"Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean" How to Improve Teamwork in the Workplace "There's no 'I' in 'team" By working together, people can accomplish far more than they could alone. Staff can be more productive when they work together. Studies find that teamwork improves:

INNOVATION ENHANCES PROBLEM-SOLVING AND BOOSTS PRODUCTIVITY Starting the group Set GROUND RULES at beginning of task or project. Each team member has equal SHARE of work so no one feels frustrated or resentful GUIDELINES regarding individual contributions to

group. For example: Everyone will come to meetings on time. Encourage everyone to contribute to discussion and the generation of ideas. Effective Communication Listen carefully to what others are saying,

hearing ACKNOWLEDGE other team members' INSIGHTS and offer ENCOURAGEMENT Build on SUGGESTIONS offered by other team members Keep a record of what is said during team meetings, and overall progress

Solve problems and resolve disputes Team leader resolves conflicts effectively. REFLECTIVE LISTENING Did you: Allow speakers to state their thoughts or opinions without INTERRUPTING Actively try to remember the important facts or points made by others Jot down any details or points raised by others REPEAT BACK or SUMMARIZE, points of view expressed?

Giving and receiving constructive feedback in groups If you describe what you actually SEE and HEAR, this reduces the other person's inclination to react defensively. Reveal your own position or feelings.

For example, "I FELT intimidated when you argued your point," rather than: "You were very aggressive." Describing your own reaction leaves the other person free to use this feedback or not 23 Stakeholders 24 Who is a Stakeholder?

Includes individuals and organizations who: Are INVOLVED in the project May positively or negatively affect the project May exert INFLUENCE over the project or results 25 Stakeholders
