What’s the secret to great teams?

This is interesting new research from the CIPD, which reviews lots of studies into high performing teams and identifies the group-level factors influencing team effectiveness.

Two aspects stand out as being especially important:

=> Psychological safety

=> “Cognitive Consensus” (how team members define and think about issues)

Some of the report’s conclusions:

=> Diverse teams can be high-performing teams

=> Different personalities can be team players

=> Team dynamics are vital for performance, such as:

– Trust between team members

– Psychological safety

– Team cohesion

=> Team dynamics are especially important for virtual work

=> Organising team knowledge improves performance

=> Well-planned interventions can increase team effectiveness.
