Developing & Sustaining Effective Teams - principles
Leadership in the new millennium has comprehensively come of age. Where once leaders were aloof decision-makers, today they are dedicated collaborators whose role is to give power to their TEAM rather than wield power to their own ends.

What is a team?
A team is more than just a group of individuals who work together. A team is a small number of individuals with complementary skills committed to a common purpose, common performance goals and an approach for which they hold themselves collectively accountable. (2007)
A team is a group of individuals who work together to produce products or deliver services for which they are mutually accountable. Team members share goals and are mutually held accountable for meeting them, they are interdependent in their accomplishment, and they affect the results through their interactions with one another. Because the team is held collectively accountable, the work of integrating with one another is included in the responsibilities of each member. (Mohrman and Cohen, 1995)
Teams possessing the following characteristics are more effective in delivering high quality care: clarity of team objectivesclarity of team objectives high levels of participation from all team membershigh levels of participation from all team members high emphasis on qualityhigh emphasis on quality high support for innovationhigh support for innovation Health Care Team Effectiveness Project (Borrill and West,2002)

What are some of the characteristics of an effective team?
It Takes a Team Coming together is a beginning Keeping together is progress Working together is success John C. Maxwell
In health care terms, what difference does team working really make?
Borrill & West (2002) found that individuals who worked in well functioning teams had lower levels of stress and better mental health. Their research demonstrated a significant relationship between the percentage of staff working in teams and patient mortality. Where more people work in teams, the death rate among patients is significantly lower. There is much to be gained by enhancing team functioning and effectiveness!

How am I doing as a Team Leader? Team Leader Checklist

Be a TRIM TABBER!
