Businesses need teams that are ready to roll up their sleeves and perform well together. It’s not a matter of getting along – if we’re hiring people with emotional maturity, this should never be an issue. It’s a matter of understanding the value each member brings to the group and then applying individual strengths to group goals. It’s about leveraging cohesiveness and alignment to create something even better than we could make happen on our own. It’s about becoming a force to contend with by virtue of collaboration and group thinking. Most importantly, it’s about treating the team as an organic, ever-changing, morphing entity that requires feeding and attention.
