"Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare."
Patrick Lencioni, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
Getting the people who work for you, your team, to work together to reach common goals may seem easy; but according to the experts it's not. This section of the HRM web site provides supervisors with a set of tools to improve their team's communication and focus, to introduce change, and to measure progress toward goals. Non-supervisory employees will find helpful information about being a more effective member of a team.
We've organized this section around three themes:
- Improving communications about performance,
- Suggestions to make annual performance appraisals more effective, and
- Guidelines for developing performance improvement plans that work.
The Employee Relations staff is available to help you increase UTD's competitive advantage by helping you improve your teamwork.
