Today’s teams are different than ever before.
You can assemble a group of people, assign them a common goal to work toward, and refer to them as a team, but that doesn’t guarantee you’ll reap the benefits of teamwork. Achieving team goals can be difficult even in the best of times. Throw in mistrust, miscommunication, and misalignment, and the obstacles start to stack up.
Effective team building is far more intentional than that. Putting together a successful team involves selecting team members with relevant expertise and skills that complement one another. It also requires helping those individuals forge a connection that’ll inspire creativity, problem solving, and collaboration.
