“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success!”
I joined Tacto a month ago. I was the first non-tech person on the team and my role had me thinking that I’d be a misfit among a clique of technologists. After a week I stopped worrying about this. Everybody was in their own silos and there was very little interaction. Even though my personality found this uncomfortable, I took solace in the fact that I wasn’t a misfit.
While Sharmil and Anuj were clearly workaholics, the team got caught between work and frolic. No matter how smart, talented, driven, or passionate an entrepreneur is, success will depend on his/her ability to build and inspire a team. A team can only be inspired by some common ground. It can’t just be a common vision and goals.. there have to be team events!!!
