Crucial Team Skills to Build High Impact Teams

Jef Menguin has inspired and mentored thousands of leaders in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. Execute your business ideas using learning exercises and innovation tools.

Is it possible for you to accomplish your leadership projects alone? Yes, but that will be very difficult.

It gets easier when you tap the talents and skills of others. Enlist others to your vision and mission. Build a strong team.

Teams will multiply your results with the least of efforts.

Do you have nonteam players? Learn practical ways to influence them to value teamwork.

Nonplayers aren’t necessarily bad people. Oftentimes, they have good intentions. Learn how to speak to them — and leave them okay as a person after your conversation.

Do you have team members who are too busy for teamwork? This is true for many organizations. The closest they have for “team building” is an outing done once a year — of every three years — where they compete against each other.

Of course, this is typically an ineffective way of building a team, but this is one that many employees actually experience.

Of course, we all have the same number of hours everyday. Team building isn’t an interruption to daily work.

Make your team members understand that team building is a strategy to make you work faster for less time. That team building should give you more time for yourselves and your families.

Do you have team members who are laggards and deadwoods? It is disheartening to work hard while others are not, especially if they enjoy the same rewards as the rest of the team.

Align their actions to the motivations of the team. Manage performance.

Do personality conflicts hinder productivity and high performance among team members? You can manage conflict effectively — and turn conflict into growth opportunities.

Learn how to give feedback and become assertive when communicating with your teammates.

Do you have knowledge hogs? Examine your rewards system.

In many organizations, rewards systems encourage cheating and in-fighting. Audit your reward system.

Do you have team members who do not demonstrate a sense to personal accountability? You know that each person is accountable for results. However, in most team building programs, the main problems of members are “other members” who do not have sense to personal accountability.

The “other members” are always the source of team problems. Discover here various ways that promote accountability.
