My name is Helen Vella, Vella and Associates, business coach, consultant, trainer and author. This segment is about team building. It's essential that you build good teams. Building good teams in your organization is going to help motivate everyone. So get your people together and find out who you're going to put on teams. What you should be doing is getting a good cross section of staff on each team. This is going to build relationships when you build your teams together and everyone should be involved. You should avoid segregation. So if you're going to build teams, then that means everyone from the receptionist to the CEO, everyone should be part of a team, nobody should be left out. It's good for morale. If you leave someone out or you segregate people, then morale is not going to be as high and you would want it to be and the whole idea of building teams is so that you can get teamwork and you can get different activities within the team. Have incentives as well for teams, this is a good thing. And always have good communication. You should have open, honest communication within the team. But avoid blaming people, make sure that you don't segregate people out, make sure you don't put people on the spot. You want to build the relationship, you want to get people together and you want to build the team. Have team games, have team incentives. Make sure that they know that they're part of the team, what their role is, what they're expected of and what you're going to do for them as a team leader. As being part of a team, speak up, have lots of brainstorming sessions as well so that everybody knows what's going on. Have regular team meetings, regular updates, e-mails, notices, have things on notice boards that get them involved. Get them together, build relationships and you'll have a great team.
