13 Timeless Principles for Creating Success and Fulfillment as a Team Member

The Team Comes First

by David Meyer

Russ Sarratt and Rusty Chadwick’s basic guide to the mind-set of successful teams focuses on the emotional connections among team members.

Russ Sarratt – the senior director of leadership for the WinShape Foundation – and Rusty Chadwick – director of WinShape Teams – explain what makes great teams great, and how leaders can organize, manage and sustain them.

To explain how teams should work, they turn to the metaphor of an orchestra. The conductor is the team leader. When everyone in the orchestra follows the conductor’s directions and plays the same score, the orchestra makes beautiful music. In parallel, the authors say, when individual team members collaborate and prioritize the team’s needs ahead of their own, the team can do great things.
