A random collection of people is called a group. We are constantly moving from one group to another. Work groups, play groups, social groups. We are a member of many groups throughout the day.
But a group does not necessarily equal a team. A team is more than a group of people spending time together. A team is a group of people joined by a common purpose and goal. A team generates a synergy that encourages team members to maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses. A team creates an environment that allows everyone to grow beyond their limitations. A team gives you a sense of purpose and belonging.
Brown and DeLine is fortunate enough to be such a team!
