How effective is your team? What are some areas your team is not functioning well? What are some dysfunctions with your team? How well do you develop individuals on your team and the functioning of the team? Are you aware of the individual dynamics of team members and how that affects the whole?
Developing individuals on your team and developing the team are important for success. Often there are issues within teams that aren’t discussed or may not be clear to managers. This can range from a lack of trust, not wanting to discuss issues, decreased productivity, conflicts, complaints, unaccountability, lack of shared vision, not bought into the vision/mission, not every part functioning with the whole, lack of recognition, lack of involvement, unclear roles and goals, judgment and projection, varying personality types, lack of personal development, et.
There are wonderful and effective ways to develop leaders, individuals, and teams. It is important for each leader and team member to understand themselves and how they relate to others; and to understand others and best ways to work with them. Team development involves personal development. Good team development can improve personal development, productivity, trust, job satisfaction, communication, morale, creativity, diverse personality satisfaction, clear roles and goals, a culture of support and collaboration, shared vision, shared effort, commitment, and recognition.
