Teams on Thursday: Teams in Transition

With change becoming the new constant in today’s workforce, more than ever teams are now in transition – sometimes with new leadership, sometimes with new team members, often with both.

How do you create an environment for the team to go from 0-100 (or at least 60) with limited budgets, resources and time?

I am in the process of writing an article on essentials for teams in transition in which I explore six essential ingredients:
1. Creating a Common Vision and Goals
2. Clearly defining roles and responsibilities
3. Looking at Common Values
4. Identifying Trust and Respect
5. Looking at Individual and Team Strengths and Capabilities
6. Developing Effective Communication Strategies

How does your team rate on these? How much attention are you giving these factors?

Without a firm foundation teams cannot meet, or sustain, their optimal productivity.
What other ingredients do you see as essential for teams in transition?

Have a great week!
