What is Team Culture and Why is it Important?

Team culture is a shared approach to work based on beliefs, values, and attitudes. In a nutshell, the culture is simply “how and why we do things at work”.  It highlights what’s most important to a company and impacts every part of a business.  Team culture can make or break a company. A healthy team culture fosters collaboration and motivates employees, but a bad or toxic team culture leads to high turnover and other problems.

5 Signs of a Toxic Team Culture:

  • Never-Ending Gossip and Drama
  • Poor Team Attitudes
  • Lack of Proper Work Ethic
  • Ineffective Communication Among the Team
  • High Employee Turnover

If you identify with one or more of the above signs, you may have a toxic team culture. This type of environment can lead to power struggles, lack of trust, and may hinder team member’s ability to get things done.

The great news is that we can help. Our programs are designed to help teams manage conflict without communication breakdowns or misunderstandings. Participants will feel a renewed sense of engagement, trust and value. The result will be a collaborative team that communicates well and eliminates unhealthy conflict.

Here are just a few benefits of cultivating a healthy, inclusive team culture at work:

  • Effective Communication: Team members that communicate well are 92% more successful than those that lack effective communication skills.
  • Engaged Team Members: Employees invested in the company and the work get better results and are often more productive and efficient. Engaged team members are motivated and enjoy the workplace environment.
  • Reduce Turnover: Engaged employees are less likely to search for a new job, reducing recruiting and hiring costs.
  • Improved Collaboration: An effective team culture provides connections and outlets for employees to work together to solve problems.
  • Increased Productivity: Employees who care about the company, its culture, and its purpose are often more productive, allowing you to conduct more business without hiring more people.
  • Opportunities for Innovation: Productive, collaborative employees come up with new ideas and often make them happen. This kind of innovation helps push your team and your business forward.
