There is a great deal of satisfaction that comes when you are part of a team. The energy that comes from working with others towards a shared vision is palpable. Success becomes the result, not just a goal or a thing to be achieved.
Without teamwork I would argue that while a specific task or objective might be achieved, the true opportunity is left unfulfilled. Teamwork unlocks the magic of what could be.
Why then do teams get off track? Lack of a crystal clear vision or goal and clearly aligned team and individual objectives that bring focus and clarity to the work at hand. Without this there is always going to be some sand in the gears so to speak.
If you haven’t read “Measure What Matters” by John Doerr I highly recommend it. One of the best books I have read on creating focus and clarity as a team. Truly exceptional.
