At the heart of every successful manager's dream team lies the investment of time in cultivating positive team dynamics. Discover firsthand the key steps to eliminate guesswork in fostering relationships, enabling you to implement strategies that elevate team performance to new heights!

Team dynamics, often likened to team "chemistry," serve as the emotional pulse of a team, directly impacting performance and employee engagement.

While assembling a team with the right skills is crucial, true success lies in understanding the unique personalities within your team. Recognizing that Sally is methodical and thrives on structure, while Sue is a visionary thinker who sparks creativity, allows for a more intentional, cohesive, and harmonious team dynamic to flourish.

1. Trust and open communication: Quickly address any friction or discomfort on your team! We say, “be sensitive to the other while being true to yourself” and “have the courage to speak to each other directly.”

2. Learn about each other: Invite people to be open with the team about their strengths and what they want to improve on, then log it somewhere so the team members can go back to it and complement each other, and help each other be at their best.


3. Have a shared direction: With a shared purpose and a common goal, it’s much easier to celebrate advancement and have a rhythm during projects.

4. Offer clarity: Have a good mix between clarity of everyone’s responsibilities and understanding of one’s unique contribution. This way, no one is scared to overstep and no one doubts that they have an impact.
5. Underline the collective interest: Despite having the most clarity possible, instill a deep understanding that the collective interest surpasses individual interests. This prompts everyone to be flexible and put all hands on deck for the sake of the team.
6. Be intentional about it: Good dynamics and team cohesion doesn’t happen by itself. Legitimize the time for your team to get to learn about one another. It will pay off even in the short term.
