When teams are forming everybody wonders WHY they are here? What their potential fit is? and whether others will accept them?
People need some kind of answer to continue.
- What answer are you supplying them with?
- When is the last time you and a member of the leadership team went through new employee orientation?
- How clear are you of WHY you are on this project?
- Who could answer those questions? Why haven’t they?
- How will you know when orientation is done and the team can move to step 2, in creating high performance teams?
- What factors led to choosing the team members?
- Does each team member have the needed role capacity, skilled capabilities, time span management, values & commitment…to be part of the team?
