Discover the building blocks of an effective team
Help get the best out of the team!
Various obstacles can stand in the way of a good cooperation of a team. Think of cock behavior, the wrong focus or miscommunication. Often, as part of a team, we are not even aware that this is the case, let alone know what exactly is causing those blockages. The following 7 building blocks open the door to effective collaboration in a team:
The absolute basis of any well-functioning team. Without trust, teamwork is virtually impossible. However, creating trust is the trickiest part of team development. That really does not happen automatically and you cannot claim it. Team trust is about seeing and using each other’s qualities, but also about knowing each other’s idiosyncrasies.
- Healthy conflicts
These almost always arise automatically in teams because of the different perspectives. Disagreements can generate useful debates. In a team it is important that everyone’s opinion can be heard. It makes people think differently, and increases knowledge and insight, creating room for innovation.
Team involvement is critical to business success. If a team is involved, team members will be interested in what they are doing, committed to the team assignment and willing to go the extra mile.
- Take responsibility
As a team, make sure that you understand each other and that everyone takes their own responsibility. And speak to each other about this too.
- Vision & Strategy
Success is achieved by working together, where the team comes first instead of the individual.
- Vision and strategy
Look beyond the daily work. A clear vision of the future helps to reach the dot on the horizon.
- Mission and inspiration
Look at the big picture, at business sustainability and long-term success. Everyone is busy but being alone is not enough. Long-term success requires long-term thinking. What do we do it for?

Insight into the needs and wishes of the team
Do you recognize Graves’ colors and Lencioni’s model? That’s right, because these theories, among other things, form the basis of the new TeamScan. This scan assesses how team members experience their work (environment) on the 7 building blocks and provides insight into the most important points for attention for growth and development. Incidentally, a team does not have to perform badly to improve.
