In order for a community to thrive, it must be comprised of people who are all contributing to the big picture and success of the group. If everyone is a solo act, there will be no cohesive culture and the group will lack in it’s ability to thrive and function optimally. This is a simple human observation or society, but it also applies to teams within a company.
The beauty of a well functioning team is that it produces results that are far greater and more innovative than what a single person could ever accomplish on their own. So, here a few key reasons why it’s important to uitilize the team dynamic within your organization.
- INSIGHT – When pulling together a room of people who all have different areas of oversight, it allows for deeper insight of what could go off the rails. Each is able to see the systems in a unique light, and chances are you’ll be able to catch potential pitfalls before they happen. Without the collective input from the people on the ground, you may overlook issues that need serious attention.
- CREATIVITY – Everyone on the team will have their area of unique expertise and knowledge. No one can know and excel in everything, so it’s important to get all of the experts in the room to bring the collective power of information together. An effective team will provide a variety of perspectives that the leader will not be able to possess independently. As a side note, a good leader is willing to recruit people who are better than they are. A good leader doesn’t have and shouldn’t try to provide all of the answers.
- INNOVATION – Because of the unique perspectives, each will understand ways in which the organization can move forward into new ventures. Relying on a team can be huge in terms of identifying and casting new vision for opportune possibilities. You may not know what is ahead for your industry, but someone on your team might!
