Examples of team habits could include:
a) Making sure everyone is wrapped up at the end of the week wtih key projects by doing a Friday morning check-in/status update and pitching in where needed
b) Scheduling in a year end retreat to support team development and team planning
c) Being ready to start work with computers on, coffee in hand at 830 (and not in the coffee room until 9)
d) Making a point of job shadowing for half a day each quarter with a different team member.
As with these examples, most, except c work in favor for the team. What happens over time is that teams can slip into habits that really do'nt benefit the entire team or its' performance.
One activity you might want to undertake as a team is to identify the top 10 habits you as a team have developed. Think about those things you consistently do. Which ones help? Which ones hinder?
Have a great Thursday,
