The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team
_Phil Jackson

It's one thing to gather individuals together to work for a pay, and it is another to build a resilient team.

Building a team is a technical skill, and it involves intentionality, because at the end of the road, your success as a leader is measured by the value you give to others.

We've curated significant tips you could use in building your team into one that would give you the most productive experience as a business owner.

Here are some of the tips:

1. Define the team's goals and objectives:

Failing to plan is you planning to fail. Have your plan on paper, or go digital, if you like, but ensure you have documented your plans for the team. Start by clarifying what your team is expected to achieve, outlining goals, specific deliverables, motivations and deadlines.

2. Determine team structure and roles:

Tanya's responsibility as an Account Auditor isn't the same as Bayo's as an Operations Manager. What we are basically saying is that you should identify the specific roles and responsibilities required to meet your team's objectives and determine how many people you need on your team.

3. Hire the right people:

Look for individuals who have the skills, experience, and attitudes that align with your team's goals and culture.

4. Foster teamwork and collaboration:

Encourage open communication, collaboration, and trust among team members. Regular team-building activities can also help strengthen team bonds.

5. Set clear expectations and guidelines:

Communicate expectations for performance, attendance, and behavior to help everyone stay on the same page.

6. Provide ongoing support and development:

Continuously support and develop your team members through training, coaching, and feedback to help them grow and succeed.

7. Celebrate successes:

Recognize and celebrate team and individual achievements to boost morale and foster a positive work environment. A raise in salary is never a bad idea, right?

Make the intentional effort to build your workforce into an indomitable team, your business would be better for it.

Remember, building a strong and successful team takes time and effort, but the results are well worth it.
