Cut the crap, Get to the point, and explain why Team Building is Critical to Success.

First, banish the thought that by finding candidates with similar dispositions, thoughts, and ideas can lead to success. Having bunch of people parroting to one another is like having identikit clones producing the same results with no creativity and no expansion.

The idea of forming a team is to find candidates with diverse backgrounds, controversial, and have a vision of their own. A creative team is a mixed bag of positive and negative.

The visionary:

• I see it in colour, big, bright, and clear
• I feel the amplified sound of its creation.
• I smell the perfume of each of its product
• I taste the multiple saltiness and sweetness of the product (if applicable)
• I feel the touch of the product (lightness, heaviness, silkiness, softness, warmth, coldness)

• I feel the emotion of thrill, excitement and gratitude.

The Pleaser:

“I know what you mean, and it looks fantastic.”

The Problem Finder:

“I see it, BUT, there are persistent problems.”
The Solution Finder: “I see it, and here’s the quickest way to do it.”

This well-formed team have insight and clear direction into where it is going. They are supporters, participators, anticipators, and good planners. They carry out effective management of resources under shifting priorities to meet the expected results within time, budget, and quality standards. They may not agree with each other all the time, but it is this astute disagreement that lead to good judgement.

Looking for candidates to live by the book is ridiculous. Pretending I know it all is detrimental, but admitting my ignorance is what makes me a perpetual seeker of knowledge and a lover of wisdom.

Until you read or hear me again, may you remain blessed and a blessing to mankind.
