Lauren McAdams, a career advisor and hiring manager at ResumeCompanion.com, believes that the best way to build strong intra-team relationships is to instill a sense of teamwork as soon as the new employee walks through the door. We assign new employees to shadow experienced “coaches” so they have multiple “coaches”. Next, I assign mini-teams for new projects. These smaller units often include employees who have never had the chance to work together. This gives new hires the chance to develop relationships and work with others. Finally, leadership rotates so that different people can test their leadership skills. Because project teams are always made up of different people, everyone in the company can get to know each other by working together. This exposure and collaboration led to very strong teamwork in our company.” Role switching

Everyone worked together as a team, and they covered each other’s needs, which allowed everything to move quickly and smoothly. The Big Book of Team Culture
