5 quick tips for building great teams

Building great teams

In this on-demand webinar, “Engaged teams: The key to unlocking maximum productivity,” Adam Weber dives deeper into the proven methods and best practices for retaining talent.

Most people would agree that building great teams means hiring the right people. While this is definitely a big part of team building, there’s so much more that goes into creating a strong and successful team dynamic. Here are five simple tips to help you make sure you’re on the right path to building a world-class team.

Know what “building great teams” means

Before you’re ready to begin the hiring process, you need to have a clear set of criteria in place for the position you’re trying to fill. This will minimize confusion on team when determining whether a candidate is a good fit or not, and helps streamline the overall hiring process.

  1. Trust your team during the hiring process

    Who on your team would you consider to be a “culture champion”—someone who epitomizes the type of culture you want your team to exude? Give this person the opportunity to meet and engage with potential hires. Listen to their feedback and give them the authority to decide if someone is a good culture fit for the team.

  2. Set goals for your people

    What motivates the individuals that make up your team? Discover the things that are important to them, and what they’re striving for on both a personal and professional level. Understanding what motivates your employees helps you to empower them within their roles and set them up for future success.

  3. Never stop improving

    This stems from the mindset that within a culture of success, people are constantly striving to be better at the work they’re doing. Help your employees along the way by providing consistent and constructive feedback, and outlining a plan for their professional development and growth.

  4. Ask your teams to self-solution

    Who could be more qualified to solve team issues than the people on your team itself? Many times, managers will try to jump in blindly and fix issues that they’re too removed from. Solicit feedback from your team during these situations to understand what actually needs to be done to resolve the problem.

    I was wondering if there is a way to get the PDF/Slides from this Webinar. I like to use them when I have a meeting with our CEO on how the webinar went. I have notes and pictures I took with my phone but PDF or the slide would do wonders. Let me know. Thanks.
