Shh, don’t tell anyone this secret: The single greatest lever for transforming any group into a team is the feeling that they are in the same boat together. If I only had time and attention to work on one thing with the team, it would be this.
When people feel like they are in the same boat together their behavior towards one another is naturally more open, supportive, and collaborative. They are more willing than otherwise to give and ask for help.
