Effective cross-functional teams must  foster behaviors and communication strategies that build trust vs. bust trust.  Elements to achieve this include: 

  • Articulate the shared goal such that there is passionate engagement by team members
  • Identify barriers to reaching the goal
  • Apply skills that spur creative problem solving
  • Learn skills to address unproductive behaviors to free natural enthusiasm
  • Learn skills to foster new levels of cohesion, trust, and  engagement
  • Celebrate wins
  • Use everything that happens for "learning"
  • Use success to demonatrate a model of a high performance team that others emulate
