Success: Next Step or Ceiling?
Teams can become a victim of their own success. Success often brings an abundance of new adventures for a team. What gets a team to a level of success will not keep them there. New levels of success will challenge the team in brand new ways. A great team stays humble and carefully wades into success so that they can learn as they go. Ordinary teams often get surprised that their success is not maintained by the same methods that helped them achieve it and therefore find themselves sliding back to a point where success is a ceiling and not a step.
