Is a team ever “ready”?

I think they are rarely ready for team development and coaching, but start anyway! Teams are/were also not ready for the impacts of COVID, or inflation, or wars, or other environmental factors, but it happens/happened anyway.

When I reflect back on a team I worked with over a number of years, and know very well, they were not ready. The leader wasn’t really open to change at the time, the team were new to their roles and completely absorbed with significant system and process changes, and they lacked the resources they needed to deliver to stakeholders. But we started working together anyway, and it turned out to be the right decision. Recently the leader shared “Looking back now I am grateful we started the work when we did, as the work done early on played a big part in having survived/succeeded the impacts of COVID-19.” And the team feel the same way.

We don’t know what’s around the corner and what may seem like the wrong time, might in fact be the right time. Just start!
