In a recent interview with the magazine the Chicago Association of Realtor’s, Mr. Ahmed outlined the importance, definition and dynamism of high-performance teams. For Haris Ahmed, it is first important to distinguish between teams and groups. The primary difference between a group and a team is that team members are equally committed to a common purpose and goal, which they cannot reach individually. The purpose and goal can only be met when the individuals come together as a team. A team needs to articulate common purpose, goals and an agreed upon working approach.
Haris Ahmed went on further to say that ”High performance teams are rare. The salient difference between a team and high performance team is that its members are deeply committed to and vested in each others growth and success. An example? The Chicago Bulls, when they moved from being individual stars to working together. Michael Jordan was always a high scoring player, but the team didn’t become a powerhouse until Jordan, with Scotty Pippen, Dennis Rodman and others, worked together to win.”
Haris Ahmed recognizes then that to bring about these high-performance teams, it is vital the business or organization has a company structure that allows everyone to share the same goal and visions. This is why it is so important to set out company strategies that can be understood and followed by everyone in the teams and their units.
