How to build high-performing teams

Managing team relationships

Each person has their own preferences and drives. Without self-awareness and an awareness of others, a team will never be able to maximize their efforts. 

Looking at relationships between two people can be a helpful tool for other awareness. Using it, you can look at how to work best with others on the team, or review strengths, cautions, and tips for the relationship between two employees on your team.

This awareness of self and others helps everyone better understand each other and how to work best together. Have members of your team compare their behavioral similarities and differences, then consider how they can leverage their strengths and avoid potential areas of conflict.

As a manager, use your knowledge of behavioral drives to establish goals for each team member. What will be a stretch for them? How can their strengths best support the team? Tailor your advice based on each person’s needs.
