Managing Group Dynamics

Working with a team can truly be one of the most productive components to getting your idea off the ground.

Experience the benefits for yourself with these helpful tips:

  • 1

    Talk strengths, not titles. Have everyone discuss the strengths and opportunities that they’re looking to build on.

  • 2

    Create a team charter. Define the group’s goals/outputs and then assign roles and responsibilities. Jot this information down and place where everyone can see it — ideally on a Post-it® Big Pad!

  • 3

    Tackle problems early. If someone isn’t on the same page, discuss the issue as a team and resolve as quickly as possible.

  • 4

    Be cautious of too much consensus. Agreement is good…but too much of it can be counterproductive. Welcome counterpoints to any discussion and grow from them.

  • 5

    Take time to celebrate. As in any relationship, people love to know when they’re appreciated. Hand out positive words as needed and keep the momentum churning.
