Using Other's Talents to Accomplish
By John Tschohl
Team building is a delicate and time-consuming process. Anyone
can put together a group of talented people, but it takes a
dedicated team leader to bring everyone together effectively. One of
the most important considerations you must make is whether or not an
applicant fits into your company's culture. The right person will
build upon what you've created, but the wrong person can bring it
all down very quickly — and culture can take an awfully long time to
Learn to conduct the orchestra.
In the following
series of lines from Aaron Sorkin's already famous screenplay, Apple
co-founder Steve Wozniak holds the following dialogue with Jobs:
You can't write code, you're not an engineer,
you're not a designer, and you can't put a hammer to a nail… So
how come 10 times in a day I read that Steve Jobs is a genius? What
do you do?
I play the orchestra.
he could never have accomplished what he did alone. He needed
engineers, marketers and designers. His skill was in bringing those
people together and keeping them in harmony.
Amazon, Jeff Bezos' skill is bringing talented people together and
focusing them on the vision for Amazon. They work in harmony. Each
does their part for the success of the team, for the success of the
company. It's called a service strategy. He allows employees to
assist in creating new and innovative approaches that have a
profound impact on the customer experience — that's conducting the
Be a magnet for talent. As managers, team leaders
and engaged employees it's not enough to say that we need to get the
right people in our company. We must identify who the right people
are and create a process that gets them on board and in the position
The process works for both large and small
1. Identify who the right people are. Each
organization and team will have different needs so your right people
may be different than other companies and teams.
several people in your organization who you wish you could clone.
Write down their characteristics and traits and create your own
benchmark of the right person for each position; therefore, setting
the expectations for all other team members.
3. Identify the
type of person that fits your company and team culture. For example,
if you want to create a positive culture make sure you hire positive
people. If you want to create a culture that is creative then hire
4. If you invest your time, resources and
energy to get the right people on board you'll have fewer headaches
and expenses later on. Take your time during the hiring/recruiting
process to make sure you are all on the same path.
Remember, the people you surround yourself with will often determine
the kind of company you'll have.
6. Continued training is
essential. If you expect your team members to develop their skills
and stay on top of changes, don't get complacent about establishing
and updating your training.
Professional athletes put in
thousands of hours to sharpen their skills and prepare their bodies
for the rigors of their sport. They are routinely able to overcome
the pressure of high stakes moments because they allow their
training to take over. When that happens they can play or perform
without worrying about timing or their position. They are able to
perform without thinking about what they have to do next. They work
