Abstract (Summary)

Team building and continual learning methods have become transdisciplinary, and the effectiveness of these approaches have yet to be fully appreciated across industries. Training, coaching, and team building may alleviate many of the challenges for positioning talent with organizational change. Organizational leaders should provide direction and support with team building by clarifying and prioritizing goals before inducing innovative initiatives (Peralta, Lopes, Gilson, Lourenço, & Pais, 2014). Setting transparent goals and commitment is characteristic of mature groups, which team building may help develop (Peralta et al., 2014). Four goals for team members at the group level are to set goals, assign responsibilities, observe processes, and reflect on social relationships (Burke, 2018). As more organizations embrace the importance and benefits of continual learning, taking the initiative of team building may be the foundation for growing leaders and organizational success. Organizations that provide the leadership and opportunities of team building with the time and effort needed to promote organizational change may reap the benefits of creativity and innovation and prosper with the advantages of a changing global environment.
