Why Improving the Team is Responsibly of Everyone

Why Improving the Team is Responsibly of Everyone

We all know the importance of building teams. I am also sure that many of us have heard about the Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing model for team building and team development. However, the journey should not stop once the team is built. Of course there should be continuous improvements to team performance and also team members. But, who is responsible for this task of continuous improvements? Is it only the leader responsibility? Or leader responsibility in addition to team members?

Unfortunately, a lot of teams members throw the responsibility of improving the team to the leader. They believe that this is only the leader  task and they have nothing to do with it. Well, lets look at the word TEAM. This word is: Together Everyone Achieves More. Therefore, improvements should be the mission of everyone in the team and not single man show. The famous teamwork quote says: “You cannot clap with only one hand” and it is the same for the leader. If the leader is left alone in improving the team, then he/she might not be able to do so. Moreover, team members should not underestimate themselves. They might be able to see things from a different angle and therefore assist the leader to come up with better ideas and decisions on what to do in order to improve the team.

All the best…
