My name is Helen Vella, Vella and Associates, business coach, consultant, trainer and author. This segment is about team communication. There's nothing more important then having your communication within your team. If you don't have good communication within your team, the team is going to fall apart. Once that happens, it's no good for the organization, for the structure of the team, the structure of the company, no morale, no respect, no balance. So the key to success is to have respect and balance within the team. Keep your team updated all the time with what is going on. Have regular meetings, regular updates and ask for feedback. As a team leader you shouldn't just be dictating to your team, you should be getting brainstorming sessions going on so you can share the knowledge. Also make sure that there's even distribution of delegation. So when you're delegating within your team, make sure that you don't have favorites and that you don't overload certain people and you don't let other people off. What you've got to do is you've got to be fair, and be balanced. Delegate evenly, make sure that everyone knows what they're doing. Get feedback from them so that they understand your delegation, they understand your instruction. If they don't understand that your instruction, then again, you're not going to have balance, you're not going to have the right respect either. To gain respect you have to have communication and you have to have feedback. Have a team incentive so that all working together. If they've got one goal to work for together, then this is going to build even a stronger team. It builds good camaraderie between them. So some of the keys to success for a good team, for good communication is to have respect and balance, keep them updated, brainstorm and delegate evenly. But most importantly, be fair.
