Team mathematics

Give yourself a number.

Great at what you do? That’s a 10.

Just starting out? Make it 2. New but nice? Try a 4.

Now give everyone on your team a number (don’t tell them). Every relationship you have on the team is a number:

  • You plus them: You work, tasks get done, nobody gets hurt.
  • You minus them: Work gets done, but “ugh.”
  • You multiplied by them: What you do raises the bar for the whole team.
  • You divided by them: One if you must go. You don’t care who.

Great collaborations on a team have high numbers.

Are yours?
