Teams are able to contribute much more than the individal members are thought of.
Intelligent and effective teams take advantage of the strengths and capabilities of each individual. Famous saxophonist and band Benny Golson about the teamwork of jazz musicians: “First of all, teamwork presumes a sound choice of the two or three individuals working together as they need to respect each other. But as soon as they start it’s like sharpening two knives in whetting one on the other. You try to fill the gaps left by the other. One becomes the barometer for the other. And one electrifies the other.”
Achieving outstanding performance together.
The leader takes care of frictionless team play using the advantages of open communication, putting trust in the team and cultivating mutual appreciation, encouragement and support as well as the will to ask for and accept help. Each individual is aware of his/her tasks, his/her role, following the maxim: “I have to do it myself, but I can’t do it by myself”.
