The foundation of all team building is having shared goals to which all team members are committed. Team building is only productive if it establishes or builds on those goals. Teams are formed for many reasons including: process improvements, strategic planning, project planning and implementation, problem solving, and performance improvement.

In many ways, the team leader acts as a facilitator, a neutral party, or a process expert who uses methods and tools to bring the team to their established outcomes. A team leader has very defined set of roles and responsibilities.

This BrainMass book covers the initial team building process, competencies for effective team leaders, information on traits of high performing teams, effective meeting management, strategies for dealing with group problems, and best practices for high-performing teams.
