Dear Colleague,

The idea of getting individuals to put aside selfish interests for the greater good of the group sounds ideal in theory. In practice, building teamwork is a messy and often frustrating experience. If you can get everyone pulling together, you’re that much closer to becoming a true leader.

Your career success depends on your ability to build successful teams. You may already see the wisdom of teams – you don’t need to be sold on why it’s better to delegate to groups rather than to individuals.
