Unless you’re a sole proprietor, the only way you can succeed is through successful teamwork. You simply can’t throw a bunch of people together – however talented they may be – and expect them to function as a dynamic team.
Maureen Moriarty, a Seattle-based executive coach, has developed these factors which impact team performance:
Clarity in purpose, goals/objectives, roles, responsibilities and expectations.
The necessary skills/ resources/protection to meet objectives.
Finding ways to work better together.
Reward and recognize.
It takes hard work to ensure everyone on the team is on the same page. Take a honest look at your team – are you giving them all the skills and resources in order to achieve success?
