Week 40 Focus – Team Development – Building Your Team
Focus Question: What is going to help your team excel? What does building your team look like? When are you dedicating time to this process?
Team development is a process. It is not something that happens overnight. It’s not a one-off. Teams are like elephants – big and bold. They take time to move and shift.
Teams need several elements to perform at their peak. I commonly call these the Six Factors of high performing teams. From different research (Katzenbach and Smith, Hackman and Wageman, Carr and Peters) we know that teams require:
As a team, consider where you are on a scale of 1-10 (1 being low and 10 being high) around each of the Six Factors? What needs attention?
Be sure to schedule in time for your team development activities. (Note the S in activities. Team development is not just a one-off! It’s a process.)
