Your Team Needs Rhythm with Dr. Gil Brady

Episode 12

Welcome back to the Mission First People Always Podcast! Today’s episode is all about teamwork. Teamwork is a term we initially hear at a very early age. It usually happens at 5-, 6-, or 7-years old, or whenever you step onto a sports field or court for your first attempt at sports.

Whether it was t-ball, soccer, basketball, or something else, there was probably a group of kids who didn't fully understand the rules or point of the game, always brimming with raw energy and bouncing off each other. While the volunteer coach keeps talking about the need to work together to score goals, score runs, and win games.

Of course, we all know that it’s not always easy to get little kids to work together to achieve goals. In fact, there’s often more chaos than cooperation. A ball hit toward second base can often bring six or seven of the nine defensive players charging to chase it down. While one kid chases butterflies in the right field, the catcher discovers that he had to use the bathroom about that time and wanders off the field. That leaves no one to cover first base as the runner crosses the bag with great encouragement from the coach.

As professionals in the workplace, we tend to do a little better, but that’s not always the case. If teamwork is defined as a coordinated effort toward achieving a common goal, then there are some teams I’ve experienced that didn’t meet the definition. As a result, performance suffered–and many weren’t very satisfied with the experience.

However, great leaders and great teams do better than this, and the tool that helps them is rhythm.
