Are you on a winning team? I believe that everyone wants to be on a winning team, even the individuals that thrive by themselves. Here are a few tips in building your team dynamic for a winning culture.
Know Your Team
Invest the time to really get to know your team, coworkers, managers, etc. Learn about what drives them and what their passions are. Try to get a picture of their work or leadership style, as this tells a lot about an individual and how they operate with others.
You took the time to get to know your team, right? Great!
Knowing how to approach individuals will help enhance your communication, especially one-on-one. When in a group setting, remember to speak clearly and directly. Finally, always remember that half of communicating is listening. Listen to understand and learn, not to respond.
There is always room for continuous improvement! Whether it’s a team training or individual training, professional development is essential for growth. Do you want a leader, or a subject matter expert? Train and develop them to be the best they can be.
Creating and inspiring accountability will spawn a culture of individuals that are responsible to their day-to-day requirements. Having the privilege to be accountable for their successes and losses will create a winning team.
These four items builds powerful relationships, creates opportunities, and inspires commitment and integrity.
