How to Build Good Team Dynamics

You know it when you see it: a team that just works.

What sets a successful team apart from an average one? It’s all in the dynamics.


A great example of team dynamics: Cirque Du Soleil.

Everyone involved has got to be able to work together through trust, communication and cooperation. It isn’t just the people you see on stage either, it’s also all the hands working behind the scenes making sure the show goes off without a hitch.

The same goes for teams in any other setting, like within your own company. Every person has qualities they are born with or developed throughout life. Some members of your team are introverts, some extroverts. Some are creative, others are analytical. Some people prefer to be behind the scenes while others desire the spotlight.

Combining different personalities is essential for a well-rounded team, but it should be done with some thought and planning. Discovering and capitalizing on the unique qualities within your group is sure to create a harmonious and productive working relationship among them.

Even with differences among individuals, the most accomplished teams have many of the same characteristics:

  • They know each other well.
  • They understand each other.
  • They enjoy working together.

A high performance team will typically increase productivity by 30% within 12-18 months, and a team-based organization will use 34% fewer labor hours to accomplish the same work.

These two statistics alone (and there are many more) are enough to demonstrated that as a good manager, you must consider not only the goals of a team, but who the dynamics of the team itself.

Our Myers-Briggs Type Indicator program could be a great place to start moving toward that successful team dynamic you are searching for. Or, if your team is juggling a whole lotta work and could benefit from a little bit of clowning around, we have a program for that too!
