“7 Ways To Small Business Team Spirit” 

Small Business Coaching - Looking for Harmony

“So what’s going to be easier for you in your business? To have a team that quarrels. Or, to have a team working in perfect harmony so you can count on them when you need them the most. I think you know the answer already.

Most people want a Swiss clock when you talk of teams. But I’m really interested in what you think.

As a profitability coach in Houston, I help evaluate employee profiles. And then help them see others through a new lens. This boosts team performance. Is this on your mind today?

Let’s look at 7 ways to build team spirit in your business.


1) Evaluate employee profiles

Most small businesses say employees are their most important asset. Most small businesses already know they need to motivate them to keep them productive. And everybody agrees it starts with better communication.

If you use Myer-Briggs or DISC or Winslow, you can evaluate personality profiles. You can then see how employees behave under different conditions. It also helps people understand others. Using their profile, they can adjust their talking style to match someone else’s style. 

This brings harmony. Harmony in the workplace brings productivity. And as you may already know, productivity brings results.

2) Announce a team-building workshop

You know that people act differently when they’re outside the company. They tear down their masks. They turn friendlier. 

Once you announce a team-building workshop, it shows you invest in people. It will give you a chance for getting people to understand each other. And they could do it in an informal setting. 

That can bring down walls, which usually blocks progress.

3) Show the adapted styles

Using one of the profiling methods, you could show people how they can change their language. And work better with others. 

People will learn to adapt. You know that one could use the adapted style to match other styles. If they learn to do it temporarily, it forms a bridge with people they previously couldn’t work with. 

Once communication ends, they will return to their personal style. Repeating this method really works. People advance. Business results improve.

4) Practice role-play

Build color codes for various personalities. It will give you a chance to conduct role-play. For example, you could have a “red” personality talk to a “blue” personality using the language that matches them. 

And you will see how fluency improves. People begin to discover why it’s important to change their style.

5) Build new lexicon

Every style will have its own language. Building a conversation library for each person will give you a chance to use it in a different setting. That’s exactly what we do. Crafting this language in the workshop will help you bring lasting change in your business.

6) Reward the event organizers

Once the workshop ends, reward those who played a role in organizing the event. Recognize them. After all, they worked hard to make it happen, didn’t they? 

Give out gifts and certificates so you honor them for their work. You know that such recognition will build continuity for future work. 

7) Set dates for re-evaluation

Follow up with new dates for doing it over. It will help you measure progress. When people gather once more, they will prepare better. And such rituals will build a sustainable culture for your business.

These 7 steps will help you build your small business team spirit.
