Weak Organization of Teams

weak organization of teams 300x225 Weak Organization of TeamsHealthy teamwork development will face constant challenges.  Every team has a built-in tendency to get out of balance organizationally on one side or the other.

In the under-organized team, its leaders struggle largely with efficiency: how to get things done. Due to inadequate organization, team leaders find it difficult to pull the right “levers” and push the right “switches” to make the team work effectively

Here are 19 signs of  weak organization of  teams:

  1. Team leaders are unsure which activities they are responsible for.
  2. Team leaders find their ability to communicate and delegate responsibilities to very weak.
  3. Team members are not sure where they can best serve.
  4. Team members are not sure of their talents and where they can plug into the workings of the team.
  5. A major expenditure of time and effort is required to get programs adopted and implemented.
  6. The team spends way too much time in getting the strategy of the team adopted and working.
  7. The workload of the team is unevenly distributed.
  8. Some team members are overworked while others are left out entirely.
  9. The team works more like a “committee” and not a “team.”
  10. Team leaders are slow to discern and respond to the needs of team members.
  11. Team members are only dimly aware of the overall goals. This is caused by team members not being informed about the goals and activities of the team.
  12. The team experiences significant overlapping of programs and duplication of effort.  Repetition of efforts is a very strong negative for healthy teamwork development.
  13. Team leaders find themselves in a quandary over what priorities, goals, and strategy are needed for team success.
  14. The key shortcomings of team development: inadequate organization and feedback.
  15. Leaders are overwhelmed with administrative challenges.
  16. Leaders can become isolated due to elaborate structure, specialized duties, and numerous committee responsibilities.
  17. Creativity is not encouraged or allowed.
  18.  Meetings are carefully orchestrated with minimal team participation.
  19. The unique personality of each team member is ignored.

These 19 points can help any team leader grow a healthy and productive team if they are not ignored.
