How to Develop a Team

Posted by appsinfo on December 29, 2015

Develop Team

For a team to be effective, you need the right team members. It’s not how many people are on a team that makes it successful; you need people who work well together. They must share common goals, vision, agendas and timelines. If they don’t share these things, it’ll be extremely difficult for them to move forward and accomplish anything – no matter how many people are on the team.

A person should never be added to a team simply because they want to be on the team or because they whined and complained long enough. The needs of the team should be considered above the desires of the individual. Does this person have something to offer the team? Can they fit in and flow with the team dynamics? Will adding this person increase the effectiveness of the team? These things should be considered before making any changes.

Identifying the right team members will take longer time, however implementing below stages will help in creating a right team.


Stage Activities
  • Direct the team, and establish clear objectives, both for the team as a whole and for individual team members.
  • Establish processes and structures.
  • Build trust and good relationships between team members.
  • Resolve conflicts swiftly if they occur. Provide support, especially to those team members who are less secure.
  • Remain positive and firm in the face of challenges to your leadership, or to the team’s goal.

Explain the “forming, storming, norming, and performing” idea, so that people understand why problems are occurring, and so that they see that things will get better in the future. Coach team members in assertiveness and conflict resolution skills, where this is necessary.

  • Help team members take responsibility for progress towards the goal.
  • This is when people start to resolve their differences, appreciate colleagues’ strengths, and respect your authority as a leader.
  • Delegate tasks and projects as far as you can. Once the team is achieving well, you should aim to have as light a touch as possible.
  • Take the time to celebrate the team’s achievements
  • Appreciate team and individuals team members

  1. Good advice. As leaders, we can’t assume anything. We must model the change we want to see.

      Hi Michelle,

      Agree with you! Also it’s based on project to project agility and also how we baseline the team based on project requirements.
