Team focus on tasks and objectives

Many factors help a team achieve effectiveness and efficiency; the first factor that I consider is the group's mental health and well-being. A team leader and the team members should handle the stressful situations that the team may encounter in any case; therefore, the team should be able to remain calm and react quickly to achieve their goals.
The second factor is team cooperation because every single team member is just as crucial as any other team member; every member should be solid and motivated to achieve team effectiveness, no matter their role or position in the group, as they say, if there's "a weak link in the chain", then the whole team could break.
The third and most important factor is the team focus on tasks and objectives, the team should set a goal, a viable goal, that could be completed in a certain time, that goal could be broken into smaller tasks, the team leader and all their members are responsible for planning and executing those tasks in time and always have their focus towards that goal, there's a word in Japanese "hoshin kanri" that means "direction" and "management" if the team doesn't know where they are heading, then they are doomed to get lost in their way.
