Clarify roles and responsibilities.
Need some tips for team building? Whether you’re planning an event or working on team building long term, a big challenge for teams is a lack of clarity on individual roles and responsibilities. Clarify roles, institute accountability and achieve your common vision and goals.
For upcoming events, projects or during your quarterly review, consider this:

- Where do roles and responsibilities overlap between individual team members?
- Where do roles and responsibilities overlap with other departments?
- Do you have the right strategies for accountability in place?
- Are they afraid of failure?
