Let’s assume you manage a team of 5 people with average productivity:
🎯 Perfect alignment: Everyone is pointing in the same direction.
💘 Imperfect alignment: Some are pointing in the right direction. Some are not.
🔥 Total misalignment: Everyone is pointing in a different direction.
Now imagine your team is comprised of 10 people.
Now a team of 100.
Now a company of 1000.
Team size is a compounding factor.
Your headcount scales the good, the bad, and the ugly.
As a manager, it is your job to orient your team in the correct direction.
