No part of your business can be considered insignificant. This statement is especially true when it comes to defining the formation of your project teams. The key to proper formation is controlled by the critical functioning that will be required of the team itself.
If you truly understand how your team should function, it becomes quite easy to design the team’s formation. Many times, this process is incorrectly performed in reverse order – sometimes by default. In other words, teams are formed with individuals who are available and accessible but then you are often faced with the difficult process of attempting to “mold” them into what you really needed to have done in the first place. This is seldom easy to do and can be extremely stressful most times.
There is a saying that applies to this subject. The phrase is “Form follows function”. When the intended function is known, the formation of your team becomes somewhat self-evident.
Entrepreneurs who understand our particular strategies will purposely design their teams differently than many other business people might. This is a huge advantage for entrepreneurs who are not “locked in” to a particular set of individuals and/or staff personnel.
What Do I Want To Accomplish?
“On Your Mark, Get Set . . .”
Once your team has been formed, it important that you provide the necessary directions and inspiration that may be needed. If you have accomplished your goals for the establishment of the team, you will benefit greatly by making sure that each team member has a clear vision of their role and its importance to the overall objectives.
It is also usually a very good idea to let each of them know that you will be as “engaged” in their efforts as much as possible and that you will be quick to provide them with feedback so that they are never doubtful as to their contributions to the team.
With clear goals, a definite understanding of their roles and their personal value to the team – your team should be ready to reach your objectives. Your role will then be to delegate properly so that the entire reason for creating this team will be realized. Good people with clear goals and ample motivation and encouragement usually translates to a very high rate of success.
