Talk About Teamwork

I usually post on business and leadership related topics, and maybe this is a bit of a stretch, but when you think about it, the ability of the rider and horse to communicate team up with each other as they clearly do here speaks volumes about the power of communication and the building of trust. When those two things come together, excellence results.

As business leaders I think each of us knows on an intellectual level the degree to which it takes commitment and discipline to get to and achieve our goals. We also know how important it is for us to be able to communicate both plan and execution to our teams. And when we are able to accomplish this well, we all have a vision of what the outcome will look and feel like.

When a friend sent me this video it made me think that this was as good a way to visualize the result of teamwork as anything I had seen in a long time.

To be honest, I really don't know what the name of this sort of competition is, but the fact that the announcers are Brits suggests that it is certainly something that is popular in the UK and probably in Europe as well, but whatever it's called, it's impressive to say the least.
