World class teamwork occurs when individuals?
- Are composed under pressure.
- Work together helping each other through challenging times.
- Reflect and refine their processes to gain an edge on their rivals.
- Demonstrate bouncebackability and resilience, never giving up.
- Share a vision and expectations.
- Produce consistently high performances.
World class teamwork is very powerful yet sadly rare. It is fantastic to see teams when they are at their best.
However, the reality is that many teams suffer from some if not all of these 4 problems:
Leaders have the because I said so attitude and the only reason that employees are set tasks is because management teams said so. This type of behaviour causes fear in the workplace and a reluctance to act in case of repercussions.
Employees, listening skills are poor where they often talk over each other. During team meetings people are there because they have to be but often fail to speak up. Similarly, people may often nod in agreement because they feel uncomfortable about sharing their concerns.
3.Assumptions, Assumptions, Assumptions….
Leaders fail to communicate their wishes or expectations to employees and assume that they know what they should be doing.
4.Absence of Team Identity.
These teams often do not have a compelling vision of the future. Leaders may not have formally communicated to employees the team and personal objectives. A lack of commitment and conflict may result because of a lack of collaboration.
Now consider which behaviours you would prefer in your team.
Would it give you better performance and a more productive workplace? What difference would it make to your profits?
