Building and maintaining successful teams is critical to any organization or business group's success, no matter the industry. Fostering an environment in which team members understand their roles and are prepared to contribute and cooperate with one another is absolutely vital. Setting the scene for success is a responsibility that falls to executives, senior management, supervisors and ultimately team leaders. It is not a responsibility that should be taken lightly or haphazardly, rather an enterprise that follows a specific and defined process.

The team building process

An often complicated undertaking, creating and maintaining a high functioning team requires a clear set of processes in combination with predetermined accountability. While organizations and training providers look at team building in different ways, the most common approach was established in the mid-1960s. It describes the team building process is being divided into four main steps .These are:

  • Forming: At this first stage the leader directs. Here all team members are looking to the leader for guidance and setting definitions, expectations and objectives.
  • Storming: At this stage team members are moving towards responsibilities and are most susceptible to struggle as everyone in the team is searching for their purpose. While certain amounts of freedom must be loud allowed, it is important that the team leader remain in control and in the position to make compromises.
  • Norming: During the norming stage team members take control and are ready to come to agreement on some of the larger decisions in front of the team. Leadership begins to be more equally divided among all involved.
  • Performing: Much as it sounds, this is the stage in which the team is prepared to put the process to work and face goals with the clarity of the singular mindset.

Finding Agreement in Difficult Situations

While working as a member of the team undeniably has its benefits, this close proximity and formation of interpersonal relationships has the potential to result in negative feelings an uncomfortable situation. Part of ensuring effective team building process is knowing how to navigate these eventualities. Many training providers cover this topic as part of course material. In order for a team to properly function it is important that team leaders and other members be aware of the right and wrong ways to approach difficult personalities or situations.

The importance of the team leader

Much about team building boils down to the creation of a balance between the use of authority and the allowance of freedom. While creating accountability measures and ensuring team members remain focused on their ultimate goals is clearly important, teams must also be allowed the freedom to determine their own roles and responsibilities. When looking at team building for the team leader role, it may also be useful to broaden search to include leadership and development programs. If you're not finding the training solution you need to know what's above, consider searching and management or leadership and development.
