Team-capable - definition

Overview

In at least every second job ad is the word that no one understands correctly. "You are able to work in a team" or "team skills are required". Formulation variants such as "you act team- and service-oriented" or "cooperative behavior" are included here.

If we ask customers, if they are able to work in a team, almost everybody writes it. Even though some colleagues do not like to hear the term and groan at the word "team". They have often had bad experience with teamwork. Typical nerve factors are ineffective meetings and meetings where nothing comes out - or just a lazy compromise. If they were not, then (almost) everything would be fine - that's how many see it.

Customer view on team ability

Overview

If we ask customers what they understand by teamwork, we get very different answers.

1. Working harmoniously with others?

Overview

Some interpret it as an ability to work harmoniously with others. Signs of good teamwork are for them the lunch together and a feeling of belonging together. Team-able, who respects harmony and communicates well.

Team development is above all "working together". Subordinating one's own ego seems to be the main task in such a context. In the job everyone has their own tasks.

2. Interdisciplinary cooperation

Overview

The others see teamwork as competence for interdisciplinary cooperation, in which everyone gives their share to the whole. This is about the "I", the individual, as well as the we, all together.

Basically like the football game that you can only win if everyone participates. In which there is a kind of collective consciousness and self-confidence and a common goal - the victory.

How does teamwork look like?

Overview

Traditional work is often shaped by the first image of teamwork.

Such teamwork often takes place in Grossraumburos, where they are used, for example, in the field of sales, in which each has its customers, but supports the others with problems and questions.

Teamwork in New Work

Overview

New work in the digital age, on the other hand, is often determined by a collaboration of the second kind. This type of cooperation is complex because it is necessary to create a balance.

That this balance between me and we is possible, even if there are individual stars in a team, can be observed well at Bayern Munich. That even good single players are of little use, if the "we" does not work, currently shows the HSV.

Leadership in the team

Overview

Big performance differences can also be observed in corporate teams. There are teams that play well together - and others, because the possibilities of the individual just do not sum up ...

By the way: Harald Smolak has in his contribution how complex the topic leadership is in the team Leadership in the team is difficult: 5 tips for better management and also gives 5 tips on how to do it better.

6 relevant team competences

Overview

We have identified six relevant team competencies, which together define the degree of teamwork: willingness to cooperate, attitude, communication, self-knowledge, reflexion and structural capacity.

All are relevant, and only if they all play together, is there a form of teamwork, which also allows for a joint performance and a succession of players.

  1. Cooperation: Cooperative willingness is therefore important, because each individual must be willing to cooperate with the others. This sounds simple, but in practice it is often quite hard. If team members have the experience that not the sharing of knowledge, but the restraint is rewarded, this undermines willingness to cooperate. A kind of pseudo-cooperation emerges, at the end of which everyone is careful not to release too much knowledge.
  2. Attitude: The attitude is the basic requirement: Who does not believe in common goals and does not see the team as an opportunity for their own development, does not have the right attitude for teamwork. This may be related to the previous team experiences were disappointing. Or that Company and team leaders were unable to set common goals.
  3. Communication: Communication is the easiest way to learn. To give feedback is, for example, an art that not everyone has mastered. The point is not only to praise or to criticize, but both. And there is the simple rule: No feedback is the worst at all - and at the same time the most common.
  4. Self-knowledge: Without self-knowledge no recognition of others. Only those who know their own strengths and limits, can really appreciate the others. If, for example, you are afraid to make mistakes because of a bad self-image, you will be so concentrated that you can barely see them. Self-knowledge means having a realistic assessment, neither too low nor too high. This point is the most personal of all. The team can help develop self-knowledge, as it always offers a comparison, a kind of bar.
  5. Reflectivity: Reflectiveness is closely linked to this. This not only involves thinking about oneself, but also about the relationships between one another and the processes in the team. How did something go? How do we work together? What is good - and where is it?
  6. Structural Ability: Structural capability is often underestimated. It is the ability to pursue goals, to focus on the crucial point, to make plans and to distinguish the important from the unimportant. The effects of lack of structural ability in typical office life are omnipresent: just think of unequal workload or the famous "social" loafing. "TEAM = great another's doing it" has a lot to do with how much everyone cares about their own goals.

    The article describes very nicely the experiences, which one as also Personaler in presentations discussions makes. If you ask applicants whether you are team-capable, the ant: YES. If you ask more, then often comes little as an answer. Sometimes even a red head with the candidate. The abovementioned competences describe the term very well.

    • Simone Janson

      I can imagine this well - that is then again the problem of job advertisements, which expect any good-sounding phrases - and the candidates then try to judge, come what may.

    In the team, it is particularly important to find the abovementioned competences among the team members
    since the success of each individual member of the team and, consequently, the competences of the members contribute to the overall success in the team. In this case, every member of the team must be given coaching and assistance in particular for the underdeveloped competencies.

    Honestly, if one completes all 6 criteria evenly, one is the perfect person - at least in a performance, which - fortunately, I find - hardly has anything to do with reality. Even the point 4 takes under normal conditions for a lifetime ....

    • Simone Janson

      Of course, such an article can only reflect the ideal conditions. But they address how difficult teamwork is in reality.

      • Karsten Strauss

        Ideal plattitutes I find neither helpful nor really can they explain "relevant team competences". (Is perhaps a bit drastic, but brief and comprehensible, right?). Team work, by the way, is not so difficult when I have defined and communicated before, what I mean by a team ...

  13. Siegfried Baumeister

    "In addition to the individual ability of the team, in my opinion, the team opportunity must also be considered. In other words: do the respective structures and processes promote teamwork or do they even prevent them? Unfortunately, in addition to attitude and behavior issues, the system question is often forgotten, and so many fight under team-hostile conditions with their behavior ... "

    • Simone Janson

      Hello Mr. Baumeister, thank you for the important reference, since you are right, it also always depends on the circumstances. Just recently, I read that teambuilding does nothing, for example, because colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere can understand, for example, but can not work together.
