I am sure that every team wishes to have a sky-high performance, with talented individuals and leaders that lead the team. And more often than not, employers would rather find and hire people who have a well-crafted resume.
However, having a high-performance team do not always mean that your team already comprised of talented individuals but it requires time and effort to develop and nurture the team into one that suits your team culture and goals.
Below are the factors and traits that high-performance teams adopt and apply in their daily work.
#1 Team Goal - Direction and vision are guideposts to help members of the team know what they are working towards and allow them to recognize if there is a need for necessary modifications to work to stay on the same track with the team.
#2 Clear Instructions - Like a manual that comes with a newly bought electronic appliance, if the manual is unclear, confusing, and inconsistent, the manual will only cause unproductiveness and misunderstandings. For instruction to be crystal clear, check if the issued instructions describe and explains the what, where, who, how and why. Do not assume that the others always understand what your message and be clear and detailed, and if needed, clarify again.
#3 Open-mindedness - This is to sort out misunderstandings, conflicts and feedbacks in a non-aggressive manner. Communication is unavoidable, having an open-minded heart and attitude allows the culture to be more approachable, understanding and accepting of the differences in our personalities, helping us to bring out the best in the team.
#4 Team driven Leadership - Having more authority as a leader, gives one greater power, but he/she must be ready to accept greater responsibilities and workload for members to follow and model after. A leader is also required to understand the work each team member to issue effective and clear instructions on how to proceed. Therefore, creating an effective team includes having a team-driven leadership.
#5 Proper Management - The management of the team requires to only sort out and clarify the roles and responsibilities but ensure that there are no discrepancies and inconsistencies to their job scopes. Management also includes managing the welfare of the team. Encouraging good team welfare helps the team stay motivated and driven as they could see how the company acknowledged their efforts and reward them.
#6 Trust - Trust can build or break a team internally. It takes time to earn but could be easily crumbled. At work, trust can be in forms such as transparency and consistency of company policies, rules and regulations, and a culture that encourages integrity by not short-changing the employees and taking advantage of the people working for the team.
#7 Flexibility & Adaptability
Variables are inevitable and could happen very unexpected at any moment during our work and lives. The team should have necessary capabilities, and skills to cope and manage the variables that are thrown at them in the moment, effectively soothing and resolving spontaneous issues that arises.
#8 Celebrates the Good and Encourages Failures
Celebrating the good gives acknowledgement to the team’s success, giving the team a boost in team’s morale and motivation. Encouraging failures is a culture that is not common yet it encourages the team to adopt a continuous learning mindset despite one’s or the team’s failures. When society is harsh towards the failures, seeing only the end result, fear of failure could become the norm in the team, impeding them from risking to learn and do something new. This could possibly kill off the growing potential of each individual in the team.
#9 Continuous Learning - Taking initiative to learn and giving opportunities for the team to grow and learn are great nutrition to enhance the team’s capabilities, developing talents and nurturing a learning spirit of the team. Some examples could be going for workshops, events and social gatherings to broaden their knowledge and hone their existing skill sets.
Greatness cannot be attained within a short time span, it requires pro-activeness, time and effort on everyone’s part in the team. To lead this type of high-performance culture, a good and effective leader should be positioned to help and guide the team.
