Team Building Strategy

Evaluating and Building Your Team During Days 31 to 60


After a month of observation and assessment, the next 30 days in a leadership role provide a prime opportunity to enhance your team strategically. This blog delves into the critical phase of evaluating and building your team, ensuring each member is ideally positioned to contribute to your overarching vision. By doing so, you set the stage for both immediate improvements and long-term success.

European business leaders often exemplify this approach. For instance, Sofia, a Chief Operating Officer in Sweden, used this period to conduct a comprehensive skills audit that led to several strategic role realignments, significantly improving operational efficiency and team morale.

Team Assessment the Strategy for Team Building

Utilising the insights gained during the first month, this period focuses on evaluating each team member’s performance and alignment with expected outcomes. It’s essential to use this time to make informed adjustments that reflect both your initial observations and broader organisational needs.

Example: Michael, a new IT director, conducted one-on-one interviews to assess his team members' competencies and aspirations. Armed with this knowledge, he realigned team roles to better match individual strengths with departmental goals, resulting in a noticeable boost in productivity and morale.


Building and Adjusting Your Team

  • Role Adjustments: Reconfigure roles to capitalise on individual strengths and address weaknesses. This strategic realignment considers future growth and evolving needs, ensuring your team remains robust and adaptable.

  • Development Focus: Identify key areas for development and initiate targeted training or mentoring programs. By investing in your team’s growth, you not only enhance their capabilities but also promote a culture of continuous improvement and engagement.

  • Team Building Strategy:  Implement a strategy that enhances team cohesion and synergy. Focus on building a team structure that supports collaborative success and innovation, ensuring that every member feels integral to achieving the team’s goals.

The period between days 31 and 60 is crucial for making strategic adjustments that can significantly enhance your effectiveness as a leader and your team's performance. By aligning team capabilities with organisational objectives, you foster a dynamic and responsive work environment. I look forward to our next post, which will explore how to align your team with organisational goals.
