There’s No I In Team
If ever you wanted a good metaphor for teamwork, football has to be it. For all the superstar strikers on hundreds of thousands of pounds per week, football is fundamentally a team game, and it needs every member of that team to work together to achieve success.
The same is true about any workplace. There may be sales superstars who bring in the business, or charismatic figureheads like Elon Musk leading the company, but they are still part of a team. Without their support staff, the shop floor workers, the cleaners and the security guards, their companies would really struggle.
When it comes to team success, everyone is important. Having a goal-scoring forward is no use without a good defence and goalkeeper at the other end. And none of them can work effectively without the trainers and the medical staff in the backroom. And without the guy who books the bus and the team hotel, the team would never get to away games in the first place.
Playing at home
Unfortunately, teamwork has been under serious pressure over the in the last few years. Close-knit teams who previously worked together in the office, are now spread across the region working from home. All the Teams and Zoom meetings in the world can’t engage with your team in the same way as being in the same room. Online meetings may be booked for important discussions, but what about those precious five minutes of confidence boosting you get in the coffee room, or the inspiration that comes when ideas get bounced around a group? How can you have those ‘watercooler conversations’ and engage you’re your team when you’re not sharing an office every day?
How to reconnect your team
As we touched on above, to engage with your team and create that sense of belonging takes more than just about collaborating on work projects. It is also about interacting socially, with non-work conversations, in a way that makes you feel you are part of something bigger than your role or the next project on your pile. This is where the concept of team building comes from. But you don’t have to drag everyone up a Lake District waterfall in a wet suit to make them feel part of your team. You can do it with football.
