The Importance of Teaming

A team is more than just a group of individuals working together. High-performing teams have shared goals and coordinate individual members’ strengths to yield faster, better outcomes than individual work. As organizations look for ways to achieve peak performance, creativity, and innovation, they should consider how they may currently be creating roadblocks and what they can do to support high-performance teaming.

Effective Teaming

With a diverse set of complementary skills, high-performing teams are stronger together. They leverage each other’s expertise to achieve shared goals—building knowledge, rapport, and trust through shared experiences. This makes them better able to evolve and adapt in the face of challenges and uncertainty, increasing the speed of innovation and the quality of their results.

Creating the Right Team Spaces

Teams perform best when they have a place to call home—in virtual, physical, and hybrid environments. The workplace needs to support a team’s unique and specific interactions, allowing them to dial in just the right amount of information and coordinated efforts when needed.

Physical Environments

High-performing teams’ shared physical spaces need to provide access to the right amount of information-rich context and face-to-face interactions that support daily activities. Collaborative spaces should accommodate the needs of the whole team, with easy access to tools specific to the ways they work.

Virtual Environments

The collaborative technology high-performing teams use needs to do more than just send messages. It should shape and support the way their work is performed by offering an immersive experience that translates into meaningful interactions, more effective collaboration, and better results.
