<-- Back to Building a Winning Finance Team Series
Well-integrated, high-performing finance teams–those that “click”–never lose sight of their goals and are largely self-sustaining. In fact, they seem to take on a life of their own. And it all comes down to selection and leadership.
Teams that 'click' always have a leader who hand selected them and creates the environment and establishes the operating principles and values that are conducive to high performance always perform the best. The evidence for this is clearly seen in organizations where a manager who creates high performance finance moves to another part of the organization, or a different organization, and within 18 months they once again establish a high-performing team. Follow the steps for your roadmap to create similarly high-performing teams.
STEP 1: Choosing your high-performing finance team
STEP 2: Developing your high-performing finance team
* Define and communicate – roles, responsibilities & goals
Focusing on Strengths:
* Developing Team members
* How Strong Team Members React to a Weak Link
STEP 3: Maintaining your high-performing finance team
Sharing Success – celebrating success
* Creating Fun:
* Do something physical or charitable on occasion:
Bottom Line – higher retention, more caring, more efficient, more cohesive, client-focused, higher realization, value-add work.
