Think about your team at work. Do you have a shared goal or vision? Do you know the role that each person plays? Do you trust each other? Can you manage complex situations? If not, consider how you’ve built your team, with each person functioning like an ingredient in a complex recipe.
If you’ve built your team (added the ingredients) in alignment with your long-term strategy (recipe), it’s much easier to stay on course (not collapse the soufflé!).
People have different skills, talents, backgrounds, interests, and inner resources that serve to make them stand out in a group.
Including diverse voices and perspectives is a key part of what makes dynamic teamwork so effective.
Continuously creating, filling, and arranging roles based on skill and personality, as well as reinforcing a solid foundation, will help lead your team to be naturally driven, capable of managing complex situations, and motivated to operate in ways that drive success.
