You can build and manage a high-performing team by avoiding these seven team-building blunders:

1. Failure to build support for the team with the right people at the right levels

2. Failure to establish conditions for team effectiveness

3. Failure to establish a meaningful performance goal.

4. The absence of a decision-making process.

5. Failure to establish appropriate norms.

6. Weak communication channels.

7. Insensitivity to diversity.
