High performing teams are what every organisation look for and should look for. High performing teams comprise highly motivated individuals. They are highly focused on goals and achieve exceptional business results. They are not made over night but right coaching and leadership can bring out the full potential of any team or individual more quickly. A high performing team can be identified as a set of individuals that consistently outperform all the other teams, committed towards a common goal and exceed organisation’s expectations. They will do whatever it takes to achieve their desired goals. Isn’t this what you want? Isn’t this what lacks in your organisations? Most of the HR professional will agree that it is not an easy task to build a high performance team but it is not impossible.
Organisations in every industry faces performance related challenges. Rarely can we find an individual with all the necessary requirements such as, high productivity, speed, exceptionally intelligent, highly motivated, extremely responsible etc. in the modern world. However teams can and would bridge this gap. People working together as one team will give you greater results than an individual does.
Some may say having qualified and experienced set of individuals working together will help to create a successful team. But this does not guarantee the success unless each of the team members contributes at a higher level towards completing their assigned work. For an example if a team member performing at 50% and another performing at 150% does not cover up for the low performing employee.
All of the members of these teams will have a clear understanding of a common goal and a vision on what they want to achieve. They hold the accountability and responsibility together to achieve greater results. They get together and create the vision and they are excited about it. They have clearly defined roles, ability to solve problem as it occurs and always conduct productive meetings.
Motivation plays a major role in building high performing teams. Maintaining the built teams is also a challenge and the team leadership has a significant role in this. Supervisors should take up the task of motivating the team members to work toward a common goal. Having team building sessions, team motivation sessions will also help to motivate the teams. High performing teams are essential for every organisation that operates in any industry since the modern day market place is dynamic and highly competitive. High performance teams will make a huge change in your organisation’s performance levels and increase overall productivity. Stepping in to the journey of achieving greater heights will be lot easier when everything would be achievable and enables the organisations to live in their dreams.
