[FLR] 3 Times When it’s Better to Work Alone, Rather Than on a Team

Happy Friday,

 

Of course, team is core in any organization, but there are times when working alone & on an independent project is of great importance. Taking the time to process ideas & create is key. You can see how “group” think can at times hold things back or reduce the overall impact. As a leader, what roles can be of a more independent nature, or what portions of roles can be aligned on a more independent basis.

 

While it is true, there are no I’s in team.

 

There is an “I” in win.

 

It’s not an all or nothing scenario.

 

Create space for both team and individual performance.
