Thrive as a Team: 3 ways to create a badass team culture
Updated: Jan 5
Creating a strong, motivated, and collaborative team at every level of a company is highly important to that company's success. A company cannot make serious gains without teamwork. Delegating is the language of successful people.
What is team culture: Team culture is the shared values, practices and beliefs that guide the way your team interacts with one another (including customers/clients).
When a talented team is able to work together in a positive space it creates a productive, creative and loyal workspace.
Three ways you can create a Badass team culture:
- Don’t be a robot, social time is important A big factor that has a huge impact on great team culture is friendship. Ideally, you want your team to like each other and form strong bonds. This encourages collective goals and open communication.
- Be the leader you needed. One defining factor of a great team is the relationship team members have with their management. You have an impact on how comfortable your team feels in approaching you. A great team culture comes when the relationship is one of mentorship, instead of a boss/employee type relationship.
- Develop individual and collective strengths in the team as often as possible Encourage your team members to learn. Show them the importance of teaching other team members. A team is only as strong as the weakest member. By encouraging your team to teach one another, you not only enrich bonds but strengthen capabilities.
