Wow! I just walked into my office after taking a few days off and one of my team members said, “Check this out, look what I’ve done!” As she toggled through all our new QR codes that linked us to all our social environments, including our full website, I was so impressed with her customization and innovation. “And here is how we do this and this is what we do here and here is how we can make this better…” Then my other team member said “I have just added this to our new website, and this is how it looks.” As I looked over her shoulder I watched as she toggled through all the features she had just build and published.
Wow! Wow! Wow! What a dream team! As I looked at both my team members I realized the power and strength of a great team. I knew from our past meetings that the three of us come together and brainstorm fantastically, but now more than ever I could see how each one of our strengths was a perfect complement to the others’.
When I listen to them tell me what to do or where to go for this and that, I sometimes feel like I am in a vortex of blur. But I am confident that as long as they know the end result is within our vision, we are all together on the same track.
What does your team look like? Do you balance the needed strengths of your business? Can you walk away for a few days and come back to an operating system that was better than you left it? Does the contribution of each partner move you one step forward to achieving your goals?
If not, how come?
