Create a Successful Team

The secrets of a winning team

A recent survey conducted by communications software company Unify, looked into teams that are not based in a single location and the ingredients that made the difference between unsuccessful and successful teams. The outcome was that being grouped in the same location, or spread geographically in several locations actually has no direct impact on the success of that team.

What did have an impact was how those team members communicated with one another.

A team with low team esteem will be much less effective, will experience more internal conflict, and stress levels will be higher.

Of course conflict will occur in any team but a successful team recognises conflict as a good thing. It is a welcome way to challenge their own ideas and each member is receptive to differing views from their team mates, and ready to take these ideas on board and challenge their own views.
