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 team 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.

So what exactly are team dynamics? Team dynamics put simply are the behavioral relationships between team members.

Effective leadership is a strong factor that contributes to positive team dynamics. As a good manager, you must consider not only the goals of a team but the dynamics of the team itself.

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.

How can you build strong team dynamics?

Our Myers-Briggs Type Indicator program could be a great place to start moving toward that successful team dynamic you are searching for. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) is the world’s most widely-used personality inventory. We use it to help you and your team discover and leverage the various ways they make decisions, strategize and access information.

DiSC Training ranks as our #1 most requested leadership training program. We designed it to maximize quick, high-impact learning and positive change. With this event, improve team dynamics by strengthening communication, motivation and cooperation.

Or, if your team is juggling a whole lot of work and could benefit from a little bit of clowning around, we have many programs for that too!
