Executive Leadership Tips: Promote Teamwork Within Your Organization

Most organizations need a solid group of people working together to make it successful. Executive managers need to be able to put together effective teams for projects, both in response to problems and to deal with the everyday tasks that keep a business running.

Set clear goals. While each team member may have a different role, everyone should be working toward a common goal. Make your expectations clear for the team and individuals. Organization is an important part of teamwork and keeping everyone on the same page is vital to ensuring that things run smoothly. It can help to remind your staff of the organization's goals—short and long term—while also keeping you on track.

Tie team success to individual success. Assign duties based on the strengths of your employees. As their abilities contribute to the success of the team, the more staff members will feel comfortable as a team. Always acknowledge your team's successes, especially as a team but also as individuals. An employee can sometimes feel overlooked on a team, so hearing praise from the Executive Leader can reassure that employee that their contributions are recognized and appreciated. Acknowledgment of positive achievements can be done publicly or in private, whichever you believe would benefit your team and employees the most. However, just as praise should be done publicly, always remember that in most cases discipline should be done privately.

Listen, listen, listen. Encourage feedback from your staff, both what works and what needs work. As Executive Leader, you must make the big decisions for your company, so the more information you have the better able you are to make those decisions. You can arrange formal "status-update" meetings to see how your staff is doing, or have a casual "open-door" policy where employees can stop by to chat about work. Employees can provide new ideas as well as give the executive manager a heads-up about potential problems.

Take care of problems quickly. Managing a team often involves managing personalities as well as work. As Executive Leader, it is vitally important that you sort out small problems before they become big ones. Small conflicts in one part of a team or office can affect the productivity of the entire team. Encourage your employees to voice their issues and concerns as they come up. Keep an eye on your team and try to anticipate problem areas, but also give your team some space to work out problems themselves.

Don't force it. Not every situation or project requires a team approach, and forcing your employees to work together in a situation where one or a few individuals working independently would be more efficient can cause friction and damage office morale. Finding the right balance of team-oriented tasks and those that are better handled by individuals is an important responsibility of an executive manager.

Teamwork can be a great asset to any organization, and it is up to the Executive Leader to foster effective teamwork. Finding the right balance of teamwork and individual work for your company can lead to a successful business.
