What Your Boss Needs To Know About Teamwork
Team building skills are critical for your effectiveness as a manager
Team building skills are critical for your effectiveness as a manager. Even if you are not in a management or leadership role, better understanding of team work can make you a more effective employee and give you an extra edge in your corporate office.
According to Davitt Corporate Partners (specialists in business coaching and occupational psychology) based on a study from MIT, when it comes to predicting the success of a great team, the most important element is how well the team communicates during informal meetings.
Effective communication is one of the essential characteristics that helps an office run smoothly. There is less misinterpretation and more understanding with effective communication, which means that more deadlines will be met and employees will have a better understanding of their roles.
Team building success
Strengthening teamwork in the office environment often contributes to greater unity, productivity and employee satisfaction.
Establishing team building goals, clarifying employee roles and responsibilities, organising social activities and of course scheduling regular team meetings are effective ways to increase team cohesiveness.
Team building success occurs when your team can accomplish something much bigger and work more effectively than a group of the same individuals working on their own.
