Law seven: The law of effective teams

Carl Bates writes in his book The Laws of Extreme Business Success about the 12 laws of business success. Law seven looks at teams and how best to create effective teams with effective members. Effective teams have effective members who know what is expected of them and get it done. Nothing saps a managers time and energy than having to micro-manage people who are energy thieves. The law states:

Extreme business success occurs in an environment where a team of loyal and supportive people with the appropriate energies and skills collaborate to achieve the business’ purpose. Knowing how to choose the right person for the job, and ensuring that your best people stay with you, is paramount for extreme business success. Along the way you will also have to make the difficult decision to let go of people who are no longer able to support the team’s effectiveness.
