PREPARE FOR THE MISSION
A mission statment is an important part of starting your team building in Johannesburg. A mission statment will provide clarity and direction for your team building in Johannesburg.
It is the shared commitment to a project that defines a team. A mission statment requires team memmbers to think about, discuss and come to agreement on the following questions:
- What is the work we were brought together to do?
- Why can this work best be done as a team?
- What will be different as a result of our working together?
- What will our work create for our company, our team and ourselves
- What will a successful outcome look like for our team?
- How will we measure our success going forward?
Mission statmemnts give a team guiding values, but goals give the team a real target for their endeavour. Goals should be something worth striving for to achieve important results that the team can provide for the company.
The best goals are S-M-A-R-T goals – Specific, Measureable, Acheivable, Relevant and Time-bound. Specifically to reduce call-back time to costomers.
It is important in a team environment that team members know what is expected of each of them. Without this knowledge, members cannot develop shared accountability or trest in the team.
To be effective, teams need to be clear about the means they will work together. Ground rules are guidelines for specific behaviours. Teams should agree on the ground rules and share responisbility for ensuring that they are followed.
Create an environment that inspires team members to share all their iedeas. Most great ideas are built by team fostering and initial thought. Sometimes is is the mad ideas that really spark a team’s creativity. Treat every idea as important and respect your team members.
