How To Identify Key Roles In A Successful Team

How To Identify Key Roles In A Successful Team

1. LEADER: makes sure team has clear objectives and members are engaged

Leaders have good awareness about what skills their group needs to develop, they are good at planning and prioritising tasks needed to complete work. They are organised and focus on time management, and can set realistic targets. They have a good sense of when a problem is ‘solved’, and pay attention to detail in checking and finalising work.

2. CHALLENGER: questions effectiveness and drives for results 

Challengers can look at problems and see more than one solution. They are able to explain ideas and counter-ideas clearly to people, and are always thinking about how to do things better.

3. DOER: encourages progress and takes on practical jobs 

Doer’s deal well with distractions are are focused workers. They know where to go to find information and are proactive about doing so. They are task oriented and ask for advice or input when they are stuck on a problem. 

 4. THINKER: produces ideas and thinks through those proposed by others 

Thinkers are good at selecting the information they need to solve problems or complete tasks. They are logical and can break down tasks into steps and put information in order. When solutions to problems don’t work they try to find out why and approach the problem from another direction.

5. SUPPORTER: eases tension and promotes harmony 

Supporters work well with other people and listen to their suggestions. They like to check that they have understood problems, and suggest different ways of solving them in a team. They stay calm when there is disagreement or conflict. They can follow instructions to get tasks done and see how these contribute to overall team goals. 

Keep your eyes open and be attentive to what is going on.

Good Luck!
