“The strength of the team is each member. The strength of each member is the team.”
– Phil Jackson
Are you making the most of every member in your team to ensure the team,
as a whole, is firing on all cylinders?
In many teams, some people feel that they are doing all the work, while others feel that they are being under utilised; some people will tell you that team work takes time and/or they‘ve got more to lose than to gain from collaboration.
Yet all the research tells us that to be fast and innovative, teams work best — for the organisation and for the individual.
How can you get the best from your team and develop your own career at the same time?
At Hargraves we have found that healthy collaboration starts with high levels of individual confidence and connectedness.
