Measuring Team Effectiveness

You’ve spent months interviewing applicants, hiring new employees, and training each one to become an effective member of your team. You’ve spent a lot of time looking at each employee as an individual, but now it’s time to take a step back.

Are all of the members of your team working together well – as a team?

That was the point, right? Forming an effective team?

So now you have to determine whether or not your team is working effectively and there are three main things you should look for:

  • Are we, as a team, hitting our targets and reaching our goals?
  • Do we need to improve our workflows, procedures, and processes?
  • Does everyone on the team get along on a personal level?

If you answered YES to all three questions than it’s safe to say you’ve done an excellent job with your team building efforts. If you answered NO to any of those questions than you need to figure out why and make changes to your goals, procedures, or even to the team as a whole.

How effective is your team?

Thanks again,
