What Makes a Great Team?

What makes a great, effective team?

  • Shared common goals.
  • Good systems and processes.
  • Team members that know how to build on each other strengths and diversity.
  • Good leadership.

Same principles will apply to a multicultural team.
The only difference is that some processes will be more challenging to implement than others.

Good Systems and Processes
In an earlier post we discussed how important trust and communication are when building a successful team.
Equally important is making sure that each member feels valued.

The leadership needs to create a positive atmosphere where input and feedback is encouraged.
Most of all, each member needs to feel included. Sometime all it takes from management is to listen.
When team members feel their opinion counts then they’ll feel invested in the team.
And they will work harder toward reaching the teams’ goals and objectives.

Positive work environment
If you are the leader of your team you will get much better results when you create a positive work environment.
And include team members in the decision process.

To be a great leader you need to know how to motivate and inspire your team.
And that’s a win/win for everyone involved.

Mariana Fieraru, an Eastern European transplant, fell in love with her new home shortly after landing in New York. She "discovered" pizza! Years later she still loves pizza. And so do her two feathered-kids, Sunny and Flipper

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
Its mission: to make learning fun! And easy.

Through its training, consulting, and publications OBI builds bridges of knowledge to take you from where you are to
where you want to go. Using a mix of serious, informal, analytical, and optimistic approach, OBI truly makes learning fun.
