How to Foster Goodwill with Your Team

Feb 14, 2017

Everyone on your team wants to feel appreciated.  The more you take the time to do that, the more you can develop goodwill with your team, and the more you can build a good brand.


Scripture makes many references to how we should treat one another.  Bringing these practices into your workplace will revolutionize your team.  And it will create a positive culture that will contribute to your brand.

Here are eleven ways that you can build goodwill with your team by practicing these “one anothers.”


1. Greet one another (2 Corinthians 13:12).

Welcome each other each day.  Be genuine in a daily affirmation.  Tell them you are glad to see them.  And you are glad to have them as part of the team.


2. Be of the same mind toward one another (Romans 12:16).

Remind the team they are a team.  And they need to work together as such.  But they need you to show them how to do that through your active leadership.


3. Serve one another (Galatians 5:13).

Do not be too stuck on being a leader that you forget to serve.  Lead by example by doing something that you shouldn’t have to do, so that others will be willing to do things that they shouldn’t have to do.


4. Do not judge one another (Romans 14:13).

Be willing to give others the benefit of the doubt.  If you are willing to look at a situation from another’s viewpoint, you may be surprised by what you might learn.

5. Put up with one another (Ephesians 4:2).

We are not always the people we want to be.  We all have bad days.  Instead of judging each other, we should be willing to let it go and remember that we sometimes do the same thing.


6. Care for one another (1 Corinthians 12:25).

Be willing to help out a fellow team member.  Someone may be struggling with something you can help them with.  And that will make them want to help someone else.


7. Bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2).

Life is not always easy.  And we all go through hard times.  Take an active interest in your team’s wellbeing.  It is during those times that you can solidify your goodwill with your team.


8. Forgive one another (Ephesians 4:32).

Your team will fail sometimes.  Do not condemn them for their failure.  If their failure does not rise to the level of dismissal, then forgive them for what they did and help them do better next time.


9. Do not speak evil of each other (James 4:11).

Gossip will kill a team spirit faster than anything.  Assume the best of others.  So that others will assume the best about you.

10. Build each other up (1 Thessalonians 5:11).

Your team will have low points.  They will have trying times.  Help them get through the tough times by encouraging each other.


11. Love one another (Romans 13:8).

Love summarizes all of the “one anothers.”  If you are willing to do unto others as you would want them to do unto you, then you will foster goodwill with your team.
