What Makes a Team Great?

Curated By Ralph

My favorite leadership quote is by Eleanor Roosevelt, who said, "Leadership is about making hard choices and being accountable for those choices." To me, it illustrates the importance of having a strong moral compass and being unafraid to stand up for what you believe in. Being a leader is not always easy, but with courage and conviction, anything is possible.

I had the chance to visit the United States Marine Corps one of their Training facilities And they run an exercise called the lrc The leadership reaction course it's Basically 20 mini problem solving Courses you know here's three planks of Wood of a different size you have to get All your Marines and your material Across The the little pod you know you know you Get the idea stuff like that and they're Timed And because the Marine Corps has men and Women which they do it separately They made a remarkable little uh they Made a remarkable little discovery Um men Fail very often Because they don't spend enough time Sharing ideas and planning they execute Too quickly because they're so driven to Win-win-win And they don't have the right plan so They fail Right Women Spent more time planning and very often Came up with the right solution but they Didn't leave enough time to execute so They failed And so it makes a case for Blended teams And this is true about anything Which is the more

The more alternative Styles and Alternative perspectives we have The more creativity we we bring to a Problem so male and female is obvious Did you grow up rich or poor Did you grow up in the north or the South You know did you grow up Muslim or Hindu Like all of these things will change Your point of view and how you see the World and if we have different people You know I know the cast structure the Cast structure is still somewhat alive And well in India and I know there's We're slowly trying to break it down but People who grew up completely Differently from each other bring Different ways of seeing the world and That makes a fantastic team That makes a fantastic team when we have Different points of view because we have Different blind spots as well and Different ways of seeing the world so Inclusion to me is about all the Different ways in which people live Their lives I want them all on my team
