At the outset let me reiterate that the idea of team building interventions is outdated and wasted. The only way teams can be made to deliver is by rallying them around business goals, capability building and putting in place measurement dashboards. Rewarding success is an integral part of people engagement. I take this opportunity to list out simple and effective models to engage teams to deliver superior performance: Teams must be built around a cause or a strategic narrative and this is the starting point. 1. An analysis of strength of each teammember must be done and weaknesses must be complimented by the strength of others. Keep the sub-teams small. Large teams allow ineffective people to go unnoticed. Tasks must be assigned strictly around strengths. Ensure everyone is busy and adequately loaded. Review the gaps in performance and have dashboards in place to help people self-reflect on their performance. Make performance feedback an integral part of your culture. Help people regularly redefine their performance orbits. Coach and develop competencies through managers and mentors continually and consistently. Work on creating an environment of success by providing right and optimal resources only. Take concrete steps as listed above to ensure that teams remain engaged and further create a high performance culture by staying focussed on business goals. Ensure all endevours hover around the organizational goals only. Once people realize that performance is the only key, either they align or wither away. Needless to say - hire for the attitude and skills will follow. Teams have to be built as they are never available on a platter. Warm managers who mean business must only fill the leadership potential. Tolerance to politics must be zero at all times. Organizations must consistently shift business orbits to keep their team excited and engaged at all times. A stalled organization will only nurture mediocrity.
