An interesting article from the Harvard Business Review on team effectiveness, and how to build a successful team. Thanks to Vicky Russell for sharing the link on Twitter. This relates to my previous article posted on Maximillion.co.uk (http://www.maximillion.co.uk/news/team-important-individual-characteristics-within-team) about the importance of individual expression in building a successful team. When it comes to team building you have to look at how prospective members of the team will interact, not just their technical capabilities. Successful teams equal more than their component parts. For a team to achieve this individuals must communicate, share information, challenge each other and aim for the same goal.
Valid to consider the functional role and the psychological role each member of a team plays. Focus only on the functional role and you are crossing your fingers that a talented group of people will become a successful team. Consider the type of person they are (psychological role) and their interaction with others. Then you have a greater chance of building a successful team.
