“Superteams” Are More Than Super!

Building Your Superteam

What is it like to be part of a great team? It’s happened to me a 4-5 times throughout my career and I hope it has happened to you! As you may know, it’s a euphoric experience—there is this sense of being part of something bigger than ourselves, deep community—true connectedness, and a willingness to do “whatever it takes” to accomplish the mission. When I have been part of these “great teams,” I have felt like I was living life to the fullest.

The Components of a Great Team

At the start, great teams are about getting the “right people on the bus” and “in the right seats.” I am in the process of building a “superteam”—I am looking for champion–the right people for the right seats on my bus. Many organizations throw teams together in haste or with little consideration. But I want a team that is built and not born—so, I will consider: necessary skill sets, emotional intelligence, knowledge, values, and chemistry needed for the task ahead. I don’t want just another team to work with to get a job done. I want to be part of another “superteam” where I can feel the passion and connectedness that impacts our company and our world.

Are you building a “super team”? Who are you inviting on your team? Are they on the “right seat” in your bus?
