards. More than punishment, rewards should be used. Punishment will only worsen things and bring down the morale of the people in the organization. Of course, there will be times that punishment is necessary and called for. But rewards are far better at increasing productivity and developing teamwork. “The highest reward for a man's toil is not what he gets for it but what he becomes by it.”
  • 39. 35) Sharing The Outcomes Together : Being a team means sharing the responsibility. That is why it is also important to share both losses and victories. A team has to remain a team whether they are winning or losing. It is in the support of one another that you can all learn by experience and grow together as a team. Understanding teamwork is necessary for any and every business that hopes to benefit from it. Teams share the burden and divide the grief. - Doug Smith
  • 40. 36) Success should be celebrated : Business teamwork requires recognition of an accomplished project or employees will not feel appreciated. It is always best to provide constructive group praise and not just individual praise. Don't recognize the project manager alone but the entire team as a whole for a project well done. When everyone feels they are an important factor in the success of a project, they will be motivated to work on the next Synergy — the bonus that is achieved when things work together harmoniously. - Mark Twain
  • 41. Teamwork is crucial Don't think it miniscule It means everything To accomplish anything It's called cooperation. TEAM is an acronym The meaning enlightening Together Everybody Accomplishes More Therefore We should learn To work together Not be hard as leather Nor soft as a feather Not be critical and cold Neither shun being bold Don't beat me down To the dirty ground Discover technological brilliance Engineer and build a Mercedes Benz Legislate new laws and adherence Place people over proud pretense. Get some collective societal sense Whence you can make a few pence Thence we can rejoice and dance Fearlessly take a chance and advance Kindly forgive, forget, and be resilient Overcome being emotionally buoyant Elegantly articulate being verbally fluent Prefer, get along, and be considerate Us, over me, as we show sensitivity Less of me, more of we triumphantly Teamwork makes us undefeatable Our energy can be indefatigable Resources multiply indefinable Profound intelligence undebatable Care and compassion supernatural Mightily power increases exponential A team is invaluable and monumental Together for us nothing is impossible. But don't flatter me And thereby deny me From being all I could be I certainly do need thee. We undoubtedly can't be All that we were meant to be Without a collaborative effort A hearty commitment to exert Ourselves together fully Or drive each other crazy Produce peaceably collectively Or perish pathetically individually Teamwork is the key consistently The most important ingredient The sustaining saving solvent Stay together against deterrence Improve the national defense Unite and pledge allegiance Take rest. Don't be so intense. Live together in communities dense Paul Davis , a FL real estate professional, life coach (relational & professional), worldwide minister, and change master.
