  2. 2. 1.Recruit the right person for the right position Team building starts with selecting and recruiting the right person for the right position. During the selection procedure find out their attitude, skills, interest and experience as they fit to the predefined position. Assign jobs as per their competencies and interest, they will feel contented and will work enthusiastically. If you assign jobs which they don’t love or don’t match to their skill level then they will feel uncomfortable and there is a chance to leave their employment.
  3. 3. 2.Set a clear target for your team In a team, a group of people work together to achieve a common goal. So you should set a clear and challenging goal for your team. If you just ask them to follow it will not work over there. You should communicate that goal in such a way that it becomes the common goal of the whole team Every team members of your team should know what they are going to achieve, why they should do it and how they will do it. It will inspire them to put their best effort to reach their destination. .
  4. 4. 3.Clearly define their job responsibilities For smooth functioning of your team every tasks should be distributed properly among your team members as per their competencies. If it is not done properly many tasks will be left undone. So define individual’s job responsibility clearly as they know their roles in the team and what should they do to achieve team target. This will give them the freedom to work independently. It will also help you to monitor individual participation and progress to keep the team on track.
  5. 5. 4. Take initiative to improve capabilities of your team members After recruitment your first job is to develop your team members as they can do their job independently. You should identify the development areas of your team members for the job they are assigned. You can arrange formal training sessions to develop their technical knowledge and skills level as they can smoothly operate their daily tasks. You should also do on the job training, regular coaching and counselling to change their perception, attitude and motivation level.
  6. 6. 5.Create a congenial working environment Build a friendly working environment as employees enjoy their work. A stress free condition will increase their productivity. Be open to accept any suggestion and complaint from your team members. Show genuine interest to solve their problems. Give due appreciation to the achievers. Be fair in giving appraisal. Help your employees whenever they face any difficulties. Ensure freedom of work. Don’t allow conspiracy in the team. These will help you to create a healthy environment in the team.
  7. 7. 6.Resolve conflict effectively When a group of people work together; chance of arising conflict is not unlikely. Besides, a certain degree of conflict in the team increases productivity. But if it exceeds the limit it may destroy the whole team. So it should be handled immediately. Don’t give temporary solution, identify the root cause of conflict and resolve it. If conflict persists for longer period of time it destroy the team spirit and employee’s moral to fight together.
  8. 8. 7.Encourage social get together In the office people have to maintain certain formalities, so it is very difficult for them to maintain relationship at personal level. Inspires them to get together outside your office, this will give them the opportunity to meet others in a free environment. It gives relives from routine office life for a certain period of time. When people know each other in personal level, they feel comfortable to work together. It also create a sense of security and helps to decreases the rate of employee turnover. It help to improve interpersonal relationship among team members.
  9. 9. 8.Celebrate success Celebrating your success means you are recognizing your team members for their achievement. It will rejuvenate the whole team and will motive your team members to achieve another milestones. It will help you bring the whole team together to move forward. Ensure that every member can participate in the celebration; they will feel important being part of it. It will also assist you to build more personal connection with your team members.
  10. 10. 9.Don’t allow poor performers to stay in the team It is not possible to get equal contribution from all team members but everybody should maintain at least an acceptable range. I saw in many cases some employees performs below average month after month but management doesn’t take any action against them. They pull down the whole team. You have to identify the causes of their poor performance and you should offer all sorts of assistance as they can perform in the team. If they don’t come up within the given period, simply fire them form your team otherwise your whole team will be destroyed.
  11. 11. 10.Retain Good Employees Frequent employee departure weakens the team spirit and it is sign of employee dissatisfaction. Good employees are asset for any team so take a special care and take necessary steps to retain them. Find out the root cause of employee turnover. The main reasons for employee turnover is poor relationship with immediate superior, excessive work load, nepotism , inflexible office time, lack of recognition, lack of respect , inappropriate appraisal etc. You should take all necessary steps to retain your good employees because they are the heart of your team.
  12. 12. 11.Be aware of team destroyers You may find some people who always look for negative things and spread negative news among team members and pollute working environment. They find nothing positive in the team, they see difficulties in every situation. Their pessimistic attitude can destroy the whole team. Don’t hesitate to confront them and ask them to change their behavior immediately.
