Much of your organization’s most important work likely gets accomplished through teams and not individuals. So why do we spend so much time and effort on understanding individual performance and so little on team performance?
This article about predicting whether a team will succeed offers three factors to consider:
- How good is the team’s leadership?
- How continuous is the team’s membership?
- How many goals is any one member working on at a given time?
If you want your staff to be better team players, change the emphasis from individual performance to team performance.
