How does the machine work when it hits a bump? If your apparatus/team is finely tuned to adjust to pot holes, ditches, and the typical ups and downs of unforeseeable events, then the project is destined to stay on track. Achieving and maintaining balance with your team is essential yet not always easy to accomplish. It takes work. How each member interacts with the other makes any project successful. Cultivating the best skill set and working toward one goal forces your team to check their egos at the door. This warrants a great leader to orchestrate the team. Just look at how successful New England Patriot’s head coach Bill Belichick is with his strategy- “in order to create a great team, you have to give up a lot of your individuality.”
It does take one leader running the show and typically in a sizeable project, it should always be the homeowner driving this boat. The challenge is finding the right team and keeping the players on track. Lao Tzu states leadership best. “A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.” Remember to build your winning team before undertaking your project. Go Pats!
