Building Teams to Self-Manage and Grow

A good self-directed team can be like a wind-up car. You just pick a direction and off it goes. Marty Brounstein offers advice in how to build such a team at For Dummies. It starts with having regular meetings where team leaders keep each other informed, so that every team stays on the same page. Likewise, establish training as just a regular practice for your team. When it comes time to expand team responsibilities, get specific about the results you want to see, the parameters in which they are to work, and setting up checkpoints along the way for monitoring progress. As often as possible, observe the team’s areas for improvement and challenge them to find that improvement themselves. Only step in to fix things or provide your two cents when required.
