The Safety of a Great Team
Knowing your team will not judge you but will have your back is a vital component to any team dynamic. Sadly, many people have no frame of reference for what this feels like. Great teams don’t worry about blame or fault in a challenging moment. They rally around each other to turn the momentum back in their favor. Ordinary teams point fingers and spend valuable energy and time to distance themselves from the mistake and mistake maker. Seeing people rally around you can be a shocking experience if you’ve never experienced that culture before. There is no better team-building exercise than to overcome something together and great teams see mistakes as opportunities to do that.
