How Do You Choose Your Team?

In 2011 Mumford and Sons broke out after their appearance on the Grammy’s.  After watching them, a friend of mine quipped:

Too bad Mumford didn’t have any sons who played drums…

It’s tempting as a manager to think about the elements you need on your team and worry about the skills you don’t have.  You might think you need just a few more people, just a few more players to make your team perfect.  You start to believe that if you match some framework of what the ideal team looks like, everything will be easy.  Maybe you don’t need all those elements after all.  Maybe your team already has everything in place to be successful.  Maybe you just need to believe that these things are plenty:

  • Passion
  • Commitment
  • Communication
  • Talent

Maybe you have exactly what you need right now even without a drummer…
