Who is your team?
In every aspect of life, we find ourselves working on a team of some sort, whether that be as professional athletes, teams within your work, a rec league team, or the team you have at home with your spouse, significant other, and family. We are meant to work together. It underscores the importance of knowing your strengths and your role in each team structure.
Know what you don’t do well
I will spare you all of the sports analogies but playing to your strengths is critical to organizational success. It is more important to know what you don’t do well and establish your own limits. We all know what we do well or at least have an idea of where we excel. A team functions best when each person understands both their sweet spot and their boundaries.
Push your limits as a unit
However, knowing your sweet spot and your limits is only part of the equation. To truly experience growth, you have to evolve by adapting your role, expanding your sweet spot, and most importantly push yourself to the edge. Push what you think is possible until it feels a bit uncomfortable. This doesn’t work without 100 percent participation. With 100 percent participation, you grow as a unit. When participation is less than, individualism begins to take hold. It is natural to look around at your surroundings and notice those that are complacent and not moving with the unit. You begin to question is this the right place, what should “I” do to get ahead, and should “I” look for a new team? This thinking will permeate the unit, slow momentum, and if left untreated kill the team.
Play to your strengths together
Establish the culture within your team. A culture that says we do this together. We know our roles, but we are never afraid to step outside of those roles to lend a helping hand for the team. When we all play to our strengths, we learn more, we accomplish more, and most importantly we live more.
This idea is paramount to the ongoing growth at Streamline Event Agency. Our team DNA is made up from so many life experiences. The most evident thing you would see each day if you were in our office, is our team plays to their strengths, both individually and collectively. We know what we do really well, we know our limits, but we push those limits together to enhance our clients experience. We are a team and we want to be an extension of your team as well.
