How To Build A Winning Executive Management Team

As businesses and organizations grow, it may be necessary to delegate management responsibilities. One effective method is through a management team, which presents employers with the opportunity to widen their employees' skillsets and expand their organizations. Each company is unique, but there are some key factors for an Executive Leader to consider when building any management team.

Is this long-term or short-term? There are a wide variety of reasons for creating a management team. Some are formed simply for one project or event. Sometimes it is in response to a problem or emergency in the organization. In some situations, teams are created as a permanent part of a business with an eye on expansion. Be sure you and your team are clear about the duration and how quickly you expect it to be assembled. Even if you create a management team for a short-term project, keep the door open for long-term possibilities.

Build on existing strengths. As an Executive Manager, you know the strengths and weaknesses of your organization and its employees. Choose staff members whose strong points will benefit the team but also whose weak points can be balanced by other team members. Since you will be entrusting each executive staff member with the responsibility of management, you must view this as a valuable opportunity for reliable employees to prove and improve their skills.

Set clear goals. Whether long-term or short-term, be sure you and your management team have clear goals at the outset, both as a team and as individual team members. Especially if the team is tasked to oversee other employees, there must be consistency. Trust your team to work toward your goals. While you, as the Executive Director, are the leader of your management team, allow team members the freedom to make decisions and work without supervision.

Link individual success to team success. Use your management team to create opportunities for individual growth. Just by recruiting an employee to become part of an executive team, you are showing him that you respect and trust his decision-making and management skills. Although teamwork is the most important aspect of a management group, finding ways to connect the success of the team (and ultimately the company) to the success of individual members gives them extra incentive to pull together.

Be willing to exclude or eliminate people who don't work as a team. This may be the hardest part of being an Executive Manager, but ultimately the health of your business or organization is at stake. Situations change, and even the most carefully organized team may not be the right mix of individuals, skillsets, or personalities. As an Executive Director, it is vitally important that you move or even eliminate team members who hurt the success of the team and company.

Building a management team is a big responsibility, not only for the members of the team but also for the Executive Leader of that team. Balancing personalities and work strengths and weaknesses is a skill that Executive Leaders should cultivate in order to expand and improve their organization.
