Isn’t it great when our favorite things happen to be trendy? It makes us feel like we are influential and effective enough to be considered mainstream. What happens when the winds of change switch directions and my favorite methods become obsolete? Am I annoyed by the trend? Probably. Will I dig in my heels and disparage the new trend? Not if I want to be effective. Great teams are not partial to anything but effectiveness. They are adaptable, flexible, and open minded. Good teams win once. Great teams stay relevant by adjusting to stay ahead of their opponents.
