Summer time is for me a moment to reflect, relax and to take the time to contact again people I haven't spoken for some time.
This time I did this with a memo I wrote and one of my contacts came back and reacted; "Don't forget, growth is not everything". And he is totally right. Economic growth does have it's limits and should not be a goal in itself but a result of other actions.
One of those "actions" is team development and it's great to see that after one day of work I still feel relaxed! My mailbox is again empty and my task list still in one overview.... Well done Bob...? No! Well done team!
The team found solutions for the challenges, solved issues, in other words they grew! This is real GROWTH, growth of processes, growth of individuals and growth of our team!
I'll be off again for some weeks ;-)
