I recently interviewed Lasse Hamre, co-founder of TASK.NO, and he shared some valuable insights on teamwork, trust, experimentation, freedom and responsibility. Here’s a quick summary of our chat, complete with some funny direct quotes, tips and numbered lists.
Lasse is a true believer in the power of teamwork. As a singer and a military veteran, he has a unique perspective on what it takes to create something beautiful and powerful as a group. According to him, the key to success is to listen to the pulse of the team and to understand where you fit in.
Here are some of the other takeaways from our conversation:
Trust is everything: Lasse believes that trust is the foundation of any successful team. He said “if you want to create something with a group, you sort of have to listen to the group as a whole. And maybe there is room for a soloist somewhere. But the soloist couldn’t have become a soloist if it wasn’t for the group.”
Experimentation is key: According to Lasse, experimentation is crucial for growth and progress.
Freedom and responsibility go hand in hand: Lasse believes that true freedom comes with responsibility. He said “It’s wonderful. I have to tap into the right tune and the right rhythm and to have the same beats as everybody else in the group and be part of something bigger.”
Lasse sees the choir and his team as a product, and he believes that the audience is not there to listen to him, but to listen to the choir. He said “So the product is something we made together.”
So, if you’re looking for some inspiration on how to create something beautiful and powerful as a group, look no further. Lasse’s insights will help you build trust, experiment, and find your place in the team.
