A2 - Snowflakes

  • Snowflakes are one of nature's most

  • fragile things, but just look at what they

  • can do when they stick together… Vesta Kelly

  • Team Comments:

    • Greater than the sum of their parts

    • Can achieve when working as a group, stronger.

    • No two snowflakes(aka individuals) are the same

    • A snowflake can easily melt when the heat is on, but a snowball is much tougher.

Covey Consultants - Success

  • Interdependent people combine their own efforts with the efforts of others to achieve their greatest success. StephenCovey

  • Team Comments:

    • Good definition of the benefits of team working where interdependent people(i.e. groups that need to work together because they need some tasks to be done by the other party, exchange information,...) would perform better if they join in a team sharing same goal, values & identity rather than working by just communicating or collaborating.

    • Critique: teams may be problematic: groupthink, no common identity sense or values, needs extra communication & coordination,...

    • Diversity among team members’ skills helpful on complex tasks but not on simple tasks.

Delta Consultancy - Rowing

  • No member of a crew is praised for the rugged individuality of their rowing… Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • Team Comments:

    • Everyone has to pull the same direction to achieve shared goals.

    • No individual “gets a medal” unless everyone does, i.e. everyone gets the same result when they pull together.

    • Everyone is equal in getting an end result/reward.

    • If one person is out of sync this impacts negatively on the team as a whole.

    • Everyone is unique in bringing different qualities in addition to their rowing. It takes more that rowing to succeed.

    • Everyone is the same.

    • This is about team building, i.e. Developing over time to achieve a shared goal.

Innovations - Ways of Thinking

  • Some people are locked into that old fashioned and tiresome habit of thinking based on ‘I am right, you are wrong’ Edward de Bono, in 'The Positive Revolution', 1991.

  • Team Comments:

    • Flexibility while in a team is paramount along with diplomacy

    • Being open to the ideas of others - compromise

    • Sharing ideas - being open to suggestions and being open-minded

    • Being able to give a contribution to the goals of the team

    • The individual contributions can not match up to that of the whole (team)

    • Thinking you are always right means that your mind is closed to the possibility of others having something valuable to add to the task

    • Being open minded and creative, always looking to innovate

    • Finding the truth behind mysteries that are not covered by any other means.

    • Building and believing progress from findings and increasing willingness to welcome new ideas.

    • Allow mistakes to happen, welcome criticisms in order to accomplish sharing objectives.

Arrow Consultants - A Single Arrow

  • A single arrow is easily broken, but not ten in a bundle. Japanese proverb

  • Team Comments:

  • There is strength in numbers, individual strengths can be combined, weaknesses diminished.

  • Alone your weaknesses are visible but as part of a team much harder to exploit.
