Board with Teamwork WordsIf you’re managing a team that’s growing quickly, you have your work cut out for you! Integrating new hires, creating a culture of inclusivity, adapting to constant change…these are just some of the challenges you might be facing.

Challenges Fast-Growing Teams Face
As they scale, fast-growing teams face a host of challenges. Typically, the faster a team grows, the deeper and more widespread the challenges might be.

Oftentimes, the fast growth of teams can lead to stumbles with:

  • bringing new team members up to speed quickly
  • implementing onboarding and training
  • delivering results
  • making decisions
  • maintaining effective communication
  • retaining a unified direction
  • managing workload distribution
  • preserving quality and standards
  • allocating resources
  • prioritizing tasks and projects
  • adapting to change
  • preserving company culture

Team Building With StrengthsFinder®
Fortunately, StrengthsFinder®, the popular personality test, can help you build a happy, cohesive, productive team.

StrengthsFinder®, now known as CliftonStrengths®, identifies people’s top 5 strengths (out of a list of 34 potential strengths). When team members know their own strengths, as well as those of their colleagues, they can communicate, cooperate, and collaborate more effectively.

The StrengthsFinder® assessment is a particularly beneficial team building strategy for fast-growing teams, because of its potential to accelerate team cohesion, optimize performance, and enhance adaptability in a rapidly changing environment.

StrengthsFinder® Can Help Accelerate Integration Of New Team Members
As teams expand quickly, one of the primary challenges (especially with remote workers or teams) is integrating new members in a way that’s both efficient and effective. The StrengthsFinder® test helps by providing a common language and framework for understanding individual talents and strengths from the outset. New team members can identify and communicate their natural strengths to the team, which can help them feel more value and understood from the start. Using StrengthsFinder® also allows team leaders to align new members with roles and tasks that play to their strengths, which can help ease them into the team.

StrengthsFinder® Can Help Identify Strategic Roles And Improve Task Allocation
For fast-growing teams, it’s essential to quickly identify where people’s talents can best be put to work to support ongoing growth and objectives. The StrengthsFinder® test provides insights into individuals’ innate talents, enabling managers and leaders to strategically allocate roles and tasks that align with each person’s strengths. Teams that operate in their areas of strength are more agile, more capable of scaling effectively, and better positioned to tackle the challenges of rapid growth.

StrengthsFinder® Can Help Improve Communication And Collaboration
As teams grow, communication and collaboration become increasingly complex. Team building with StrengthsFinder® can help mitigate these challenges by enabling team members to understand their own communication styles and how they interact with others. By appreciating the different ways in which their colleagues might approach tasks and solve problems, the team can develop more effective strategies for working together. This understanding can lead to fewer misunderstandings and conflicts, more efficient meetings, and better project outcomes.

StrengthsFinder® Can Help Enhance Cohesion And Synergy
Rapid team growth can also sometimes lead to a dilution of the team’s core identity and values, making it more difficult to maintain a sense of unity. Understanding the unique contributions of each team member can help build a culture of respect and appreciation and help foster a stronger sense of community. Teams can leverage the diversity of each individual’s strengths to create a synergy that enhances creativity, problem-solving, and productivity.

StrengthsFinder® Can Help Build A Resilient And Adaptive Culture
A strengths-based culture can help make teams more flexible and responsive to change. By focusing on leveraging strengths, teams can more easily adapt to new challenges, reconfigure around new objectives, and embrace change as an opportunity for growth. This resiliency is crucial for maintaining momentum and ensuring long-term success during periods of rapid expansion.
