The Importance of Teaming

“Teaming is a verb. It is a dynamic activity, not a bounded, static entity. It is largely determined by the mindset and practices of teamwork, not by the design and structures of effective teams. Teaming is teamwork on the fly. It involves coordinating and collaborating without the benefit of stable team structures, because many operations like hospitals, power plants, and military installations require a level of staffing flexibility that makes stable team composition rare. In a growing number of organizations, the constantly shifting nature of work means that many teams disband almost as soon as they’ve formed. You could be working on one team right now, but in a few days, or even a few minutes, you may be on another team.”

Misstree

Wind whips storms of paper and dust, rain drives east and Misstree drops a large arm sized branch. I view this drama from bed. Madonna blares into my brain from bluetooth speakers. We are all connected now, I assume.

She drops another big one onto a long grey-blue bunkhouse at the back of the Sulter property. I look away to type my glance back in time to see this one slip off the bare tin roof to the ground.

I’ve been worried about Misstree for a while.  More later. Foremost on my mind, can i transplant this gift and bring her lifeforce and mystery with us into the future?
