If not all team members participate in the team-building
process, it may not be effective. Setting rules at the beginning of

expected of them.
Guidelines guide team members on how to interact to ensure
the process is successful. If the team-building process will take
place over a series of sessions, require that team members
attend all sessions.
Require that all team members show respect toward one
another during team-building sessions and define what it means
to show respect.
A consensus on behavioral norms and team processes increases
a team’s ability to stay focused on objectives. This helps teams
develop and agree on rules and procedures that will help the
team function efficiently and productively.

3.4 Trust, Commitment & Loyalty:
The value of building Team Trust, Commitment, and Loyalty
can't be overestimated. Reduced turnover costs are one benefit,
but the ongoing benefit of retaining reliable, experienced
employees on your team is invaluable.
Management experts concede that success in building team
trust, commitment, and loyalty has eroded due to corporate
restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, and the increasing pace
of change. The research shows that trust is such a basic
requirement that without it a company's other benefits and
programs will not significantly raise employee commitment.

punishments to inspire a coordinated work team. Rather they

expectations that allow the team to take responsibility for

relationship between the team leader and team members:
1. Expect Team Members to be Contributors:

to nurture a team environment that
builds the confidence and trust levels
of team members.
Team members must believe that
they can express diverse opinions
without reprisal; that they can make
mistakes without feeling diminished;
and that they will be valued for their

Team members must learn that
they are active players who focus
on getting things done correctly

personalities; and find a common
language to deal with change.
