Building Teams: Broadening the Base for Leadership Copyright 2014 by The University of Kansas What is a team? A team is a group of people with a commitment to one another, to the team, to a high level of achievement, to a common goal, and to a common vision. Copyright 2014 by The University of Kansas The advantages of teams:

A team broadens what individuals can do. Several heads mean a wider range of ideas. Teams have a great array of talents and skills. Team members learn new skills from their colleagues. Teamwork is more efficient than a number of individuals working singly. Teamwork provides relief when someone's having a

problem. Team workers are more effective. A team member has more ownership of what she's doing. Good teams can build leaders. A shared vision keeps everyone moving forward. Copyright 2014 by The University of Kansas The disadvantages of teams: Team decision-making takes longer. Team effort can be wasted effort. The team's success may hang on the work of the least effective team member. A team might gain momentum in the wrong

direction. The work of team can bog down in interpersonal issues, resentments, and blame. Team members may be reluctant to tell other about their unsatisfactory work. Lost motivation for lack of individual recognition. Copyright 2014 by The University of Kansas When should you build teams? Creating a strategic plan for addressing community issues.
