Team Building
United we stand, Divided we fall...
A team had four members called Everybody,
Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.
There was an important job to be done.
• Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done
it, but Nobody did it.
• Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job.
• Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that
Everybody wouldn’t do it.
• It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what
Anybody could have done.
“A team is internally organized, with specific goals and
usually with specific roles for different members of the
team. “
For example: A cricket Team, Project team, Football team etc...
“A group is just a collection of people with something in
common, such as being in the same place or having a
shared interest”
For example: Blood group, an isolated group of people etc...
Team Building
A "team" is defined as a group of people who collaborate or work
together toward a common goal.
T - Together
E - Empowering each other to
A - Achieve
M - More
Why Teams
"One piece of log creates a small fire, adequate to warm you up, add
just a few more pieces to blast an immense bonfire, large enough to
warm up your entire circle of friends; needless to say that individuality
counts but team work dynamites."
Need for Team Building
• Decreased productivity
• Conflicts or hostility among people (staff’s, students etc…)
• Confusion about assignments, missed signals, and unclear relationships
• Decisions misunderstood or not carried through properly

• Lack of initiation, imagination, innovation; routine actions taken for solving
complex problems
• Complaints of discrimination or favouritism
• Ineffective staff meetings, low participation, minimally effective decisions
• Negative reactions to the higher authority
• Complaints about quality of service
A Team building can lead to
• Good communications with participants as team members and individuals

• Team members motivated to achieve goals
• A climate of cooperation and collaborative problem-solving
• Higher levels of task satisfaction and commitment
• Higher levels of trust and support
• Diverse co-workers working well together
• Clear work objectives
• Better operating policies and procedures

• Risk honesty and openness.

• Be willing to give up some control.
DO’s of a Team building (contd…)

• Admit that you do not have all the answers, or even know all the
questions.
• Believe that everyone has something to offer.

Editor's Notes

  1. Pay Attention To What’s Important Pay attention to it in your written and oral communications. Restate the key themes over and over. Don’t undervalue repetition, repetition makes for memory and memory makes for action. Pay attention to it in your casual contacts. John Kotter, in his book to general managers, pointed out that effective general managers make great use of the random contacts they have with people. Those contacts could be in the hallway, at the water cooler, in the elevator, or walking down the street. The seize on those moments to talk about the things and ask the questions that are important to their leadership agenda. You should do that too.Organize you day, your communications, your organizational structures, your reward systems and everything else to pay attention to what’s important and then do that with unremitting diligence. Praise What You Want to Continue Praise is your best training tool. In technical terms, praise is a positive consequence that follows a positive action. It’s a reward for something done right. Use praise to get people to continue to do things or to take positive action. That’s where it’s best used.Remember, too, that praise is a tool that is most effective when it’s used inconsistently. Used consistently, praise tends to loose its force. So, don’t worry so much about praising everything that people do right, but do worry about praising.That’s important, because most of us came up in a world where we didn’t praise enough. Seek out opportunities to praise but don’t get anal retentive about it. Punish What You Want to Stop Punishment is the mirror image of praise. It’s a negative consequence that follows negative behavior. It follows a principle stated almost in biblical terms by one of my past trainees. She said: "the good shall be rewarded and the unjust shall be punished in proportion to their deeds."Punishment – negative consequences – are the tool you use to get people to stop stuff. If you figure out what’s most important for people to quit doing in your organization, rig up some kind of negative consequence for them if they do it. Be careful though, because you may fall prey to the hot stove guideline. It was Mark Twain (or if it wasn’t it should have been) who said, "A cat who sits on a hot stove will never sit on a hot stove again. But he won’t sit on a cold stove either.The management lesson here is that if you zap people too much with negative consequences, they don’t just quit doing the stuff that you don’t want them to do. They quit doing pretty much everything. That’s why "rule by fear" and "controlled ferocity" cultures have a devil of a time getting people to take initiative. They’ve been zapped so often they’re just not willing to risk it. Pay For the Results You Want Years ago when I was managing distribution and customer service centers I happened to compliment one of the customer service reps. She immediately turned around to me and said, "Don’t just tell me, show me, payday is Friday."Pay is one of the tangible ways you can reward people for doing good stuff. It’s another form of praise in visible, tangible form. Don’t limit your thinking about pay to just money, though. Pay people with time off, recognition, choice assignments, small gifts, and special bonuses to encourage the behavior you want.One of my clients used to carry around a pocket-full of restaurant gift certificates as he wandered around his trucking company. When he found somebody doing something that he wanted to encourage he was likely to whip out a gift certificate and hand it to them on the spot. It created the kind of event and drama that makes for good communication, and it encouraged positive behavior. Promote People Who Deliver The Results You Want This one just makes sense. The problem is that lots of organizations forget about it. They maintain reward and promotion systems that reward the old behavior, even while they’re trumpeting the new behavior in memo’s, meetings, and executive retreats. The five P’s of leadership will help you stay on track to positive organizational change. Remember to pay attention to what’s important, praise what you want to continue, punish what you want to stop, pay for the results you want, and promote the people who deliver those results and you’ll help your organization be the very best that it can become.
