Team Development Considerations
Did an event, incident, or situation occur that prompted you to take action? Ask yourself, “What would I like to see happen in order for this group to develop, grow, and function like a great team?”
If you are the team leader, input from your manager regarding this exercise and their perception of both team performance and your leadership skills is in order here. Feedback from your manager about your own development needs is essential to the process of your team’s functioning and development. This conversation may include discussion of a 360 feedback initiative, which involves gathering input from you and the team members.
Once the core team processes that need development are identified and addressed, team members will begin to exhibit healthy behaviors and enable members to engage in teamwork activities and perform adequately.
We partner with our clients to develop the purpose and strategy of the 360 process to best align this initiative with your organization’s business and talent plans. Let us know if you need further information.
