There was no wise business or organizational leader that ever said, “I want a weak team.” Rather, businesses succeed, in large part, on the strength of their business teams. Bringing skilled and committed individuals together in a collaborative way is the secret to unleashing the power of a team.
What is the Importance of Team Collaboration?
Business teams that work together in a collaborative way create much more strength than found in organizations where individuals work in “silos,” separated from better collective efforts. Consider these benefits of collaborative business teams:
• Individuals who work closely together learn from one another’s successes and failures.
• Workplace collaboration brings team members and their varied skills together in a way that improves participation and cooperation, resulting in more input and higher quality solutions to problems as a team works toward common goals.
• Teamwork creates a more complementary balance of differences and helps to break down barriers.
• Collaboration increases productivity.
• Teamwork broadens horizons and enriches the perspectives of team members.
• Collaborative teamwork enhances the culture of a company by building motivation, improving work enjoyment, enhancing communication, and increasing bonding.
How to Build Collaborative Business Teams
Build collaborative business teams by:
• Examining your existing work environment to see what is and isn’t working, including the elements of trust, competitiveness, chemistry, management leadership, and support.
• Seeking ideas, suggestions, and team member goals.
• Listening carefully to team member feedback then aggregating the feedback and suggestions and adapting them to the circumstances of the business.
• Being transparent in your efforts to build solutions that improve the workplace community.
• Seeking ways to energize the entire workforce. That should include making sure that all team members feel valued.
• Creating a team-building environment. That may include modifications to the workplace to increase team member visibility and interaction and team-building activities.
