What makes a team great?

It seems that some teams just have it all: they get along swimmingly, can communicate with just a look, and always seem to be at the top of their game. And it doesn’t seem like it takes them any effort. HOW is that possible? It’s not. Like anything worth having, Building, nurturing, and growing a great team takes work.

Luckily for you, we’re here to help! T2T Team Building programs are all custom made to suit your group and to help you to nurture the aspects of your team that you may want some help with.

We’ve asked around, and here’s what you told us are some of the things that make a team great.

Communication

Learn your style! How do you communicate with others, how do others respond, and how do they communicate with you? You may be surprised to realize that your style of communication interacts differently than you’d expect with another’s style of communication. It’s an art to learn how to blend these together to help your team to communicate effectively.

They all share a goal

It’s important for your team to all sit down and communicate about what you think the team’s goals are. You might be surprised to hear what other team members think that your overall goal is! If your team is not all working towards the same goal, how successful can you be?

Everyone contributes

Do you remember group projects and how frustrating they could be when one member let you down, or when they didn’t do any of the work? The same concept applies here. A great team weighs everyone’s strengths, plays to them, and delegates accordingly!

Feeling like a part of the team & supporting each other

This is a major part of being a successful team member. If you don’t feel like you belong, it’s tough to be an integral part of the team. By being a participant in a team and supporting each other, you’ll feel the relationships and connections between members grow.
