4 Characteristics That Make a Team Successful
- nettime solutions staff
Trust, commitment, accountability, and results are 4 characteristics that can make a team a successful one.
When the members of a team learn to master these four characteristics, something very unique happens: a bond is established, cohesive development takes place, and your department or organization is working productively.
It All Starts With a Good foundation
How does a team build trust?
Trust can only happen when each and every staff member on your team is willing to be completely vulnerable with one another. The reality is that no one wants to be placed in a vulnerable situation. There are too many uncertainties with that scenario.
However, it can help individuals understand themselves and the people they work with better.
How do you get to that state?
One way is to implement team activities that encourage engagement outside of the workplace.
Break up the smaller “cliquish” groups within your workplace and set them up to work with people they typically do not associate with on a regular basis. You can practice this once or twice a month until you notice new bonds being established and the smaller social circles you once had are now larger well-rounded ones.
Ultimately, encouraging trust comes from modeling it. If your employees feel you trust them and they trust you, their commitment to accomplish the results you set forth as a leader will hold them accountable in order to achieve a positive outcome.
