How to grow within a company and maintain the team spirit?
Each of the employees of a company has its own objectives professionals, depending on their position in the organization. That doesn’t necessarily mean giving up your spirit and teamwork for your own best interests. On the contrary, team spirit is a key factor in business productivity and stimulates individual growth among its human capital.
The secret is to handle personal and group expectations with intelligence and balance. Encourage the career development of the members of the organization as a contribution to common success. As expressed by the concept of business synergy: the success of group work and team spirit is superior to that of each individual effort.
The nature of our work at Hypernova Labs is focused on work teams, cohesive and committed to their work. That is why team spirit is one of our most important values and we seek at all times to encourage individual growth to strengthen team spirit and the success of the organization.
Strategies to grow professionally at the individual level
Every work team draws on the strengths of each of its members. This is how individual growth becomes a necessity for the future triumph of the team.
Individual growth is supported by the following actions:
Knowledge of one’s own strengths and weaknesses
The individual review of our strengths and weaknesses allows us a greater personal knowledge and is the basis for taking action. Weaknesses become an area for improvement while strengths are the basis for defining the added value that we can contribute to the organization.
Definition of goals and objective
Having a clear vision of where we want to go and the specific actions to take along that path is an excellent guide to chart our path of professional growth. It allows us to evaluate our own performance and make any necessary adjustments.
- Be proactive
It is important not to settle for just carrying out assigned tasks. Team spirit and the desire to learn more every day are nurtured every time we take a step further in our daily work. Looking around at the possible areas for improvement, proposing ideas, demonstrating our creativity is also a way to grow professionally.
- Constantly improve communication
An isolated employee does not grow professionally or nurture the organization. That is why it is so important that communication is a skill that is developed on a daily basis. This allows us to stay in tune with the objectives of the company, its structure and, most importantly, its needs.
It is essential to review the language and learn to use the correct words.
- Always keep continuous learning in mind
Professional growth comes hand in hand with continuous learning. Try to keep up to date in professional training and, in the same way, open up to experiential learning in the organization. Sharing with other professionals in the area or any other and learning from them is one of the most enriching forms of organizational learning.
What are the keys to fostering team spirit?
As expressed by the concept of business synergy: the success of group work is superior to that of each individual effort. It is for this reason that team spirit and individual growth are closely related.
The keys to fostering team spirit are:
A good leader is able to:
Motivate each of your team members
Get the best out of each person in your charge
Create a conducive work environment
Achieve identification with each of the organization’s objectives
Trust among its members
Reach a level of trust among its members so that each one feels safe when acting, making proposals and making the necessary decisions.
Commitment and common vision

“If you want to go fast, walk alone, but if you want to go far, go together”
So goes an old African proverb that highlights the importance and power of team spirit in all spaces. And in a company or organization of any nature it is vital to strengthen teamwork and achieve the commitment of each of the members in the achievement of the general objectives.
An employee who feels part of the team, respected by his peers and recognized by his superiors will commit to his individual professional growth on a daily basis. You will understand that each step you take in the direction of your own growth, will be a step that will nurture your team and the company in general.

And we want to go further but by your side because our clients are also part of the team. It is time to close the gap and talk about what we can achieve together.
