20 thoughts on “Let Me Ask You a Question – 1/2/18

    1. Me too. I don’t like playing with others. Mostly, if the ship is going to go down it will go down because I messed up not because some douche didn’t pull his or her weight.

  1. It really depends on the task. When I wrote to grants I didn’t want anyone within 20 feet of me. But if were strategizing activities to offer certain age group or a particular theme, it’s better to have a group.

  2. I’ve done a lot of both, and often alone in the particular task with a team for backup and support. The preference, I suppose, depends on the task or problem, but it is always good to have a team available.

      1. How often does one have a choice? A team assembled horizontally within an organization will have some sort of instigator who will probably emerge as the leader. When there is a vertical component, hierarchical rank will tend to determine the leader. And sometimes one can have more influence when not appearing to be the leader. In short, it depends on the team and the task.

  3. Myself. When I was a PTA president I had a great team to work with. We planned the state convention, very rewarding. I was lucky to give a job to someone who did it well. But usually, myself, I’m too picky!😂

  4. I used to work in the performing arts and that was always as a sort of “team”. I enjoyed some of those teams but others had team members who made life difficult so that was not so much fun. My second career I always worked on my own and that was good all the time.

  5. I can enjoy being on a team for a short time, but over the long haul, I don’t like having to depend on others for success or have them depend on me. This may be counter to the current working norm, but it’s who I am.
