Business team building requires managing relationships within the business team and should not be difficult. After all, this is a matter of human relationships. How tough can that be? Using 35 years of knowledge and experience certainly helps to improve business team building over time.
As a business owner, no matter what type of business you may own, you have to build a business team where you can work together towards a common vision. You need a team that is committed and motivated. A team that can take on the tasks to accomplish the vision.
Building a successful business team is about more than finding people with professional skills, talents, and capabilities. The team can help you lay the groundwork for a highly productive team that can communicate, cooperate and innovate in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.
Building a team means developing human-to-human relationships. This takes time. It takes patience. The process of building the team and the relationships need to be based on sincerity.
Build a plan before you build a team: You need a clear and measurable goal for what you want to accomplish.
Respect goes a long way: Everyone wants to be respected and bring their best ideas to be part of the team.
The team is the priority: A team is stronger when everybody delivers results together based on their individual activities.
Communication is important: Communicating amongst the team is best achieved with positive reinforcement, while respectfully bringing problems to everyone’s attention.

We’re a marketing agency out of the Detroit Metro area. The company has been around for 35 years. It’s been a long ride. We were in traditional media originally. Then I started the internet group in 1994.
To make a long story short, during the 1990s, we had a lot of fun. It was the wild, wild west of the internet. We had three different groups.
We had our website development and website marketing. There was no web marketing, it was just website marketing.
At the same time, we had our ISP team and we had a traditional media team. Each of our three teams operated under a different brand name under the primary corporate umbrella.
