The Transmutation of Any Team

No need to tell the name but I have witnessed the transmutation of a team from losers into winners. Or better put, the transformation of a group of egotisitical individuals (as we all tend to be) into a true team of blended personalities and abilities. It was a process (and surely it is ongoing) that seemed to be triggered by the arrival of a catalyst person that shook new qualities and attitudes into being in the other members. The prevailing outlook in the original group was palpably one of, “how are we going to manage to mess up this next opportunity” or “what new disaster is about to befall us?” This kind of thinking became a self-fulfilling prophecy, a kind of negative faith at work repeatedly. But what has developed before the the public eye is 180 degrees opposite: a confidant assurance that something good is about to happen, it is just a matter of how and who it will be this time around. I can even point to a moment in the timeline when the turnaround occurred, when the smug, expectant expression on the face of one competitor turned to surpise and then alarm that things weren’t going to unfold and unravel this time as they typically did. Good things continued to happen, and continue now, only by a slightly different recipe each time, taking various shapes and forms to keep it fun and interesting. That’s it, the operative word: FUN, the fun of the activity has been restored after so long a time, which makes it more fun to watch.
