High-performance teams are valued within an organization. But how can one differentiate between a results and performance oriented team and one that is not? Here are 5 characteristics that should help you do so.
Members of teams that are performance-oriented tend to have high levels of enthusiasm. They are enthusiastic about all aspects of a project, right to the littlest detail and they are genuinely invested in seeing projects through to the end. Enthusiasm in all forms tends to be infectious and can spreads also pretty quickly.
Members of teams that are performance-oriented are dedicated to their jobs. When given projects or work assignments, they see them through the end and make-sure that all aspects of their assignment/project are correct, down to the smallest detail. They also pay great attention to detail and will not skip over parts of a project in order to reach a completion date quicker.
3. Decision-making Power
Members of performance-oriented teams have the freedom to make decisions about projects, capabilities, and colleagues etc, which are well within reason of course. This freedom to make necessary decisions without having to dog a superior for permission is what allows high-performance teams to produce extraordinary results.
4. High Levels of Collaboration
In performance-oriented teams with ingrained group cohesiveness, it is evident that team members get along with each other extremely well. They provide able assistance whenever they can and in case of any problem/issue, they can step in immediately to pick up slack because they are well-primed on what their team-members are doing most of the time.
5. Shared Vision
And finally, the most important characteristic of all. In a team that always performs above and beyond the mark, you will find that all the members of the team possess a united vision about the company and its values. They are aware of a company’s values, share the company’s values and actively work towards upholding those values!
Remember, a high-performance team will not just possess one of these characteristics. Rather they possess of these characteristics and maybe even more, though those may be specific to the field they are working in!
