A team’s success ultimately depends on its ability to perform. Because each person is guided by his or her unique talents, the same situation can produce different reactions. What is extraordinarily easy for a colleague might be excruciatingly difficult for you. What’s stimulating for you, may be tedious or uninspiring for him.
When team members are aware of each other’s talents and strengths, they understand how each person is inclined to think, act and feel. This awareness helps the team to navigate the issues all teams encounter. They understand how the team can work best together to accomplish goals and performance objectives.
Gallup’s research has shown that a team’s direct path to growth and improvement begins with a primary investment in each person’s greatest talents.
