In every firm or company a target is achieved by organizing and diving the work and employees into teams that would work in achieving the targets and goals. This is done so the goals are divided and a particular group of people focus on achieving that single target. When the respective goals of different teams are assembled and conjoined is when the actual target of the firm or the main objective is achieved. So team building is a very essential part and step of any organization. It is very important for any company to build up an effective team that works towards achieving the targets.
An effective team would always be determined and would assist in getting closer to the goal each day because it would be then very wise to do the work and achieve the target. A team leader has to be an objective driven and focuses person and he must exactly know what he has to extract from each employee. He must be aware of each team member`s effective potential and must be willing to achieve the goals of the company. it is also to be noted that a team building cannot be based upon the random and rapid selection rather it has to be totally purpose driven. The relevance of a team building lies in the fact that no company would be able to achieve its target without the prior support and determination of every employee from every team. So a team leader must chalk out his plans, policies, rules and all that which is necessary to be addressed to the employees.
The steps taken by a team builder
- Arriving at the consensus- establish a methods which helps you and the team members to get to the consensus between the members. You might start a debate or topic discussion shedding light on the pros and cons of a project or anything. This would prompt more individuals to open up and share the views with the employees.
- Listening and brainstorming- encourage your team members to the fullest and see that the team members are expressive and equally approachable. Often the employees might disagree on certain decisions and statements and that would make the team take some mediocre decisions. So try and get majority decisions which are accepted and appreciated by every team member
- Parameters of consensus building- at a time when the team is not able to build the consensus be sensitive and patient. There might arise situations where the views might conflict amidst each other and might be different. At the meeting, establish the time limit and work on to achieve that consensus timely and appropriately. Also be careful to investigate and probe every team member to discover real feelings relating to the proposed solutions.
- Be clear in approach- as a team leader you need to set objectives, chalk out plans for achieving them and driving the force of members in achieving the target. It establishes drive and consent within the members.
