Teamwork in Business

Over the last decade or so, the terms teamwork, team, and coach have proliferated in business discussions. This Harvard Business Review article explains more about the anatomy of teams and teamwork. I think you will find it insightful and quite detailed.

It explains the team and its dynamics (many members change over time) and how individual and team goals change over time. Team diversity is an important factor in interpreting team goals and context.  If your team is geographically diverse, as well, differences in the availability of certain resources can be challenging.

The need for a system, goal articulation (why), a shared mindset and strong leadership (coaching) are all important elements in the success of your business team. I am associated with a company that has understood the concept of team for over 30 years. It has made my activities more effective and much more profitable.
