Coming Together, Sticking Together


A rug being woven.

A new team is just like a freshly woven piece of tapestry. It’s woven together by shared goals, a common purpose and passion for joining that organization. This tapestry is woven tightly with all the different strengths and abilities of each team member that make it vibrant and resilient.


As new teams come together and embark on an exciting new journey, they often find themselves directed towards outputs, results, performance and neglecting one of the most critical aspects of forming a new team: connecting with one another. The energy and joy of joining a new team together should be directed towards cultivating a deeper understanding of each person’s motivations, values, drivers, stressors, preferred communication styles, goals and dreams.


Like weaving a tapestry, it takes time, attention to detail and a passion for the art. Understanding that the intricate and delicate threads will soon be a masterpiece, minimizing gaps and tying up loose ends, the more time we spend on creating it. Just like a team, we foster a collaborative, cohesive and desirable team dynamic if we choose to see the value in spending quality time on it.


To build a solid team, it’s so important to be genuinely curious about one another’s personal experiences, their proudest work achievements and the challenges they’ve overcome. By bringing humanity into our work, we awaken the untapped potential within each individual, empowering them to stick together and win together.


We’ve spent the last few years having to be six feet apart, we need to focus on closing that gap and reconnecting with each other with purpose, once more. In a sense, we’re all relearning together from the beginning. We almost have to treat our existing teams like brand new teams all over again.


We should all commit to picking up the thread and needle to start our own team tapestry.
