Creating Team

I’ve been interested in teams for years – particularly, how do you create a rally?  What starts & stops momentum? 

I was one of the founders of a company 30+ years ago and I designed a workshop  to create us as a team – It included our agreements, our mission and values and so on.  The company itself was poorly designed and I’ve always thought that it lasted far beyond its worth because of that workshop.  We grew so close that we could not see the forest for the we’s.

Sports, of course, is what we look at to see team.  The Yankees are a great example of stars and money not being enough to make a team.  Football is a great example of team – one player covering for another, back ups taking over.  The essence of team, it seems to me, is the willingness to have the whole be more than the sum of its parts, the one player being willing to have other players be great.

Recently I’ve been looking at how the Law of Attraction works in the context of team – actually, in any setting of group: family, community, organization, country, culture.  What is the group mind?
