Teamwork is definitely the best work! Sometimes getting a team to come together regularly can be difficult with everyone’s conflicting schedules. Here are some tips on creating teamwork synergy in the workplace.
Set a time
Make sure there is a regular scheduled meeting time for the team to meet, and stick to this time. Very often, many teams set up the time but after a month or two, people start missing meetings or in general folks become lazy. A team can better stick to a set time if there is something to look forward to in the meeting. Perhaps host a giveaway or have some other incentive for being on time to the meeting and attending? Think outside the box a bit here.
Meet In person
Sometimes folks’ have to dial in if they are working from home. That’s OK, but what I think is not OK to people to conference in when they can just be in attendance. I’ve found that face to face conversations are the most productive conversations.
Everyone should bring something to the table
This should be established before teamwork is started. Set goals and assign specific tasks to individuals. Outside of one’s own tasks, make sure that everyone works on other aspect of a project or goal. This way, everyone is involved and synergy is flowing. Brainstorm together and help one another. Listening is a big part of this process.
