Some years ago, Google conducted an extensive study on how to build the perfect team. After two years, and millions of dollars, they had collected data on almost every team within their company. Their goal was to find the recipe that would turn out a perfect team every time. If you want to grow your business in the coming year, then you need to build the perfect marketing team. To do that, let’s look at what the Google study found.
Google looked at all sorts of variables among their most successful teams and also their least successful teams. What did they find?
There was no pattern. It didn’t matter if the team was made up of friends, strangers, male, female, culturally different, etc. They couldn’t find anything that would tell them why some teams were more successful than others. So, Google decided to approach the problem from a different angle.
If it didn’t matter who was on the team, then did it matter how the players interacted?
So they started collecting more data, and they started running more regressions and all of a sudden everything became clear. What they figured out was that the way the team members treated each other was more important than who was on a team. Creating an environment where people feel like they can speak, they have to speak, and that others are listening, meant greater team success.
