This week my travels found me at home (as you rightly guessed), kicking off Monday with my typical weekly WIG calls. On Tuesday I had my Berkshire Hathaway Energy weekly president’s meeting and on Wednesday, I first met with the teams at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Michigan Real Estate, Indiana Real Estate, Tomie Raines REALTORS® and Executive Realty and presented on mindset and leadership in the time of COVID-19. Later that day, I presented the “West Coast Offense” to a prospect from Hawaii and then gave my “4DX Tune Up” presentation to the team at the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Carolinas Realty family of brokerages. Finally, today I was on a Zoom introduction with three exciting new brokerage prospects.
In every meeting and presentation this week, there was a common theme: teams. A leader can operate in isolation, but a leader succeeds as part of a team. It’s not by accident that I’ve been thinking so much about teams – this week I listened to “Intangibles: Unlocking the Science and Soul of Team Chemistry,” a fascinating book authored by veteran sportswriter Joan Ryan.
