What Having Different Perspectives In A Team Means

  1. Great post!
    It is refreshing to see someone writing on the perspectives – and celebrating the power in the ‘difference.’ 
    You are spot on when you say “Being part of the solution also means team players do not leave the thinking to others. Sometimes the solution is many thoughts away.” iWhen a team member abandons the thinking process and leaves it to others they set the whole up for failure. Part of the success of the team is in both the win column and the fail column. Sideline dwellers (as I like to call them) who elect not to share their view play it safe which attacks many things in a team. The greatest being Trust. 
    Thank you again for the great post. 

    1. Thanks Tammy! Different perspectives, if handled well, have the potential to propel a team further. Yes, trust is important for a healthy team environment. I like your phrase, “sideline dwellers”…
