Four strategies to boost team’s cohesiveness
1. Establish your team mission early
This is to make sure that you and your team members are on the same page and moving towards the same goals. And depending on the team nature and qualities of team members, you need to set a general mission statement and a project goal and clarify team roles.
2. Set a clear communication plan
A well-stated communication plan can serve different tasks, including methods to communicates important information to key stakeholders. Moreover, it allows team members to work effectively, follow the right direction, and a clear guide of how to solve conflicts.
3. Play to your team members’ strengths
“A successful person finds the right place for himself. But a successful leader finds the right place for others.” – John C. Maxwell
This is because when each individual’s strengths are brought together, it establishes a sense of teamwork and team comprehensiveness.
4. Confrontation with healthy approaches
As conflict cannot always be avoided, leaders are recommended to regularly give candid feedback and resolving suggestions in a 1:1 setting. This process contributes to a transparent and trusting environment.
