On a daily basis, we have the opportunity to connect firsthand with many workers, employers and workplace environments.  In this article, we share with you 8 top tips to build a great team.

1. Culture

If we acquire the correct cultural match we can succeed within a positive team environment.  By gathering members with diverse backgrounds, cultures and education, this brings together a great mixture of skills.

2. Clear Visions

Concrete target and goal strategies are imperative if everyone is kept well informed of clear objectives then each member knows where the goal post is, therefore achieving optimal end results.

Great leadership skills used in the correct way, can pull the team’s drive to the top for excellence.  Clearly outlined and specified goals allow all members a sense of purpose.

3. Authenticity

It’s okay to admit your flaws.  It shows genuine authenticity in your personality, bridging a gap and creating firm bonds.  It can make it easier for others to recognise and admit their own flaws when the time permits leading towards solution driven communication.

Simply spoken and assertive language while being genuine will decipher, deliver and lift energy vibrations within the team.

4. Discuss situations openly even when difficult

Some topics are delicate and difficult to broach.  When handled with care and respect the competency to solve issues and seek new solutions is positive and results orientated regardless of the outcome.

Bringing difficult conversations to the table is better than burying them under the carpet.  This develops open and effective communication, therefore, building trust.

5. See through your commitments

Implementation of clear and correct strategies encourages the team, allowing initiative and confidence to grow, once performance targets are achieved then a good consistent balance is established.

6. Effective Listening

Effective listening is invested time, discovering what motivates the other members, therefore understanding what to expect from performance and personal growth.  This makes everyone’s agenda heard loud and clear.

There is a difference between listening and hearing, anyone can hear noises however it takes an attentive member to listen considerately.  Allow time before responding, gather intelligence and define the strength and capabilities of the team, this will bring members closer.

7. Think before you speak

Steer clear of sarcasm it can poke fun at someone and cause conflict, even if you didn’t mean any harm by it. Respect of everyone within the team by creating unity and collaboration.  Set these standards for your behaviour.

8. Be approachable

Be approachable and prepared to hold conversations confronting real issues even if challenging.  Be upfront and honest, then others know what to expect, your character will be based upon how you respond.
