Ch 3: Developing & Rewarding an Effective Team

About This Chapter

Give your managers a healthy dose of knowledge on how to develop and reward an effective team in this chapter. Managers will explore what makes a group stick and how to turn each individual into a member of the team.

Developing & Rewarding an Effective Team - Chapter Summary

Team building doesn't have to be rocket science; let our expert business instructors break it down for your management staff in these brief video lessons. We'll help managers understand what goes into forming a solid group and finding each employee a place as a team member. The lessons in this chapter discuss:

  • Increasing group cohesion
  • Aligning individual and group goals
  • Team-based reward systems

These videos are perfect for an organizational corporate training event; the lessons are short, leaving room for lots of good discussions and input from leadership. Use the chapter quizzes as a discussion guide as you have managers respond to the questions and then discuss the topic together. Not enough time in the schedule for an event? Have your managers complete the lessons on their own and complete the chapter test to make sure they captured the key information.

How It Helps

  • Fosters positive relationships: As your managers learn to make team building a deliberate, on-going process they will improve the relationships between the members of the team.
  • Increases satisfaction: Employees who feel like they are part of something are happier employees, and here your managers will learn how to make that happen.
  • Coordinates missions: When your managerial staff connect individual goals to team goals and team goals to organizational goals, your company will work together as a hyper-coordinated whole.
  • Informs reward processes: Reward systems which cost the company money with little or no increase to productivity and satisfaction are counterproductive. Here managers will gain a better understanding of effective reward strategies and ensure they are getting the biggest bang.

By the end of this chapter, managerial employees will be able to:

  • Increase group cohesion through effective team building
