The success of a business or organization is indeed depends on the team and every successful businessmen know how important a team is. People in all workplace always talk about team building, and working as a team, there are few who understand how to build an effective and efficient team. You have a perfect working team, success must come. However, at first, you need to understand what a team is and how it works.
Success is the ultimate goal for any business or organization, but you cannot catch alone and this is why a team is built, where each and every fellow team member contributes to the overall success. For an example, a typical business is set up with administrators, marketing manager, sales manager, sales people, accountants and other staffs. Each employee is responsible for his/her own section. So if this team is perfect, maximum output will come or otherwise it will fall.
So a team is group working towards a common goal. Now the term, “Team Building”, is the process that enables a team to reach their ultimate goal. The stages involved in the team building include clarifying the team goals, identifying the issues that inhibit the team to achieving their goals, addressing those issues, removing the inhibitors and ensuring the success.
The initial skills in the team building process are to recognize the issues and tackle them in a proper way and order. However, the process depends on the size as well as nature of the team. In a team where team-composition is always changing, the emphasis should be on developing skills in individuals so they become effective team members. In this case, the “Scale” involved is one person and the team consultant endeavors to change the skills of the individuals according to the need. On the other hand, in teams where membership is static such as management teams, the individuals are much more important as each contribution puts great impact on the team. In this case, the “Scale” is small and the consultant attempts to improve the relationships between the team members.
