A team starts out with two or more people with the same end goal in sight. Each member hopefully has a skill different from the other, yet in alignment with each other. This is the most important part of being a good team member; the awareness of alignment. We are all on a team whether we know it or not.
What do teams provide?
If you are an independent professional or entrepreneur, you have resources that you contact for your printing, advertising, social media, and the like. This is a team. You may also hire a bookkeeper, a virtual assistant, or a coach.
Corporate offices have many teams, sometimes multiple teams that work on the same project.
Your family is also a team, be it your close relatives or extended families.
As a team member, you need to have a vision for the outcome and its ramifications as well as have a leader who helps you see this vision and outcome clearly. Everyone wants to know what is in it for them – both team and whoever benefits from the team’s work efforts.
As a family team, you may pull together if one family individual needs support. You may meet by phone or Zoom to discuss the possible outcomes and determine a path to resolve this issue.
As an entrepreneur or small business owner, you can use a team of professionals to help you succeed. If they succeed so, do you.
In global corporations, team members have similar styles, although the content and context of the team may appear to be more specific while providing better outcomes for the buying public. Teams that work from home have a different challenge, yet this can work as well.
