Paul’s wisdom for Team-Building, or for Interdependence: 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 (NIRV)
There are different kinds of gifts. But they are all given by the same Spirit. There are different ways to serve. But they all come from the same Lord. There are different ways to work. But the same God makes it possible for all of us to have all those different things. Leaders aren’t supposed to do all the work, but are to effectively broker the talent on their team. Good teams use every gift and enjoy both unity and diversity. Consider Paul’s philosophy of team building:

The Team possesses a variety of gifts or positions, but pursues the same goal and God.

Everyone has a contribution to make.

God is the source of each gift, so he deserves the glory.

God chooses who has what gifts, so we must not compete or compare.

Team members are to function like the organs and muscles in a body.

No team member is less important than another.

God’s goal is team harmony and mutual care.

Although members are equally important, they are meant to be diverse.

We should not compete with each other, but complete each other.
