What is a work team?

A work team is a group of people working together to achieve a common goal. These are formal or informal, and can be found in a variety of settings, including businesses, non-profit organizations, educational institutions and community groups.

Each of the members has indispensable skills, so there is a perfect balance here, as the differences complement each other's responsibilities.

The group fosters creativity and innovation, which can lead to more effective solutions and greater success in achieving objectives. On the other hand, it is guided by a leader with the ability to pool knowledge to pursue promising results.

8 recommendations for selecting your work team

Selecting the right team is critical to the success of any project. Below are some recommendations:

  1. Define your needs. Before selecting team members, it is important to define your needs and project objectives towards a concrete path. This will help you identify the skills as well as competencies needed in the team.

  2. Seek diversity in skills and competencies. The work group should be diverse in terms of skills, experience, perspectives and personalities. The idea is that there should be a hegemony where each member complements the other. Remember that differences are essential when it comes to finding balance.

  3. Meet with referrals or former co-workers. Ask for recommendations and referrals from colleagues or contacts in your network to identify potential candidates. You also have the option of posting job ads online and on social networks, for example, Linkedin.

  4. Evaluate technical and personal skills. Analyze candidates' technical skills to ensure they are qualified to perform the job. In addition, consider their personal skills such as the ability to work in a team, effective communication and problem-solving skills.

  5. Conduct interviews. Ask specific questions about experience or background, skills, and aptitudes, including what they expect on the job. It is also important to assess personality and compatibility with the team.

  6. Check references and portfolio. Check candidates' references and analyze their previous work portfolio to evaluate the quality of work as well as experience in similar projects. Confirm if the information is correct, an alternative is to call personal and work references.

  7. Encourage collaboration. Ensure that the team has a culture of collaboration and that members are willing to work together to achieve project goals.

  8. Set clear expectations. If you are the leader of the group, it is important that from the beginning you let them know the final goal, the idea is that everyone works in one direction. That's not all, the goals must be feasible, real and, above all, oriented to finish in a reasonable time.
