As our business worlds become more disruptive, we need teams of all types—project-based, functional, cross-functional, self-managed, virtual, and more—to be adaptive. A team that’s adaptive continually self-adjusts based on changes in its external and internal worlds, and at the same time it is guided by a larger aspiration.
When the way work is done elevates and amplifies individual and team thriving, it can have a positive ripple effect with a team’s customers, partners, and the rest of the organization, as well as with the loved ones and communities of team members. So, it’s critical to build thriving teams intentionally.
Gusto reports that 37% of workers said being able to work with a great team was the top reason for staying at a company.
Wisdom Works has helped advance countless thriving teams in companies around the globe. We’ve learned that teams are more apt to flourish when five categories are given keen attention: Best Team Makeup, Clear Team Structures, Essential Team Skills, Committed Self-Leadership, and Positive Team Climate.
These categories are interdependent, working together to build a dynamic system of structures in which team thriving—the team’s evaluation of itself as well-resourced, mentally, emotionally, and physically, to meet its demands and evolve—are more likely to occur.
