Team dynamics

When assembling a team it is important to consider the overall dynamic of the team. At FORTUNE DIRECT, when building a team, five dynamics are considered for a successful team:

  1. The team member: Successful teams are made up of a collection of effective individuals. These are people who are experienced, have problem solving ability, openness to addressing the problem, action oriented.
  2. Team relationships: For a team to be successful the members of the team must be able to give and receive feedback.
  3. Team problem solving: An effective team depends on how focused and clear the goal of the team is. A relaxed, comfortable and accepting environment and finally, open and honest communication.
  4. Team leadership: Effective team leadership depends on leadership competencies. A competent leader is: focused on the goal, ensures a collaborative climate, builds confidence of team members, sets priorities, demonstrates sufficient “know-how” and manages performance through feedback.
  5. Organizational environment: The climate and culture of the organization must be conductive to team behavior.
