People are different. They have different opinions and view on things. It is human nature. Having those people in one group working towards a common goal can prove difficult. They may agree on the vision and goals set before them but rarely will they agree on how to achieve said goal. The person sitting at the helm must have leading high performance teams tactics up his or her sleeve.

Often the leader is one with the highest level of education and experience. They know almost all there is to know about the work. One must therefore constantly remind themselves not to hog the stage. To allow input from the other members of the team. To be a coach and not the guru. That said, one must try to be a role model for the group members by having a good track record and proper credentials.

People who are self-motivated are more productive than those who lack excitement for their work. Everyone wants to feel important. As the leader, one should ensure every member knows his or her worth. Inspire energy and enthusiasm for the job. If this is done right, there will be no need to push for development of ideas and meeting deadlines.

A group of people where everyone is being honest about their true self will not always be in complete agreement about things. The key to keeping disagreements from turning sour and remaining constructive is to ban personal attacks. To be hard on the problem but respectful of the person. Ensure the members trust each other and value each opinion regardless of who has it.

Large groups can be very difficult to handle. Here are just too many minds and opinions to consider. Keep the group small. Do not make the experts a part of this but only keep them on a consultative basis. Make the group as diverse as possible to ensure a full dimensional approach to problems.

The first meeting should be dedicated to developing a roadmap for operation. What are the ground rules? What are the responsibilities of the members? What will be expected of each of them including the leader? What is the goal and mission of your team? These should be defined in detail. The charter should be developed by the team as a whole with full participation from everyone.

Long meetings are boring for everyone. Bored minds are not productive minds. Short minds can also be useless if the head does not possess the skills to properly run a meeting. One must ensure participation of every member at each meeting. The head should encourage an equal exchange of ideas. Create a safe environment to get as creative and wild as one wishes.

Celebrating achievements is a great way to motivate the members. How about share disappointments and embarrassments? A little vulnerability goes a long way. Allow the group to help each other overcome weaknesses. A group is only as strong as the members are. The purpose of a leader is to build strong members who join to become an even stronger group.
