Shane Snow

There are times when teamwork makes everything come together, and something lasting is created. It is also possible to achieve greater results than any one individual can achieve alone. Teamwork, however, is often frustrating. Going it alone can seem like the best option. It's not true at all! True dream teams emerge and accomplish the best results if everyone on the team is open-minded, empathetic, respectful, willing to challenge each other, and open to dissent. Put the roles in reverse. Whenever your team is trapped in an argument where no compromise can be reached, consider switching sides. When you are forced to defend your opponent's idea, you'll find that not only will this reduce tension, but everyone will see the benefits of both. Eventually, the right solution will emerge.
