Since the quality of the team is such an important factor in startup success, startup leaders should consciously make efforts to develop their team. Individual qualities like skills and experience generally develop slowly, but grouplevel qualities and particularly team dynamics can be considerably improved in a relatively short time span, and this improvement may be extremely vital for the long-term success of each team and the company as a whole. A study showed
that team dynamics were assessed as best among teams who consciously worked on their collaboration and personal development. As efforts to improve team dynamics do not take vast amounts of time or resources, they should be a fundamental part of the company culture, continuously followed up by leaders.
The two factors that positively impacted team dynamics the most were regular team meetings and individual check-up conversations with superiors - a clear signal that team dynamics don't have to be the Goliath of challenges when building a startup. The study also found that members of best teams often give each other positive comments, ask questions rather than focus on their own viewpoint and pay close attention to others' opinions. Focusing on these behaviors can thus improve team dynamics significantly.
