Every teammate makes two types of contributions: 1) toward the team goal and 2) toward the team dynamic. My work and expertise help the team accomplish it’s goals. My personality and ability to collaborate help the team work together toward the team goals. We tend to evaluate our ability to move the team toward the goals but we often lose track of how our methods and actions impact the team dynamic along the way. Today’s actions toward today’s win should never undermine my ability to experience future wins with my current team.
