Good team dynamics are a fundamental characteristic in determining your success or frailer within an organization. Coherently, Elamant is still in its construction phase. Thus, a good team support system will act as your hard hat. This means the decision of which team to join should not be taken lightly. All things considered, the team you decide to join affects a number of things throughout your Elamant journey.
Below are a few factors you need to take into consideration before signing up. These essential “need to knows” will help you begin your quest for knowledge and understanding.
- Understanding how to make money from shopping receipts. (Read about that here)
- Grasping the concept on which Elamant is based on. (Read about that here)
- Considering how Elamant works in your country. (Read about how it works for me here)
- Understanding the process of getting paid from your receipts. (Read about that here)
Making an informed decision on whether or not Elamant is for you should be your priority. Accepting that not everyone is a shopper, and thus not everyone can get full benefits from joining, will save you from a lot of headaches. You need to analytically determine where you stand.
Having positive camaraderie between you and your sponsor will allow you to feel more comfortable asking questions. The more questions you ask that get answered to your satisfaction, the more likely you are not to have something “drop on your head!” Accordingly, there are a number of documents that are a must for you to go through and agree to before signing up. These are:
- Elamant Member Policies and Procedures.
The company (Elamant) has a number of resources you can take advantage of, but how to get help without contacting Elamant Support is something you should also take note of.
A team can be defined as two or more people working together interdependently to meet a specific goal or purpose. Team dynamics can, therefore, be understood as the behavioral relationships between members of any given team. How a team interacts, communicates, and works together has a dramatic impact on how successful a team is in meeting its goals.
Attributes of a Winning Team:
The difference between a team and a group is that a team has a shared goal. You need to find out if the team you are looking to join shares your objectives. Are they fine with just making money from uploading receipts? Is earning more by growing their teams something they are interested in? Will they help you achieve that goal? Do they have the true values of what the company stands for at heart? Etc.
Trust and Openness
Team members need to feel safe to share information and ideas without fear of ridicule or shame. Trust sets the basis for open dialogue. This is important for you to feel comfortable enough to find out more information. Is the person you are talking to making you feel that way?
Willingness to acknowledge and correct mistakes are also very important. Pride has no place in a strong team. Is the team you are looking to join accepting of being challenged on their ideals? Do they take the time to explain and also hear your views on queries/doubts you may have?
You take note of accountability in a team through honesty, transparency, and openness. Has the person who approached you exhibited these qualities? Investing in a new venture is always a risky business. You need someone who will be responsible for you. Someone who will basically hold your hand through the process. Does the person you are talking to seem capable of that? Would you be comfortable being answerable to them?
There is nothing worse than a micro-manager. Not only do they suppress creativity, but they often undermine a down-line’s sense of ownership, confidence, and sense of trust. Participative leaders step back and give members the space to work autonomously. Instead of controlling their group’s every move, they provide resources, guidance, and information. Are you feeling stifled already before you even join the team? Or do you feel like you are being given enough freedom and room to explore and find out things for yourself as well? Is there constant nagging for you to join and do you feel like you’re being pushed into it?
Each team member should understand their value and responsibility within the team. Two heads are better than one. Members should be confident to rely on each other for information and support without keeping tabs on how much they give or take. Do you feel a sense of belonging there? Can that team be your tribe?
These are a few things you would really have to look into before joining. They will tell you a lot about how that team operates and if they will be the right fit for you.
Granted, most of these qualities are difficult to analyze from the outside looking in. However, now that I have made you aware of what to look for, the process should be a bit more doable. Furthermore, make sure to avoid decisions by peer pressure. Long term commitments should never be rushed.
In my team, we do not convince anyone of anything. We pride ourselves in informing and educating people. The final decision is yours! I hope you make the right decision and join the diverse team that is The Online Nomads. Where innovation and creativity are encouraged, triumph is inevitable!
