Group vs. Team

What differentiates a group of people and a team?

A group of people come together either by virtue of interests, past history, or an idea that they believe in. There is an invisible line that connects them all.

A team is on a mission to achieve a goal - sometimes a big hairy audacious one at that.  Everyone in a team is well aware of their strengths and the part they have to play towards it. A great team not only does their part, but also ensures that the edges overlap well so that the other person can do their part well.

Most startups and nonprofits are a group. You have to do the magic of building a team. A team, is carefully sculpted and cared for. That, is the role of the founder CEO.

A group that is stuck in the past or the present and not focused on the future is a group that is inevitably political. or fizzles out.

"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea." ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
