What management often forgets, is that both sides of a company need to give and take.  The leader and the employee need to work together to achieve great results.  Because engaged employees lead to high team performance, a positive company culture is necessary.

Ways to create a high performing team:

Build a diverse team.  Employees from different backgrounds and from diverse cultures provide different points of view, which can greatly benefit a company.

The team comes first.  Instead of putting customers first, make the team the priority.  The company team needs to be well put together in order to please customers.

Provide clear communication.  Team members may miss important tasks or become frustrated if communication is unclear.  Make sure they know what is expected of them.

Create an enjoyable environment.  Work doesn’t have to include boring meetings. Encourage employees to be themselves and to have some fun.

Don’t create a culture of scared team members, worried about breaking rules and never being allowed to think for themselves.  Companies need creativity, innovation, trust, and motivation.  A happy, healthy company culture is what all leaders should be striving for.
