Have you ever noticed how many trees have Lichen. You know that grey or green moss-like plant that grows on bark and rocks. Did you know that Lichen’s have even been sent up to space and continued growing and functioning. They are one of the most successful organisms in the biological world, surviving in the harshest climates in the world.

 

Amazingly Lichen is actually a team effort. It was only 100 years ago that botanists figured out and proved that Lichen is actually made up of two different plants. The team players are so integrated and work so well together that lichen’s were considered a single plant up until then.

 

Lichen’s are actually a symbiotic relationship between algae and fungi. The type of fungi and algae working together results in different leaf shapes. Amazing! What an example of team work.

 

We all know that team work is really important if you want to develop something that lasts. Teamwork is an amazing vehicle to achieve more than you can by yourself.  Dale Carnegie said: “It marks a big step in your development when you realize that other people can help you do a better job than you can do yourself”.

 

 

A couple of team lessons we can all learn from Team Lichen include:

  • Select your team members based on the skills and talents you lack.
  • Let team members’ uniqueness shape the functioning of your team. Facilitate that team members thrive. Great teams are structured around people, not people structured around teams.
  • Do what you are good at and enjoy it.
  • Enjoy the companionship.
  • In a great team people won’t even be able to see the individual – they will just see an effective company delivering superior service. 

 

The result of teamwork will be:

  • Everyone prospers.
  • You will have more time to do what you are good at.
  • The company thrives, not just survives

 

It is true: team work makes the dream work!
