Who's on first?
The creation of an effective team environment is vital to the success of any business. A winning team will all have their eye on the ball while simultaneously performing at their highest individual level. Identify your team player's strengths and weaknesses then delegate projects accordingly. The team will not achieve their goals if even one player drops the ball. Employees utilizing their natural strengths and aptitude will always deliver and inspire the rest of the team.
Dream Team: the dynamic culture of all parts working at full potential for a common goal.
Three Bases of a Dream Team:
• Balanced roles and responsibilities based on individual team member's strengths and personalities
• Reward and recognition of team member's through recognition, financial incentives or promotion
• Team building through group experiences and motivational events to foster the team bond
Balancing roles and responsibilities throughout the team is crucial. Team breakdown is inevitable when new balls are thrown to team players that already have a ball in their hand. Knowing when to add players to the team will prevent the breakdown of the whole. In other words, it is detrimental to force a pitcher to catch or an administrator to take on marketing.
Marketing is "a whole nother ball game." A marketing team fills your stadium while you focus on your game. And without fans there would be no one to cheer you on.
No one can do it alone, nor can every team do everything. If your team is not equipped, nor have the extra time to handle all the necessary elements to market yourself with a broad stroke, find a team than can journey together with you and run alongside your team.
