Do You Know the Difference Between a Clique and a Team?

posted in: EFFECTIVE TEAMS | 0

I recently saw a diagram that explained it well.  Both a team and a clique are focused on a goal, but the goals are different.  A clique has an inward focus and a team has an outward one.

 

The irony is that a team, being united together in an outward goal, has a much healthier community factor than those who are only focused on themselves – and they accomplish something in the process. A group of people focused only on themselves grow discontented in a variety of ways, which has direct impact on their effectiveness.

The strength of the team lies in the goal.  The most gifted team in the world flounders without a clear goal.  Likewise, even a team of average people can accomplish amazing things with a vision in place and a goal in front of them.
