We use team play to promote team engagement. We can encourage members to practice new attitudes and behaviors that get every member of the team highly engaged to meet team goals.
The fastest way to build high performing teams is to aim for engagement. Leaders must create the right conditions for all the members of the team to give their best each day, commit themselves to mission of the team, and find ways so they can contribute to organizational success.
Engagement happens when members are fully aware of the mission of the team, when members trust and respect each other, and when the organization values performance, productivity, and well-being of all team members.
