What Makes a Team Effective?

It takes a lot of effort to form a great team. They’re carefully crafted and nurtured.

While there is no one-size-fits-all recipe for team success, certain characteristics are known to help or hinder a team’s effectiveness.

  • Effective teams, for example, work together to achieve common objectives.
  • They are built on trust and open communication.
  • Team managers ensure that the roles and workloads of team members are balanced.
  • Furthermore, everyone accepts responsibility for both their individual roles and the overall success of the team.
  • Teams need efficient systems, tools, and processes to perform at their best.
  • Finally, when faced with a challenge, the best teams focus on results while also having fun. They leverage their social connections and shared values to maximise the team’s potential.

Accept humour. A team that focuses solely on work may be less effective. Accept your team’s sense of humour, curiosity, and playfulness to bring a positive attitude to your team.
