I Love It When A Plan Comes Together.

I Love It When A Plan Comes Together. You might remember the television series of the 1980s called the “A-Team” There was a film made about it recently too. The A Team is about a fictional group of ex United States Special Forces personnel who work as soldiers of fortune, while on the run from the Army after being branded as war criminals for a “crime they didn’t commit”. The A-Team always acted on the side of good and helped the oppressed. The Team consisted of. Hanibal Smith. Hanibal was the leader and came up with all the plans. Faceman. Face was the con artist who would disguise himself as someone else to get past security. B.A. Baraccas. B.A. was the muscle man and he would do all the tough jobs. Murdock. Murdock was the crazy man and he would act as a distraction. What is a team? A team is a small number of people with complementary skills who are committed to a common purpose and goals. Teams are made up of members with complementary skills which allows each member to maximise his or her strengths and minimise his or her weaknesses. Team members need to help one another by doing different parts while working on the same plan. There are different personality types within a team. No two people are the same and it is unusual to have a team of people with all the same personality type. It is important to recognize the different roles of the team members. By identifying our Team Roles, we can ensure that we use our strengths to the advantage of the team and that we manage our weaknesses. The information about the team roles is sourced from the following website. http://www.belbin.com/rte.asp?id=8 http://www.belbin.com/content/page/49/BELBIN%28uk%29-2011-TeamRoleSummaryDescriptions.pdf What are the nine team roles? 1. The plant. The plant, so called because one person of this type is planted in the team. Plants are highly creative, imaginative, free thinking and good at solving problems. They tend to ignore accidents and are too preoccupied to communicate effectively. 2. The Monitor Evaluator. The Monitor Evaluator is needed to provide a logical eye, make impartial judgements where required and to weigh up the team’s options in a dispassionate way. They lack drive and ability to inspire others and they can be overly critical. 3. Coordinator. The coordinators are needed to focus on the team’s objectives, draw out team members and delegate work appropriately. They can be seen as manipulative and they offload their own share of the work. 4. Resource Investigator. The resource investigator is outgoing, enthusiastic and communicative. They explore opportunities and develop contacts. They are over optimistic and lose interest once the initial enthusiasm has passed. 5. Implementers. Implementers are practical, reliable, efficient and can turn ideas into actions and organises work that needs to be done. They are inflexible and slow to respond to new possibilities. 6. Completers Finishers. Completers finishers are most effectively used at the end of a task, to “polish” and scrutinise the work for errors, subjecting it to the highest standards of quality control. They tend to work alone and are reluctant to delegate. 7. Teamworkers. Teamworkers are cooperative, perceptive and diplomatic. They listen and avert friction. They are indecisive in crunch situations and avoid confrontations. 8. Shapers. Shapers provide the necessary drive to ensure that the team kept moving. They are challenging and dynamic and thrive on pressure and overcome obstacles. They are prone to provocation and offending other peoples feelings. 9. Specialist. Specialists are single minded, self starting and dedicated. They provide knowledge and skills. They contribute only on a narrow front and dwell on technicalities. End of sourced information. Do you know what role you play in your team? Even as team leader you will naturally have one of the 9 roles. Without using other team members to perform the roles you are less capable of you will be much less successful. What is a virtual team? In the online world we build teams of people who are located in different areas, countries and time zones. This is known as a virtual team or a geographically dispersed team. With modern technology it is possible using the internet and telecommunication to work together on the same project. Members of virtual teams may never meet face to face. Here is a simple example of a virtual team. You hire someone in the USA to host your website. You hire someone in India to do your graphic design. You hire someone in the Philippines to take telephone calls and live chat. You hire someone in the UK to write articles. You hire someone in Canada to do advertising. Team building is a huge subject and there is too much to write about here in this blog. I hope I have given you enough basic information to help you build your own successful team.
