A few weeks back I attended She Leads Africa She Hive NYC. I learnt a lot in being in the space and I am grateful for having the opportunity to be surrounded by so many amazing African women. One of the things I took away from the event was the importance of having the right people on your team. This month we will focus on some of the key elements of having the right team and how do you actually build the right team. For purposes of our discussions this month let us keep in mind that Teams are defined very loosely. A team can be a group of people you bring together for a short term project, or for something much longer term being for e.g. your business or your organization. A team can also be your network of people who are in your inner circle that you can count on to move and shake things to move you to the next level of your career, business or organization.
When we launched love and sisterhood campaign it was a very intentional approach to assure women that indeed we can work together and most importantly it is critical for women to work together as we believe we can do so much if we do.
So as we take the journey this month to talk about teams, we look forward to sharing some gems with you all and also learning from you all on your experiences on working on highly effective teams as well as building those teams.
