Through my research I found that Google undertook Project Aristotle which was based on the famous philosopher who famously said: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Its goal for the research was to figure out what makes a team effective at Google. The researchers found 5 ingredients that made for an effective team.

Make sure to use what you've learnt here and apply it to your team. For a more in depth explanation of each of these points check out the video


 


1. Psychological safety


In a team, members must feel safe to admit mistakes and ask questions. If they dont feel comfortable and think they will be embarrassed, the team will not thrive in the future.



2. Dependability 


Members must be able to depend on one another, they must keep their word and be able to rely on each other for work on time. If teams cant trust one another with work, it will lead to a deteriorating team dynamic.



3. Structure and clarity 


Team members must clearly understand the expectations of their role, the goals they need to achieve and what they need to do to make it happen. Dont make their role a guessing game, there needs to be a clear structure.  



4. Meaning  


Each employee must feel that their role has a purpose and meaning in the organisation, theres nothing more frustrating for them than feeling like another cog in a wheel. Team members need to be able to find a sense of purpose in their work or the results theyre achieving.



5. Impact  


Finally, teams must feel that their work is making a difference. There needs to be transparency in an organisation as to how their work contributes to the overall goals in the company.
