The success of building a creative team needs more than typical industry knowledge or associative technical proficiency. One needs a group of people who can come together with their skills in a much more positive, productive way, navigating through the disagreements and arguments to come up with never before solutions. This kind of team depends on soft skills, both individually and collectively. Below are some points on how to get that team.
Convey and Connect
It is important to communicate, without holding anything back. Communication lays the groundwork for a creative team. If there is a blockage in communicating simple messages, how is a team supposed to communicate complex ideas between each other? Companies need to come up with more opportunities for more informal direct interaction scenarios. Disconnects between coworkers can be broken with environments where face to face communication takes place.
Figuring out and Fixing
Easier said than done, problem-solving is one of the parts of the x-factor which makes a team into “the team”. Problem-solving is becoming more and more a team sport rather than an individual sport. A problem-solving process can be furthermore divided to individuals such as Identifying the problem, Researching and analyzing, Creative thinking, Refining the solution, and Implementing the solution.
And finally, the most important soft skill of them of all –
Learning from Criticism
To move forward, one has to push oneself. Nothing pushes someone like criticism, learning from criticism is the best in job training someone will ever get. It is even more important to adapt to a more open professional who is ready to change according to situations and projects.
