Cog Wheels with Career WordsIn companies and organizations, teams merge for all sorts of reasons…from expansion to downsizing…horizonal mergers to vertical mergers…interdepartmental to company-wide.

And when teams merge, they can be more or less effective, more or less productive, more or less happy, and more or less cohesive.

Challenges Of Team Mergers
As soon as a team merger is announced, it’s a virtual certainty that not all members on the teams will be happy. Team members might feel afraid, reluctant, resistant, or downright angry about the prospect of joining forces with another team.

The key to a successful team merger is integrating the varied personalities, working styles, and cultures into a new team that can leverage its newfound collective strengths and achieve common goals.

Use StrengthsFinder® To Help Build A Cohesive, Effective Team
A focus on team building becomes essential in helping to ensure the success of a newly-merged team, and StrengthsFinder® can play a crucial role in the initial transition and beyond.

StrengthsFinder®, now known as CliftonStrengths®, is an assessment tool that identifies a person’s top 5 strengths, from a list of 34 strengths. Unlike other personality tests, StrengthsFinder® is easy to understand and easy to talk about, which makes it the ideal tool for team building.

Immediate Impacts Of StrengthsFinder® In Team Building
StrengthsFinder® can have an immediate impact when a new team is formed, helping everyone on the team better understand themselves and each other. Simply put, StrengthsFinder® gets people talking about themselves and sharing information in a way that virtually nothing else can, and it can dramatically speed up the “getting to know you” phase of a team merger.

Long-Term Impacts Of StrengthsFinder® In Team Building
Down the line, the impacts of teambuilding with StrengthsFinder® can be game-changing. Projects and roles can be assigned more strategically, to take advantage of people’s strengths. Team members can ask each other for help and offer assistance. Conflicts can be avoided, because people better understand and appreciate each other. Traits and working styles in others that might have been previously viewed as negative can now be seen as positive.
