Effective teams achieve more together than their individuals ever could alone
The dream team is focussed, energetic and poised to unleash its brilliance on an unsuspecting world. Team members know their priorities, share a common purpose and bring their expertise together to achieve great results. In reality many teams are a group of individuals who do their jobs, happen to report to the same person but lack common goals. Or perhaps it’s not that bad and they just need a bit of polish to make them shine.
