How can I improve the teamwork concept amongst my employees?

There’s clear evidence that well-structured, well-managed teams can achieve significantly higher performance levels than individuals. Here are a few teambuilding essentials:
- Structure the team carefully. An effective team needs people with different skills and personalities.
- Focus on positive team interaction. Team members need to be able to encourage one another in a positive, nurturing environment, and you, as the employer, are responsible for setting that tone within the group.
- Set goals, assign responsibilities. No project can be successful unless you define goals and assign responsibilities.
- Ensure clear communication. Without communication, misunderstandings that threaten your team will surely emerge. Celebrate successes. Be sure to recognize both individual and team efforts consistently.
