This section is about how managers build great teamwork and how to run effective team meetings.
Creating teamwork requires managers to build a work environment that encourages a good flow of information and advice in all directions top down, bottom up, across the team and the organisation. This does not happen by accident, it only happens through design, setting expectations, holding team members accountable to work together and through effective managerial leadership. For a team to work effectively it is not sufficient for managers to remind his/her direct reports that 'they are a team' or 'just work as a team'. There must be a shared understanding of why the team exists and what they are expected to do or deliver.
