Today we’re introducing a 7 Part Series on Team-Building. 

In our strategic planning practice, we see a key differentiator for businesses from their competition is the success of their teams; how effectively they work together, innovate and implement their strategies.  In this series we break down and discuss 7 key components of successful teams.

What do the names Lombardi, Wooden, Coach K. and Smith all bring to mind? Successful coaches.

These coaches accomplished great things by recruiting and developing good talent, building consistent training models, and delivering high quality performance for their schools and professional franchises.

Sounds a lot like what we would want to see in a corporate or non-profit organization:

  • Recruiting good talent
  • Building consistent business models
  • Delivering high quality performance for stakeholders

So what’s the difference between a successful “business team” and a successful sports team? First lets talk about the definition of a “team”. Webster’s New World Dictionary defines:

Team: a group of people working together in a coordinated effort, to join in cooperative activity

Teamwork: joint action by a group of people in which individual interests are    subordinated to group unity and efficiency

In life, sports, and business the greatest accomplishments can be attributed to the work of teams focused on a common goal to achieve unified results.

What does a highly effective team look like? In the following blog series we will discuss these seven characteristics that are fundamental and strategic to building a team that consistently delivers high quality and innovative performance.

  1. Trust
  2. Conflict
  3. Commitment
  4. Accountability
  5. Results
  6. Training & Creativity
  7. Leadership of an Involved Coach
