To create effective teams, managers need to avoid the following six deadly sins of team building: Lack of a model. A team leader often focuses on a single aspect of team functioning, such as  communication practices. But many other elements are critical to team success and  effectiveness, and a team is only as strong as its weakest component. A single-dimensional  team-building process may cause frustration and destroy the credibility of the process.  Fix: A model of how teams function is needed to address all the factors that result in reduced  team effectiveness. At a minimum, the following must be considered for team effectiveness:  o Clearly stated and commonly held vision and goals o Talent and skills required to meet the goals o Clear understanding of team members' roles and functions o Efficient and shared understanding of procedures and norms
