Chart: Impact on feelings about the workplace whenI feel part of a team

They think it’s all over…

But actually, building a strong team is often just the start

Whether we have loved the Euro’s or loathed them, there a lesson I am going to keep from it all.

Like so many, I have been inspired by what Wales have achieved – their solid team performance will have a lasting impression on both its football and country.

Wales’ slogan “Together. Stronger” was simple and brilliant reflecting and inspiring a mentality that psychologically connected the team, the fans and a nation. A connection that made the Wales team stronger and more successful.

Wales: Endless will and determination

The motto is motivating and calls on the players (the work team) to represent their country (their business) with pride and aspire to be the best they can be, not just as individuals, but more importantly, together as a team.

Imagine a world where our teams worked with the same desire, connection and determination for our organisations. What could be achieved?

This positivity isn’t just confined to football. Surveylab’s UK Workplace Study provides important insight into how employees feel about their workplace when they feel part of a team. Staff feel greater pride, a greater sense of belonging, are more collaborative, contribute more, are further committed and have the added desire to remain part of the organisation.

Imagine the significant impact this could have on your team and organisational performance?

“Gorau Chwarae Cyd Chwarae” can be found on the Wales team badge and translates into “Team Play is the Best Play”. Building an effective team requires a number of building blocks in place (a future blog I feel). What is clear is strong work teams play as a team, and being part of a team provides individuals with a greater chance of achieving our best for ourselves, our team and our organisation.
