Visualizing The Shape Of Teams

Cloverleaf

I like to think of teams as having a “shape.” Each team has its own unique form, made up of outliers. Imagine a rubber band being stretched around a set of pegs on a pegboard. They may not be dramatic outliers, but they contribute to the defining shape that gives a team their identity. Lots of other pegs can fit inside the shape without changing the shape of the team. These are not outliers. That’s healthy. If a new outlier enters the scene, then the shape of the team changes.
