To Whom It Should Concern,
I am writing to you on behalf of a team I have will have the distinct pleasure to work with. I don’t know when – as I have yet to meet them, but they are out there. Some when in time. This team will adopt an entirely new way of working and will change many of the processes around them. They will also change the tools they are used to. This team is a natural collaborator. They may not have all the answers, but I will see them get stronger and more resourceful with every challenge that they come across. They will develop a calm and deliberate manner with which they approach the work. They will help the organization to understand the product they inherited and their own capacity for work. This team will often strive for opportunities to better themselves. They are earnest in delivering a product that is slowly becoming what the user really wants. It may require a bit if patience as this team matures. There will be sparks of innovation and creativity that pay small dividends and will continue to accumulate for the benefit and influence with the other teams. This team will need your support and at times your patience. They may even struggle at times or misstep as they find answers on their own. They may even challenge you. I will tell you, there is greatness in this team. They will grow and tackle some tough problems for the organization. They will try, learn, teach, and influence others to improve just as they expect it from themselves. Congratulations on having such a team. They are the ones doing some heavy lifting. I hope you trust their professionalism and that they honestly want to create something valuable. Help them with obstacles and to celebrate the small wins along the way. Stay engaged. Your interest and guidance will eventually find that they will be able to run faster than you could imagine. Congratulations.
