Why Are Your People Thinking of Leaving? How to Build an Effective Team
Successful teams do not come together by chance. They take time to build, nurture and develop - but the rewards are worth it.

As a manager, you need to get your people to trust one another, and focus their talents on achieving the team's goals. You can learn strategies and ideas for building effective teams with our articles, Team Building Activities: an Introduction and Team Charters.

Also, you can identify any teamworking problems, and discover tools for tackling them, with our Team Effectiveness Assessment.
