My Favorite Team

My favorite team is the one I made the most mistakes with and learned the most from.  They also happen to be the most high-performing team I have seen.  They had trust, drive, commitment to each other and their work.  More importantly, they had fun.  It didn’t matter how difficult the work was, they still had a blast with each other.  Managers knew to leave us alone.  They trusted the team and it was well-deserved.  I had the pleasure of getting back together with them this week and we picked right back up where we left off.  Sometimes, I wish we could “get the band back together” but, I know that’s not part of my learning plan.

I couldn’t tell you what makes this team so special to me.  They just are.  This was the team that taught me to worry about the team and not about the work.
