What makes a great team?

During an exhilarating period of England’s women’s football (I for one am super excited to watch our #FIFA #worldcup quarter final match this evening), we are looking back to our blog post written this time last year during the men’s world cup, which focussed on the hidden value of football world cup fever! What makes a great team great?…

The hidden value of Football World Cup fever!

[June 2018 #tbt, edited June 2019]

 

With the current excitement triggered for many with the ensuing football world cup, I have been pondering, “What makes a great team great?”

I am reminded of Leicester City winning the 2016 Premier League, having started the season as favourites for relegation at the end of the season. This team serves as a great reminder of how individuals can come together and, at least in the eyes of the nation’s football fans, create magic. They also offer hope to all sorts of teams out there in challenging work settings, where others have low expectations of what a team is capable of, that coming together, united by a shared sense of purpose, using the best that everyone can offer in combination can truly achieve fantastic results.

Across all industries, we know that effective teams deliver better results. In facing whatever challenges lie ahead for your work team, take some time together to think about how you can collectively be most effective, how can you best engage with each other, and for you all to be clear about what your collective and individual’s tasks are. Taking the time to do this may seem like an unwanted additional challenge, but could save you time and deliver better results in the long term.

Let us know how you get on ☺
