With everyone busy doing their thing, hitting deadlines and getting on with the day-to-day, it’s easy to let get out of whack with each other. Not that it causes friction, but there’s a risk of team-drift. Each unit operating independently, floating further apart whilst losing awareness of the other pieces, and whether they still fit together.

It’s easy to convince yourself that as long as one person – you – knows what’s happening, everything’s ok. That because you can everything from your place in the universe, everyone else somehow knows what’s happening too.  Which might be true, or maybe (probably) not.

Biggest clue it’s time to get in a room together? When you’re surprised when someone who really show know, says, “Oh, really? I didn’t know that was going on.”

All the one-to-one’s in the world don’t substitute for time in a room, sharing.

Skippy strategy: Watch out for team-drift. When you see it, pull everyone together.
