5 Ways To Build A High Performing Team

Team buidling

Building a high-performing team to deliver impressive results at all times is an essential part of enhancing efficiency and productivity. Sadly, not all employers/team leaders understand how to develop their team to such a height of performance and efficiency. Some business owners outsource team development to professional trainers and get disappointed when their investment in both money and time doesn’t translate to improved team performance. Building a high-performing team involves ensuring everyone has attained the ideal level of competency and productivity. Here are 5 tips for developing a high-performing team for your business.

1.     Resolve Conflicts Quickly and Encourage Cooperation

Differences are always going to arise. Even if you think your employees are the most laid-back in the world, differences of opinions will always come up. This is the reason: Bringing strangers together and requiring them to work in close cooperation creates room for tension. Whether it’s the smallest disagreement or a pretty huge argument, you must know how to resolve differences at work and foster cooperation.

When disputes aren’t resolved right away, a slight disagreement can quickly transform into an unproductive team. Handle conflict immediately you detect it. Initiate a conflict-resolution session between the conflicting employees to address the issue. Make sure there’s a civil discussion by mediating the session.

2.     Communicate a Clear and Inspiring Vision and Direction

According to the findings of a 2012 survey by William Shiemann, only 14 percent of employees are aware of their company’s vision and direction. This means that most of your team members may be paddling in different directions and using huge amounts of energy without moving in the right direction.

It’s your duty as a leader to ensure the whole organization clearly understands your vision, direction, strategy, and steps you intend to take to get there. You must continuously communicate and keep the focus of each team member on the vision and goals to achieve. Regular communication keeps teammates well-versed, up-to-date, and on course.

3.     Promote Employee Growth

Promoting employee development is another great strategy for building a high-performing team. Instead of micromanaging, mentor new leaders in your business. There are so many ways you can encourage employee growth. You can offer continuous education assistance. Staff members can leverage this benefit to advance their education and acquire new skills.

You can offer ongoing training to ensure employees don’t remain stagnant. Continuous training can help them assume new roles, expand their knowledge, and sharpen their skills. You can also come up with creative ways to assign your staff leadership roles. For instance, you can form committees and initiate new projects to create more leadership opportunities.  By promoting employee growth, you provide your staff with the relevant skills and expertise to become excellent performers.

4.     Set Clear Roles and Performance Expectations

Every team member should have a clear idea of what their responsibilities are, what their individual goals are, and what criteria will be used to measure their performance. By setting clear roles and responsibilities, you can ensure everyone is working on what they’re competent at. It also helps you eliminate instances where tasks are left unfinished or done twice.

Setting clear performance expectations, on the other hand, helps employees know precisely what to expect during performance reviews. It’s important to sit with your staff to agree on the team’s goals, their individual goals, and metrics for measuring performance. Offer them feedback on how they’re fairing based on these goals and performance measures. This way, you’ll be able to identify problems before they occur or resolve them right away when they do.

Pro Tip: Provide your employees with the right tools to help them unzip files free. With the best unzip programs, they can open zip files faster and complete their tasks on time.

5.     Build Trust

If you aren’t trusted as a team leader, you won’t be inspiring or trusted to solve disputes amicably, get the team to adopt goals, or believe in your communications. The absence of trust significantly brings down the efficiency and performance of team members.

There are three major pillars of building trust in a team. The first pillar is nurturing positive relationships with your team members. The second one is using your knowledge or expertise to help them solve problems or offer them valuable insights. The third one is being consistent and true to your word.

Conclusion

Developing a high-performance team is an effort-intensive task. It involves resolving conflicts quickly, encouraging cooperation, communicating a clear vision regularly, encouraging employee development, defining roles, setting clear performance expectations, and building trust. When you do all these correctly, team members will definitely surpass expectations.
