So how to build a team. • Involve everyone in creating an agreed set of team values. These describe expected standards of behaviour while working together and provide a positive common language for challenging each other if people deviate from this. • Ensure everyone understands the business expectations of the team and how each of them contributes towards the achievement of these priorities. • Encourage everyone to get to know each other and not just from a business perspective. Building trust and confidence in each other quickly is the only way to ensure the team is built on a solid foundation.
