How To Build An Effective Team

Larry Kryske's picture

Building an effective team is as much an art as a science. The principal reason for this dichotomy is the involvement of people.

The management of people represents the science and involves time-tested practices and procedures. The leadership of people represents the art and taps into the nature of humans, their talents, creativity, and energy. The key player in the team-building process is the team leader.

He is the person who trains (with or without other trainers), cultivates, and motivates the team. His goal is to create what William Shakespeare described in Henry V, "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers."

This Knowledge Pill will discuss both the science and the art aspects and will provide proven, practical ways to build an effective team.

I recently undertook the endeavor of starting my own business, and I was the sole employee for the first several months until I made enough money to support the hiring of other employees to help. When it came time to bring other people on board I knew what I didn't want in a team - believe me, I've had enough terrible bosses to know I didn't want to be one! This course taught me the difference between leading and managing employees, and I'm really glad I learned how to tell the two apart. I've always been an independent leader but to guide my employees to be the best they can and want to work for my company was a challenge and a process. I now know how to be an effective motivator and lead my business to new heights. We're only as strong as our weakest link, and this class taught me to apply practical solutions that actually work.
