BasketBall is LIFE - Move the ball

The more teammates touch the ball the more impactful energy is around the court, the defense get tired and confused, our team is engaged and there is a good karma in the field.
Each pass means:

  • I trust you
  • I need your help
  • Your skills makes me look for you
  • I care for the team, not just this shot

For the other team is the complete opposite, their physical and mental energy comes down, It's a very challenging battle.

The same thing happens in companies, either super stars take a direction and move forward or teams engage to experiment and count in each other.  It might be the right/wrong direction team or single person push, still the behavior and championships rely on the execution of the team.

A great example on the software development field is code reviews.  They might sounds like you don't trust a single individual, but It's the complete opposite.   The team cares about what you do, let us be part of it.   Every time you comment you pass the ball and the team outcomes become richer, the ball moves, you pass it because

  • you may fail the shot?
  • because you don't want to take risk?
  • you don't care?

No !!!

You pass it to have fun, do nice plays, make it easy, get the other team tired and win championships not only one play.   Same thing with code reviews: share knowledge, pass the energy of your code, explain, receive feedback and enjoy the journey as a team!

Focus in the team energy, because that's what creates miracles in the court and kickass software!
