4/4/17 – Team Chemistry
Winning sports teams often talk about team chemistry.
Here’s what’s happening behind the headlines.
Occasionally, there’s a player who may not see much action but is critical to building team chemistry. On the other hand, there may be a player who’s so disruptive that cutting him is a plus for the team not matter how talented he is.
It’s not just sports. Any organization — such as your workplace — can have good or bad chemistry.
There were more than 200 free agents when NFL free agency started. Some have high potential. Others, less so.
A Washington Post columnist had a conniption that, as a free agent, Kaepernick was not immediately signed by a team. The columnist suggested NFL teams were blackballing him after his national anthem antics. And this was wrong, he argued.
But team chemistry matters. So does a team’s public image.
So you have to wonder why — of all these unsigned free agents — this Washington Post writer only worried about the one who refused to stand during the national anthem.
