Is the Fear of Succeeding Holding You Back?



I am sure every body have been on plenty of teams. Some good, some less than good. You have all probably also been through plenty of team building - also some good, some less than good. What is team building anyway? There are lots of definitions of team building but the concept I like is that team building consists of a great deal of activities for improving a work group's performance and attitudes through clarifying its goals as well as members' expectations of each other. Team building is not a one- time thing. It is an on-going process and that we accomplish a lot of it by monitoring and leveraging group process and group dynamics.

Building teamwork in the DNA of any organization isn't easy, but simultaneously not an impossible task to perform. It requires initiative, creativity, and most of all perseverance. According to Businessdictionary.com, team building refers to the capacity to identify and motivate team building individual employees to create a team that stays together, works together and achieves together.




Then I realised, I had spend to long already doing work for myself and necessary to get back to doing work for the high street, I missed the hubbub of building a big retail unit, the staffing issues, the employees training, taking a lot of money, KPI's and most importantly competing against other stores in the area to be the very best manager.

I think the initial step in starting an effective organization is usually to create a high energy, quality, and intensely positive "Action" team. I refer to them as "Fire Teams." The phrase Fire Team emanates from the military. The Fire Team concept was developed by the military to increase the tactical flexibility for small infantry operations. The Fire Team members experience training and life together bonding to make a powerful force to use for missions. Teams usually are made up of 4 soldiers. Each solider is trained and cross taught to play specific roles inside the team. Studies from the United States Army have indicated that the willingness to address hard is paintball a lot more heavily influenced by each associates resistance to failure in supporting another members of they. Together they can succeed while facing great odds.

Cooking something on the fire may be the next logical step. Since not many people can cook simultaneously, it's probably best to break this part down into meal courses. Have a couple of people cook some vegetables, a couple do the meat, and perhaps have some others do s'mores in case your team is very large enough you will want to come up with other things to cook.
