Teamwork Tips

In this article I am going to share with you five teamwork tips to help create a more productive work environment.

There are many rewarding opportunities when a team works well together and of course when a team fails to work well together the process can be very frustrating. When things are going well people will surprise you as hidden talents and strengths start to shine and the group is flowing together.

I have had both rewarding and frustrating experiences working with groups. Here are five teamwork tips that have given me positive experiences.

1. Leadership
For a team to work well together there needs to be a person in the leadership position. Someone who will motivate, inspire, and make sure everyone is moving in the right direction.

2. Clarity
There should be a clear understanding of the purpose of the group. What are the team's goals? What is the team's purpose? What are we striving to accomplish? The clearer this is the easier for people to stay on track.

3. Responsibility
Each member needs to have a clear understanding of what they are responsible for doing. Everyone should know what their job is, when it will be expected, and what the parameters are to work with.

4. Feedback
This is very important as people begin to share their ideas in the group setting. It should be supportive and whenever possible positive. This will help to create a comfortable environment where the team will take chances and be more creative. Learn how to give and receive negative feedback and criticism in a professional and respectful way. It is amazing what people can accomplish when they believe in themselves and are confident in the group.

5. Diversity
This is the most important one; it's what makes a team great. Support the differing strengths of your teammates and allow each person to bring their unique qualities to the project. There can be some incredible surprises when we are open to doing things in new and different ways.

Use these five teamwork tips to make the most out of your sessions and get your team to work well together.

but just look at what they can do when they stick together.
