Don’t leave collaboration to Chance! Lay a strong Foundation.
You’ve got to know where you’re going—a vision of what excellence is and then, secondly, you have to set a foundation that includes your team and the purpose of what the work is and how you are going to get there.
Many teams are brought together with no more thought than ‘We need a team to do this.’ So teams get formed rather sloppily many times, with only a vague idea of the purpose. This typically translates into a team that doesn’t have a clear goal. So many teams get off on the wrong foot because they don’t know where they’re going, or why they are a “team”.
The most successful companies use teams effectively. A team will outperform a collection of individuals if it is set up correctly. Good teaming and collaboration impacts productivity, morale, and creativity.
Take advantage of the benefits of collaboration with your teams purpose. Help your teams succeed by making sure that they know how to transform goals into effective transformation.
