Dream teams are made up of people with the more diverse skill sets.
“The solution is continuous refocusing on the common goal and principles are critical for teams to maintain sync.”
Good teams are made up of people with a variety skill sets and backgrounds able to approach and view the work from very different perspectives.
The other side is that when people come together with completely different view of the world and the business scenario, it can be hard to get everyone in sync on how and what needs to be done straight away.
This is probably why sometimes teamwork can be tricky.
But when the equilibrium is reached the results can be outstanding.
When everyone is aligned and shares a common view of the outcome they’re trying to achieve, teamwork gets easy.
People naturally do their part and bring their unique strengths to the table.
When teams don’t have that alignment, things like working at cross-functional projects, working on different problems, and even focusing on individual status within the group over the goals of the group emerge and it can be detrimental.
All kinds of factors can cause teams to lose sight of the common objective in the workplace: disagreement about the goal, changing circumstances that make some previous goals irrelevant, changing composition of the team, these can all create complexities for keeping a team working smoothly.
