If you are a student, I think in your whole student life you ever worked under a team. It could be debating team, playing team, money collection team, business competition team, university team and others team built for different purpose in school, college and university. When we hear the word ‘team’ the thought flow over our head is individual come together make a group and work for a specific purpose. And the term “team management” implies that the power or ability of an individual or an organization to administer, compel and coordinate a group of individuals to perform a task.
Basically team management involves teamwork’s, communication, identify problems, solve problems, set objectives and do performance appraisal within a team. In every team there is a manager or leader who leads the team and force the team member to accomplish a specific goal. The team manager tries her/his level best to increase personnel productivity and build an effective team.
There is numerous importance of team management in an organization because an effective team helps organization to achieve its desired goals within time frame along with create sustainability of the organization. The frame of organization is gigantic so an individual with only his one brain can’t be able to go long but when it comes to team different employees thought incorporated and able to find a quick solution and also when it comes to accomplish objectives employees incorporated thought toward same objectives gives a better output. Managing a team means creating a positive workplace and a positive workplace actually increase employee engagement where everyone knows each other, do complement of each other and did their job according to their qualification and interest and all these result in increasing productivity and helps to achieve organization goals.
Now I am going to discuss some specific benefits organizations take from the team management:
When each employee knows their responsibility and work according to their qualification and interest able to give better focus to their task and passionately try to do their task along with within a team every team member cooperate with each other and if anyone fell behind everyone try to get him out. Thus increases productivity of employees.
In an organization everyone encounters different matter every day and get the opportunity to learn and explore different perspectives. For instance, from experienced worker’s new employees gain knowledge in a long run. Moreover, when different employees with distinct talents cooperate with each other also they get to exchange knowledge. In a team, team members discuss new ideas over old one and exchange their knowledge and through this employee empowered with knowledge.
Create employee satisfaction:
When people work under a team gradually they become like a family and an invisible bond exist between them. In a team they come together, relay on each other, cooperate each other and thus make a bond. This bond make employee happy, they don’t feel bored and consequently able to create a friendly environment where employees feel satisfied.
Organization actually works to meet targets on time, teamwork helps to achieve the goal seamlessly. Without teamwork, individual alone can’t make decision easily and it is difficult to carry out task all alone. Individuals who work in a team have high performance levels. Therefore, when each employee put their best, as does the whole organization. As a result, organizations attempt to reach the goal fulfilled.
In spite of having tremendous benefits of team management won’t work if managers failed to manage the team effectively. To manage a team effectively managers, need of some skills.
Here I will try to highlight some basic skills a manager should process:
- Need clear, effective communication skill
- Need emotional intelligence (who can encourage, motivates and influence others)
- Needs ability to delegate (dividing task according to employee’s specialization)
- Need to be open toward employees
- Need problem solving skills
- Decision making skills
To sum up, in an organization team management plays an important role to achieve its goal, objectives and mission. By building team organizations able get competitive advantage in terms of productivity, creativity, innovation and employee satisfaction.
