Having people with the skills and experience necessary to grow your business is great! However, the world’s best businesses invest in binding their great resources into effective teams………. because teams are more effective than individuals – no matter how talented each person.
Does your business build teams? Or, does your organisation refer to ‘team’ when it really means no more than a group of people at the same level or in the same specialist department?
Take team sport as an example – any discipline that interests you. How often do we see some of the world’s top players fail to perform because they do not function as a team? Too many ‘solo runs’ with players seeking personal glory – not team success. Or failing to understand how their team mates can support them or how they can support their team mates. The result? Underwhelming performance. The same is true in business. Does some of your great talent operate in a silo, disinterested and not encouraged to support the efforts of their peers? If so, what can you do about it?
It’ll not be plain sailing but Bridgespan will work with you every step of the way to implement the change.
