It’s not just the office where you have to be a team, but every aspect of your life. Your team needs to know you’re not just a number on a spreadsheet, but a real person.
The key to being a good team member is knowing who you are, and how to be yourself. So what if you are a spreadsheet? Or a zombie? Or a ghost? Or…
In a game where everyone plays the same character, a great team would be one that all know what they need to do to be successful. While its nice for a game to have a clear hierarchy of roles, its a little annoying if everyone has to know exactly the same things. When it comes right down to it, a good team is a group of people that all love each other, and understand each other.
When it comes to teamwork, I would say that a perfect team is one that is not only all playing the same character, but knows exactly what to do with them. When you have the power to lead a group, your team will be led by you. When you have to go to multiple meetings with the same team on the same day, the leaders of that group will have to be able to keep up.
Having multiple meetings with a team is hard enough. Having to coordinate those meetings in order to keep everyone on track can be a nightmare, and that’s why teams that work well are so rare.
Sure, you can have teams with an abundance of members. In fact, most teams I’ve worked with have more members than I could handle, and I’ve never had a very successful team. But to my surprise, the teams I’ve worked with are pretty diverse; some teams are comprised of a single person (like the team I just described) and others are comprised of dozens of people who are usually strangers (like the team that I just described).
It’s hard to get a team that’s going to work well for you, but you can have pretty limited teams and a team that you’re working for, but also has a lot of members that you would get very lucky to have.
Ive been reading a lot about teamwork lately, and I notice that the way I do it is almost entirely my own fault. Because I don’t like doing things the way I’ve been taught, I like to work in groups. I like to take people on teams, and I like to do things with my team that I wouldn’t normally do with one person.
This was a new one for me. I was doing very well at this with my team, but I wasnt doing well with everyone else. This is a lesson that is very common in my team. Everyone is an individual. Everyone can do what they want to do. But if everyone is doing their own thing, then it doesnt work well. If everyone is doing the same thing, then it doesnt work well. If everyone is doing something that they enjoy, then it doesnt work well.
I have a new team called the Bitter Pill. I like to do things that I wouldn’t normally do with one person. I think it’s because there are a lot of different people on my team, but it’s very hard to coordinate and everyone enjoys doing things that aren’t their normal way. I’m sure I’ll also be doing plenty of things with my team that I wouldn’t normally do with one person.
