Rocking the boat?
Only the guy who isn’t rowing has time to rock the boat.
A good team is a busy team. Not just busy doing anything, but busy doing the right thing. And being clever about it. There’s no point in working all hours – this is usually a bad strategy where you end up with a tired and touchy team, and not a very effective one either.
A great team cleverly works on how to do less and achieve more – and it’s also one where people are busy doing things that feel important, relevant and meaningful.
An exceptional team wants to be where they are because they know they make a difference and they are able to do more because they are a team, all contributing in their own unique way.
And they wouldn’t think of rocking the boat in a bad way (some constructive rocking is needed to continuously challenge our thinking) because they have a vested interest in the success of the team, and it keeps them focused on doing their best – because they want to.
