The Dynamic Energy Systems of Teams
When energy is fully flowing through team members, it creates collective strengths that do not come to the forefront otherwise. When teams lack sufficient energy or the flow of that energy is disrupted, teamwork fractures, which results in lower-quality interactions, decreased productivity, and lack of innovation.
The key to becoming more effective as a team is to increase the flow of energy by boosting energy generation through the 5 critical elements of Team Effectiveness that BRITE brings to the forefront.
5 Elements of Team Effectiveness
Mindsets: Teams with a shared understanding of who the team is and what they will be pursuing together are more effective.
Structure: Successful teams are built on a thriving team culture with diverse and capable individuals.
Psychological safety and cohesion: An environment where members feel safe to take personal risks and actively support one another is critical for team effectiveness.
Processes: The most effective teams process information through quality interactions, where team members actively engage, and new ideas emerge.
Performance skills: Teams that are agile in performing tasks and ensure collective accountability for outcomes drive organizational success.
