Qualities of a Successful Team

Whether you are a recruiter or an employee, teamwork is probably a huge part of your job. The dynamic of your team needs to be strong and spirited in order for everyone’s jobs to go smoothly. At Esquire, we love our team and know that teamwork is important! Teams aren’t always successful, and they can go through ebbs and flows, but continue reading to find out successful qualities of a team!


Communication is important for any team! Share your thoughts, doubts, problems, questions, and whatever else you can think of with your team. Transparent communication is a must for being successful. Lack of or poor communication can sometimes lead to irritation or incorrect/incomplete work! Communicating with your team on even the small things will make a huge difference. Everyone wants to know that they’re on the same page, and they won’t be able to read anyone’s mind, so simply talk and communicate.

Goals and Support

Make goals with your team! Strive to complete the goals together and support each other in the process. Setting goals as a team will help understand what needs to be done and even improve results. Supporting your team members comes without question. No one can be great alone! Everyone needs support here and there or maybe even a push they can’t give themselves. Support your team members through their successes and failures to help build them up. Everyone is able to work easier knowing they have a supportive team behind them- it helps build confidence and security.

Diversity and Work Load

Diversity in a team is imperative. Everyone brings something different to the table! With everyone’s different skill sets, strengths, and weaknesses, your team should be able to figure out a way where everyone is using their strongest skills! Having different age groups, cultures, and personalities on the team can help spark creativity and new ideas. Divvying up the workload evenly is also an important team aspect. You don’t want one team member to feel like they are carrying the team, but you also don’t want someone to feel like they aren’t capable of doing any work. A fair workload for everyone is important- and the workload will vary depending on their specific title or strengths and weaknesses.


A successful team will be able to have fun! They will be able to laugh at their mistakes and brush it off while continuing their jobs. Having fun is crucial because it will make work more bearable and help you love your job. Working in a fun environment will lead to more productivity and better team morale.

If your current team has these qualities, you are set for success! If you don’t, don’t worry, you are not doomed. Arrange to have some team building exercises, happy hours, or team meals together. This will help you build these qualities and be on your way to success!
