Together Everyone Achieves More

Effective relationships and behaviour at work involve the same principles as everyday life - respect for others, integrity, honesty, compassion, courage - all the good things that we all naturally possess deep down. Sometimes people have insecurities or stresses which create difficulties on the surface, to which others in the team then react.

Teams should have clear responsibilities and authority to make decisions alone. Teams should be given time to develop into a productive unit.

Well managed teams are more likely to produce the correct answer and teams that are well supported and trusted will produce the best results.

Groups and Teams are not the same thing:

A Group that interacts primarily to share information and to make decisions to help each other perform within his or her area of responsibility

A team is a group whose individual efforts result in a performance that is greater than the sum of the individual parts.

Work teams do not just happen. They must be created and nurtured.

There is an entire history of workplace culture that does not condone cooperation, collaboration, group performance and reward. So, we need to give work teams as much help as we can.”
