Managing A High Performance Team Effectively
High-Performance Teams are teams designed to be fast and powerful. High-Performance Teams succeed above and beyond standard norms over the long term. Managing high-performance teams effectively is a fundamental requirement for business success.
The difference between normal teams and high-performance teams lies in their ability to execute business strategy, meet targets and work with minimal managerial oversight.
A dysfunctional high-performance team is a result of the conflation of poor work issues such as,
Poorly thought-out decisions
Poor decision-making skills by team members can lead to poorly executed projects.
Unhealthy Intra-team competitiveness
When team bonds are weak, a lack of trust can occur which affects productivity and effectiveness.
Lack of Democracy
With minimal supervision from superiors, high-performance teams are expected to have a democratic leadership style, with diversity being encouraged and different viewpoints due to varying experience and critical thinking skills of members strongly considered.
A lack of democracy can result in disastrous decision-making.
Human Resource Managers are available to manage high-performance teams effectively in key areas such as,
Selection of Team Members and Team Bonding Exercises
Teams with diverse ethnic, gendered, and aged individuals allow for different perspectives and viewpoints which is essential in decision-making.
HR can build effective teams by pairing team members with the prerequisite knowledge, skills and expertise together in order to create effective teams.
When working closely with other individuals, good communication is key, transparency and frequent communication provides for a more in-sync team, enabling team members to exist on the same page at all times.
HR can schedule training sessions on communication and its importance between team members.
Quick Resolution of Conflicts
Having a diverse team with different levels of expertise, power, knowledge, and experiences enables teams to think creatively and lends itself to more thorough decision-making ability.
This can also lead to frequent disagreements and misassumptions. Solving conflict early and in a depersonalized manner helps to reduce unhealthy resentment and keeps team culture positive and open.
HR can provide assessments such as the DISC assessment to help each team member understand the behavior, personality, and thinking styles of fellow team members.
Collaboration is a principle that suggests that the collective input of individuals with differing skills, knowledge and expertise when directed at a goal or objective, results in a more thorough decision-making process.
Research has proven that when collaboration works, it advances the business efforts in organizations. HR can organize collaborative team-building exercises to help each individual in a team understand that together they can achieve more than a lone wolf.
Onboarding and Offboarding Team Members
When a new member joins a team, especially in the event that they join an already established team. It will be of immense importance to make new team members aware of the team dynamics, expectations and needs. This helps for more seamless integration.
In the event of a departure, handling the transition sensitively can help to keep the team mentally focused and reduce disruption in effectiveness and team productivity.
