To create a powerful team culture, growth and relevancy, it is valuable for leaders to consider diversity of thought, perspective and experiences. Before leaders focus on being more strategic, communicate persuasively, and act decisively, they first need to be human-centric and heart-centred. Cohesive teams evolve through collectively aligning individuals with group goals, developing the team DNA, and empowering team members to establish appropriate behaviours and hold themselves accountable. A team with great dynamics tends to have members who trust each other, hold each other accountable and respect each other’s differences. Building an effective team requires achieving trust and loyalty through taking an interest in each individual, showing that you care and understanding their motivations. When you have people in roles that fit their talents, their energy and passion can fuel their own great performance and inspire the same from their colleagues.
