31 Mar Teamwork: No One Goes It Alone
A great aspect of baseball is the need to combine split second strategy with collaboration and performance.
On defense, it’s often necessary to catch the ball and decide if you can get the lead runner or throw to first. As a matter of fact, it’s a good idea to know your options ahead of time and consider your strategy. On a grounder, it takes one to throw and one to catch to make an out. No one goes it alone. Most importantly, you only get one chance to capitalize on an opportunity.
The parallels to the business world exist on many levels throughout an organization. Consider Marketing: Strategic thinking? Check. Collaboration? Check. Performance? Check. Your marketing materials and messaging must sustain and enhance your strategy, allow for the teamwork necessary for successful delivery of product / service, and set the table for the fulfillment of that newest opportunity.
