Why do you need a team? It seems that everywhere you look successful people are surrounded by a network of similarly minded (and similarly successful) people. Is there some big secret to their ability to perform at a higher level? Not really, but what they did correctly was to join with others that compliment their needs. To be successful in your own endeavors, no matter what they are, you need to have a team approach.
Let's examine the definition of "team". Team as defined by wikipedia is: a group of people linked in a common purpose. Human teams are especially appropriate for conducting tasks that are high in complexity and have many interdependent subtasks. A group does not necessarily constitute a team however. Teams normally have members with complementary skills and generate synergy through a coordinated effort which allows each member to maximize their strengths and minimize their weaknesses. Team members need to learn how to help one another, help other team members realize their true potential, and create an environment that allows everyone to go beyond his or her limitations. A team becomes more than just a collection of people when a strong sense of mutual commitment creates synergy, thus generating performance greater than the sum of the performance of its individual members.
