Being a great team has little, or nothing, to do with being great friends

26Feb11

Perhaps the best example comes from sports, from basketball.  And, hopefully one of the members of some of the greatest teams in basketball history, will get elected into the Hall of Fame this year.  Not because of his likability, but because he was the right person on the right seat on the right bus on any team that wanted to go from “good to great.”  Yes, Dennis Rodman should be a shoo-in for the HOF, and yes, the Rodman story should be part of any leadership course or MBA curriculum out there.

So, again, the best teams have:

•The right size

•The right mix of skills

•A common purpose

•Common goals

•A common approach

•Mutual accountability

Sounds like the Bulls of yesteryears to me.  And some organizational teams that I have been a part of in the past”  http://es.pn/hf5pGU
