The highly effective team formula is an easy way to create a high performing team that will achieve its goals. It involves five elements:

1️⃣ Create a safe environment to share ideas;

2️⃣ Provide clear goals;

3️⃣ Give everyone a voice;

4️⃣ Encourage collaboration;

5️⃣ Have fun together.


Highly effective team meeting.


1. Create an environment where people feel safe to share their ideas.

In order to build a successful team, you need to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable sharing their opinions and ideas. This means creating a culture where people feel free to speak up without fear of being criticized or ridiculed. It also means creating a space where it is safe to fail.



2. Provide clear goals and objectives.

To do this, you must first define what success looks like for your team. You should also make sure that everyone understands how their role fits into achieving those goals. Finally, you should ensure that each member of your team has a clearly defined set of responsibilities and is aligned to the goals. Team communication is key to promote alignment within your teams.



3. Give everyone a voice.

Once you have identified the key elements of your team’s success, you need to give them a chance to share their ideas. This will help you understand what makes your team tick and where you might need to adjust things. It will also allow you to identify any potential roadblocks that might prevent your team from reaching its full potential.

Having a tool like Teamgage Huddle to collect anonymous employee feedback can provide a safe space for all members to share ideas or raise concerns (especially if they are introverts).



4. Encourage collaboration.

Collaboration is one of the keys to building a successful team. You should encourage your team members to work together as much as possible. If you find yourself having to do more than one task at once, then you should consider delegating some tasks to other people.
