"Teamistry" Season 4 Episode 3...let's discuss for a chance to win swag!

shannyshan Atlassian Team Jan 06, 2023

teamistry (1).png

Teamistry explores the chemistry of teams that achieve the impossible through collaboration. This season takes on a docuseries format as we deep dive into Concorde: the world’s only supersonic passenger plane to have taken to the skies. Concorde is a testament to what happens when teams go beyond borders, egos, and politics to make the impossible, possible.

If you haven't already, check out the conversation around Episode 1 & Episode 2, then respond to our Episode 3 prompts for a chance to win some Atlassian swag 😎 (we'll randomly select a winner from this post the week of Jan 16). 


Episode 3, The Big Bird Flies! prompts: 

Respond to at least one prompt in the comments for a chance to win Atlassian swag!

  • In this episode, we learn more about how the teams in the U.K. and France strived for excellence together: This was an example of each side being willing to admit when they were wrong or if the other side had simply come up with a better plan. John Britton is clear that on their own each side could not have accomplished what they did together. What do you think about this culture of healthy competition in the name of getting to the best end product? Have you encountered a similar paradigm at work?
  • This episode also dives into some major external pressures/threats (political, environmental, etc.) the teams were facing. Have you ever worked on a project that was affected by macro pressures/threats? How did you handle it?

Thanks for listening and participating. 🙌

I anderestande it is fine

I found it interesting how the British team adapted once Dudley proposed the changes to overcome the wind resistance even though they had already prepared some of the pieces. Interesting quote about how "the right side won." I think this is good to keep in mind and is goes back to breaking down communication barriers within (and across) teams. One part of good communication is being open to others' ideas. In this case, if the British had just ignored Dudley's ideas and weren't open to another idea being "correct," then this change might not have made its way into production.

I found the last portion of this episode interesting - thinking about how much changed throughout the lifecycle of the Concorde. I think this is similar to my workplace. When we go through and groom our tickets, sometimes I'm amazed by what has changed in just a few short months. Thankfully, we're rather agile and able to adapt quickly to changes. We're fortunate to not have political and environmental factors changing our "course."

Great points!! And love that you pulled out the "the right side won" quote - such a good reminder of seeing the bigger picture and getting to the best outcome for customers rather than the best outcome for yourself.

I think there almost always ends up being some type of external stress when you experience success - for whatever reason. So it's not surprising that you end up with outside forces wanting to control things and have it their way to get some type of gain out of it. And when things go poorly, those are the first to desert and run. Yes, I have definitely seen that, and am better prepared for each time it comes along. It's quite shocking the first time it happens though. 

Now on to more cheery stuff.  :-)

I think healthy competition done in a fun way is a great way to go. Always keep the camaraderie in the midst of that, knowing that next time, the opposition might be your teammates.  :-)  Competition tends to dive people forward when done in the correct manner. At the end of the day, shake hands and may the best man or woman win!
