An essay by cellist David Waterman from The Guardian (courtesy of Arts & Letters Daily):
-- Edward Tufte
A nice article, I especially liked the acceptance of different, non-artistic assets (Chinese food, sense of direction). Having co-authored a book, I suggest that shared commitment and lengthy absences assist creative collaboration.
I do wish that workplace colleagues could learn that "balance between assertiveness and flexibility - between being a brick wall and a wet blanket."

If a team refuses to storm, they block themselves from finding each others limits.
Without knowing the limits of each team member, you cannot know the limits of the team as a whole. Without such passion, one may never know if a performance went as well as it could have. Without knowing limits no one could set any worthwhile and challenging goals.
Whatever atmosphere that might make a team indifferent, I am suspect of any team that gets along to well. Such a team may just be making Powerpoint presentations rather than criticizing and questioning one anothers data. We here know the outcome of such a team.
In a risk-averted atmosphere in the current economy, it is far to easy to be complacent and submissive in the face of mediocre work. Everyone needs to be able to take a risk and state their opinions. Accepting criticism is just as important. Without honesty, a team is nothing.
