8 Communal Traits That Exemplify an Ideal Team


  Collaborative teamwork is a crucial part of organizational structure.  As companies grow and recruit workers, the people who join companies have to work well together.  Specifically, because every organization has goals which can only be achieved through procedural cooperation.  Which begs the question, what does it take to create a good team?  What attributes are necessary for optimal teamwork within a professional context?


There’s No ‘I’ in Team:

Business Writer Geoffrey Whiting suggests that, “Every manager wants a team that makes their role easier by solving problems. You don't want to spend each day putting out fires or breaking up arguments. What you need is a successful team that you can encourage to do remarkable things for your organization. Building that team takes time and patience.” Here are a few characteristics that always enhance team dynamics:


  1.       Organization: Good teams function under rules, policies, and structure.  They adhere to clearly articulated guidelines in a way that facilitates tasks.
  2.       Honesty: Good teams work together on the basis of integrity.  People say what they mean, mean what they say, and honor their word when working together. 
  3.       Selflessness: Good teams comprise members who understand that not everyone should jostle for the spotlight at the same time.  Some roles require prominence, while others require humility. But all roles should ultimately advance the shared mission of the team.
  4.       Synchronization: Good teams manage time in an efficient way. Collective efforts should result in minimal waste of resources.
  5.       Civility: Good teams know how to make peace when conflicts and disagreements arise.  Interaction is always mature, polite and constructive at the end of the day.
  6.       Trustworthiness: Good teams are people who can count on one another to fulfill their duties.  Trustworthiness makes it easier to cooperate and coordinate.
  7.       Diversity: Good teams recognize that human rights are universal, and inalienable.  Dignity and respect are shared without prejudice or partiality.
  8.       Commitment: Good teams never quit.  They keep their eyes on the prize until the mission is accomplished.



            Teamwork boils down to mindful interaction.  The people who constitute a team should have good chemistry, and orderly configuration.  When teams are provided with a conducive environment for engagement, the sky’s the limit on what they can accomplish.
