Working as a Winning Team
It's a great sunny day so it's time to get out and enjoy the weather. Many of us would like to, but we have projects due, tasks that need to be done, people that we need to see, and money that needs to be made. What if your company gave you that time off as compensation for the great effort that you gave to the team to finish a project on time?
See, when it comes to teamwork the main focus is for the team to work together. In a "Winning" team there is an equal balance of people that have unique strengths and weaknesses. Take the example of the "Chicago Bulls" of the 1990s. Michael Jordan was the greatest basketball player to play the game, but did they win a championship every year that Michael had played? No.
It took a (D-type) Michael Jordan to lead the team and control the outcome. It took a (I-type) wild and energetic Dennis Rodman to keep the team fun and interesting. It took a (S-type) Scottie Pippin, Bill Cartwright, and John Paxson to support the team. And it took the (C-type) analytical mind of Phil Jackson (coach) to create a foundation for the players to play on. In the end they (Chicago Bulls) were able to capture six championships within eight years. What is your team made up of, ...all Jordans, ...all Jacksons, ...all Rodmans, ...or all Pippins, Cartwrights, Paxsons?
It is your choice who's on your team. For this next month try finding the right people for the right job, and you will have a "Winning" team every time.
