How To Build A Corporate Team Step-By-Step

Sometimes it’s not clear how cross-team projects should be launched, function and proceed.

Follow these simple guidelines for accomplishing as a group what individuals on your team could not accomplish alone.

First, set up your basic parameters: a goal for the next meeting; roles; and type of discussion (e.g., brainstorming vs. goal setting). Be sure to include any earlier discussion points and agreements.

Then use the following framing questions. First ask:

  • Where are we so far?
  • Can we report the status of the project’s main elements, listing and including everything we know?
  • What do we want to achieve at this meeting, specifically?

At the next meeting, ask:

  • What is the best way to reach and/or exceed our goal for this meeting?
  • Should we brainstorm or share what we’ve learned and ¬†what we’ve prepared?
  • How should we best think this through as a group, inclusive of everyone’s input?
  • Let’s throw out a few options and work out how to move the needle forward?

Finally, make assignments and tap the energy of the group.

  • what are our “Action Items” moving forward?
  • Who is the best person to focus on each particular “Action Item”?
  • How do we make this happen?
  • What’s our deadline? (This is essential in order to avoid a myopic approach to task assignments)
  • Next Steps?
