No matter your definition of team, one of the best examples of true teamwork is the beloved Ted Lasso who’s had so many words of wisdom, there is a book (or 5). His undying belief that a dynamic team will beat anything (despite not knowing ANYTHING about the sport) was a great showcase of the power of teamwork.
“Taking on a challenge is a lot like riding a horse, isn’t it? If you’re comfortable while you’re doing it, you’re probably doing it wrong.” – Ted Lasso
