Distractions are inevitable. Nothing ever goes completely acccording to our plans. Problems pop up and need to be dealt with. Great teams learn how to resolve the unexpected without losing focus. Unexpected problems create the opportunity for learning moments and can push us toward a better end than we imagined. They can also place a team on a rabbit trail that pulls them off course. When all we see is why we can’t move forward, we are distracted. Great teams are so focused that they see through their problems.
