3×5 Leadership looks into the question – are we a family or a team?
I don’t think we value being part of a team enough, or do enough to understand the dynamics of elite teams. I’ve never liked to call my team a family, for one simple reason – my love for my family is unconditional. Being a part of a high-performing team is highly conditional. “Family” has long been a buzzword in athletics, but I don’t think it’s genuine. If you keep screwing up on our team, you won’t be on the team very long. That is not what happens in a family.
3×5 takes a look at the question from both sides.
