17 Develop and facilitate team cohesion ProcessThe way a group of people work together, including absence or presence of tension, communicating patterns and style, group norms, and level of participation.When we pay too much attention to the task and leave the way the team works together to languish, the task itself ends up suffering.Process has dramatic influence on task achievement. It is the oil that keeps the team wheel turning. How clearly and openly team members communicate with each other, how enjoyable and supportively they work together, and how much they trust each other sets the stage for how they share ideas and innovation.
18 Develop and facilitate team cohesion PoliciesDevelop policies to ensure team members take responsibility for their own work.Attend all meetingsAttend trainingAgendasKeep team informedFeedbackList of duties and responsibilitiesWork to build effective communications
19 Develop and facilitate team cohesion FeedbackFeedback matters.The only way for people to get better at what they do is for the people they work for to provide candid, timely performance evaluations.In today’s environment, you have to evaluate what’s changing and what’s staying the same, what’s working and what’s no longer working.
20 Develop and facilitate team cohesion FeedbackFeedback matters.The only way for people to get better at what they do is for the people they work for to provide candid, timely performance evaluations.In today’s environment, you have to evaluate what’s changing and what’s staying the same, what’s working and what’s no longer working.
21 Develop and facilitate team cohesion FeedbackAlways get feedback on your feedbackOne reason candid feedback is so important is that most people are great at self- delusion. It’s easy to think we are better at giving feedback than we are.There’s such a disconnection between managers ‘impressions of the feedback they give and their employees ‘ impressions of the feedback they get.Most managers need a reality check.
22 Develop and facilitate team cohesion Time to discuss these questions :How do we measure our teams success in working together and achieving results?How do we celebrate our success?How do we want to communicate with each other?How do we want to work with each other, individually or as a team?Do we wish to meet with each other and brain storm concepts?What makes it worthwhile for each of us to be part of a team?What must we do to achieve the team goals?
23 Develop and facilitate team cohesion TasksThe work an individual or a team carries out to achieve its goals and objectivesKnowing each others roles and your own allows the team to work together and support each other in the achievement of their roles and tasks.You can increase the teams task commitment by involving them in the planning, decision making and other operational aspects of their work.The task refers to the goals the team is working to achieve, ensuring that every person is clear on what to do
24 Develop and facilitate team cohesion How leaders see their role :“I work to build a team that works well together and helps each other out. I wantthem to respect each other, trust each other and innovate and I want them tohave fun whilst doing it!”“ I think it is important to emphasise the positive. To ‘catch people doingsomething right’ as they say”“ I work with my team. We work together to get the job done, solve problems,make decisions and so on. I oversee the process but, basically, the way I see it is:“We’re all in this together!”“We’re in it together” is Simonds company motto and culture.In groups discuss what this means to you and how you would describe how your leader see’s their role within the organisation and how does this motivate or impact your job role?

27 Facilitate Teamwork Managed Teams: Matrix Teams: Merged Teams: Managers form the organisations key functions and make up management or leadership teams.

Members of Matrix teams report to different managers for each aspect of their job.Merged Teams:Acquisitions, mergers and takeovers are common. Employees from once competing organisations are asked to work together cooperatively for the good of the newly combined company.
28 Multi-functional or cross – functional teams: Facilitate TeamworkMixed Teams:Full-time, part-time and casual workers, temporary and contract employees and off site employees make up mixed teams. Leading teams of various groups of workers presents special challenges for managersMulti-functional or cross – functional teams:Include people from various functions of an organisation and are responsible for delivering an entire product or service, from design to manufacture, marketing, delivery and after sales service, or for undertaking a special project such as developing and designing a new product. Their members often report to their team or project manager as well as a manager.
