14 Ways Successful Leaders Build Their Dream Teams

Behind every great leader is an even greater team. The most successful leaders support and motivate their teams to reach their fullest potential in the following ways.

1. Set Clear Expectations

Even before being hired, an employee understands what leaders expect of their role, not just individually, but how their function impacts the success of the team.

2. Encourage Team Members to Play Off Each Other’s Strengths

Where one member may lag in a certain skill or ability, there’s at least one other that makes up for it, and vice-versa.

3. Give Recognition

Team members are recognized and rewarded for their hard work and value contributions; leaders give thoughtful consideration to new ideas.

4. Develop Team and Individuals Goals

Successful leaders talk through team and individual goals, as well as help members, work through challenges.

Leaders align all members to specific goals and values, with an understanding of why they’re important.

5. Perform Regular Performance Evaluations

Not just of the team members, but also of the leadership team. Leaders give team members insights into how they are performing, meeting their goals and contributing to the organization.

They are also given the opportunity to supply their feedback, with the trust and confidence it will be appropriately received.

6. Ask for Help

Employees are much more likely to feel comfortable sharing their ideas when leaders willingly ask for it. Humble leaders are better at retaining loyal employees, as each member feels their contributions are valuable.

7. Encourage Their Dream Teams to Come to a Consensus

It may take longer to arrive at a consensus, but it will ensure each member is onboard with full commitment and enthusiasm.

8. Set Parameters for Arriving at a Consensus

Leaders set guidelines for debating new ideas, creating lists of pros and cons, researching and investigating proposals, etc.

9. Promote Personal Bonds

There are team bonding sessions, which range beyond the confines of the workplace to establish deeper, more meaningful ties.

10. Have Open Communication Lines

Strong communication goes beyond set meetings or email exchanges; leaders highly encourage questions, suggestions and concerns.

11. Lead by Example

They walk the talk and inspire their teams to follow suit.

12. Know Themselves and Their Management Style

They understand how they work, as well as how their working style can impact others. Their management style is consistent, yet adaptable to changing circumstances.

13. Establish Ground Rules

Everyone is onboard with the prescribed workstyle and understands the protocol for problem-solving, communication and so on.

14. Provide Incentives

Incentives may vary from an extra day off, a bonus, flexible work hours and so on; members are aware of available incentives and motivated to achieve them.
