7 Things Teams Do

 

  1. Teams involve more people, thus affording more resources, ideas, and energy than would an individual.
  2. Teams maximize a leader’s potential and minimize her/his weaknesses. Strengths and weaknesses are more exposed in individuals. In other words, teams amplify strength and cover individual weaknesses.
  3. Teams provide multiple perspectives on how to meet a need or reach a goal, thus devising several alternatives for each situation. Individual insight can never be as broad and deep as that of a team when it takes on a problem.
  4. Teams share the credit for victories and the blame for losses. This fosters genuine humility and authentic community. Individuals take credit and blame alone. This fosters pride and sometimes a sense of failure.
  5. Teams keep the leader accountable for the goal. Individuals that are not connected to the group goal can actually undermine the work by reason of indifference.
  6. Teams use the word “we”, and ” us”; instead of “me” or “I”.
  7. Teams can simply do more than an individual.

If you want to reach our potentials or strive for the seemingly impossible —such as making generational impact, you need to become a team player. It may be a cliché, but it is nonetheless true: Individuals play the game, but teams win championships.

 

Be a team player. Learn to grow a team. Learn to work in a team!
