Make Your Team Better

Do Your Personal Best

While the emphasis in this column is on making your team better, never forget that the foundation of team success rests on everyone performing at their best. This includes you.

Be the Missing Piece of the Puzzle

Every team benefits from the contributions of each of its members, and functions at its best when those various contributions mesh together smoothly to provide all the necessary ingredients of success.

Build Team Spirit and Cohesion

Teams perform at their best when they know, like, and trust each other. This allows them to communicate effectively and intuitively so they can tightly coordinate their efforts in response to current opportunities or demands.

Practice Obligation and Accountability

Teams perform at their best when every team member feels obligated to deliver a top-notch performance. But this performance must be driven from within. Not surprisingly, a strong team spirit is part of the foundation for this kind of obligation and accountability.

Develop Humility Within the Team

Teams perform better when everyone understands that success depends not on just a few superstars, but on all of its members.
