Levels of Teamwork
The nature of the work determines how much of a team you need to be. The more interdependent people are, the more closely members need to work together. At Acorn Consulting we refer to 3 levels of interdependence.
Level 1: Members have to communicate decisions and activities
Level 2: Members need to coordinate their activities
Level 3: Members need to collaborate by engaging in joint problem solving and brainstorming. They need to challenge each other's ideas and work together on developing plans and managing execution.
Basics of Good Teamwork
At all levels good team work rests on the 4 basic elements of goals, roles, process and relationships. High performance teams pay attention to all 4 elements.
Goals: What we're trying to accomplish together
Roles: Who does what and how we handle overlaps and interdependencies
Process: How we run our business and how we work together
Relationships: Communication and influence skills for getting work done
