Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was your team. If you want your team to truly act like one, be patient and allow time for learning, bonding, and growing. Here are 3 ways you can help your team come together.
Create cohesion: Combining a group of people with individual skills to create a well-oiled machine can be tricky. Each person needs to buy-in to the team and feel they are an important part of the group. By constantly reviewing processes and improving on them, your team will remove obstacles and create a cohesion that will help them succeed and grow.
Build trust: If you want your team to work well together, they’ll need to be able to trust each other. It’s hard to trust teammates that you don’t know. Give your team opportunities to get to know each other outside the office, so they can share ideas and opinions through honest communication.
Focus on goals: By setting goals and providing your team with direction, they can begin to understand how they need to work not only as a team but as individuals. Focusing on personal tasks will allow your team to see how individual responsibilities fit together to affect a common goal.
