Stop! Collaborate and Listen…
Recently discovered this article, courtesy of Forbes.com, that I’d like to share with you all! Titled “5 Ways to Build A Spectacular Team Without Damaging Your Ego”, it really gives great insight as to what mindset you need to make your team successful. Teams, in my opinion, are the best way to combine potentials, and achieve the maximum degree of success. Ever heard of a thing called a “Brain Trust”? A Brain Trust is when you collaborate with your team by talking aloud all together and solving a problem. It’s the perfect way to make sure all perspectives are seen, considered, and accounted for so that nothing goes unconsidered. If you have a problem you just can’t solve, ask the people whose opinion you value most! Your colleagues are most likely the only people who understand the given situation better than you. It’s obvious when you miss something just because you’re too close to the situation, so outside perspectives are essential! Don’t ever be too proud to ask for the help of someone who may seem much more inexperienced, because you never know what insight they might have to offer.

One way to build a team capable of bringing success to your business is to make sure you have a diversity of perspectives required to see all sides of a situation. No two people think alike, so this should be fairly easy to accomplish. People from different backgrounds and upbringings nearly always approach problems in different ways. This is helpful because others can be more resourceful, creative, or analytical than others, and THAT’S OKAY. Being the boss doesn’t mean you have to be an expert in all things, and that’s why you create a team to help you out!
