Developing Employee Teams
Developing a work group and creating high-functioning teams requires understanding group dynamics models and individual and organizational behaviors. The work of an organization is typically performed by teams. To accomplish great results, you require great teams who are truly collaborative, whether those teams are remote, ad-hoc, departmental or globally situated. The differences in backgrounds and styles of team members create divergent thinking. That’s great for innovation, but if not skillfully navigated it can also create conflicts, misunderstanding and less than stellar communication, resulting in compromised performance. These differences are further exacerbated by greater cultural and generational diversity in the workplace than existed in years prior. Diversity is a great thing; however, it must be managed, and groups with varying personalities in addition to cultural and worldview differences require guidance.
