Is Your Team The Perfect Blend?

"You don't get harmony when everybody sings the same note." ~Doug Floyd

 A number of years ago, a good friend and I were asked to prepare some punch for an event. We had talked about what type of punch to serve and decided that we would take every type of juice we could think of and mix it together. We were sure it would make a tasty, healthy punch.

Yes, it turned brown and muddy! The flavor was good, however, as some did venture to try it! We realized we had spoiled the beauty and color of the individual fruit by trying to mix it with every bottle we had selected for the punch.

The same method could be a mixed result with people. When we draw on each other's strengths, our team is enriched and it works well. But if we try to mix everyone together to come out with one style or one approach, we lose the very characteristics that made each individual stand out. Appreciated should be the unique perspectives that people bring to the team. Results will show how your organization's work will be enriched and fruitful!
