Startup Team is Not Getting Along; How to Get Different People Work Together?

Managing people is one of the most difficult tasks on the planet for a very simple reason that human behavior is unpredictable. It becomes even more difficult when the team consists of people from diverse cultures and customs. At the same time diversity in the workplace is essential as it infuses more ideas and information in the team resources.

It’s a well know fact that the heterogeneous groups provide much better and efficient solutions than homogenous groups.

Following steps will help to get different people work together in a startup team.


Encourage interaction

You must get your team together and indulge in various team building and interaction exercises. From simple introductions to assigning partner of different culture will promote the interaction in your team.


Deal with fairness

Irrespective of whether you are dealing with personal issues of your team or professional issues, you need to be sensitive and fair. However, in some cases treating everyone exactly the same does more harm than good and thus you need to look at the broader picture. For example, avoid meeting on religious days or give an early off to people who are on fasting etc.


Reward team rather than individual

It doesn’t mean that individual rewards shall be kept aside. However, you should give your team recognition and make them realize about their contributions which has led to this success.
