“The strength of the team is each member. The strength of each member is the team.”
– Phil Jackson
Teams are built on the assumption that given the tools and opportunity people will collaborate successfully because we are social beings. But is it that easy?
In many teams, some people feel that they are doing all the work, while others feel that they are underutilised; some people will tell you that teamwork takes time, or they have more to lose than gain from collaboration.
Yet all the research tells us that to be fast and innovative, teams work best — for both the organisation and the individual.
How can you get the best from your team and develop your own career at the same time?
At Hargraves, we’ve found that healthy collaboration starts with high levels of individual confidence and connectedness.
