When spending most of your life becoming an expert at a technical subject, you may not have been able to devote the same attention to learning how to handle the emotional consequences of hectic teamwork. Fortunately, that can be resolved. If the team understands the importance of working on internal relations, and everyone is willing to spend time developing them, you can gain large positive results in a relatively short time.
Collaboration creates trust
High productivity is achieved by having a clear strategy and a trustful collaboration. It requires interpersonal skills and effective team collaboration. When collaboration works, innovation, performance and job satisfaction increase. Trust is generated from within the organization and flows throughout all the way to the customer and back—in an upward spiral.

Of course, at the start of a project, it’ll take some time developing your team’s relations. See it as an indication that you are doing the right thing, making sure the people are talking about the important stuff. There are many things to be negotiated at first, and the right time for a team to push ahead is when the objective is clear to everyone and there is openness and trust among its members. Creating a solid structure at the start means spending time on the right things and aligning each other better in the ongoing development of the team.
