People ask, “How big is your team?” Bigger the number, more impressive and powerful you look. People like to have bigger teams, bigger employee base, and more number of branches. If you are managing a team, you want to ramp up and have more people reporting to you. If you are managing a business, you want to expand (even if you are struggling to run the existing ones)
Does size really matter? There are teams and businesses with only 5 or 6 people working and they create far more value than a business with 100 people might contribute. There are thriving online businesses which makes millions of dollars with only 3 people working in three different countries (they are not even working together)
What is important is the value your team contributes to the business. As long as your team is right sized and going to contribute high value, you and team will be always in demand and always remain powerful. Focus on value not the size.
