Get the team dynamics right
The dynamics of every workplace team must be considered, so team members with different skills and experience can work well together, while also allowing individuals to bring something worthwhile to the table.
This means looking at different roles for team members, and supporting each member to use their skills and experience to make the best contribution. This is why the skills of the chosen team leader are an important consideration.
The business culture is basically 'the way we do things around here', and because it underpins the way a team will perform, it should be another important consideration.
Get any of this wrong, and it will negatively affect the work group in terms of how well it functions, its productivity and its success – and, therefore, the bottom line of your business. You may experience competition rather than cooperation, and there may be clashes of personalities, ethics and values.
