A recent article, 7 Ways to Improve Team Efficiency and Productivity by Dani Zehra says that managing a team is not easy—gathering different kinds of people together results in conflicts and lots of miscommunication.  However, if handled properly and working towards a goal, this group of people can be a dynamic team that yields higher productivity and efficiency. 

Here are seven tips to help you build a winning team for your business. 

Team building activities

Working together in one accord will foster efficiency and productivity. Get your team involved in activities that can build and strengthen relationships with each other. 

Training

Basically work productivity depends on the skills/expertise of the employees. Allow employees to attend conferences, webinars, and training programs to increase their skills. 

Divvy up responsibilities

Understand your team strengths and weaknesses so you are able to assign tasks based on strengths, and help you determine the skills your team members need to improve. It will help your whole team stay productive in agile offices

Clear definition of work assignment

Tasks must be assigned with detailed instructions and what is expected of each person. When there is transparency about who does what, people become more responsible for their individual assignments. 

Good communication

Let your team speak, listen and understand their needs.  Listen also to their ideas and suggestions—these may be useful and will improve quality and productivity. 

Financial Incentives

People work to sustain financial needs, and some extra financial incentives will motivate your team to go the extra mile. 

Proper management style

Find out which management style would be best for your team. You can adopt a free-reign leadership style if your team members are veterans, and you can implement a more paternal leadership style if your team members are still learning the reigns.
