The other thing that was screamingly apparent: the value I put on teamwork.
A positive by-product of Covid is the clarity that comes from not being so physically busy all the time. It brought me full circle to work I did at P&G 30 years ago. Training people to work on teams is by far the most energizing work and time that I spend. I think I lost sight of how much fun teamwork is.
There's an old story about the synergy of teamwork and Belgian draft horses. The story goes: One horse can pull 800-1000 pounds. But, two horses can pull three times the weight of what the single horse can pull.
And, when Belgian draft horses are raised and trained together, they can pull four times the weight of a single horse. FOUR times. Dang!
What if we can do that in business teams?
