*You can also use metaphors to describe ways to achieve a goal. In the first example, colleagues are compared to baseball players. In the second, teamwork is compared to gardening. Plant the seed is an idiom meaning 'do something that will develop in the future.'
Your colleagues are like players on a baseball team. Each team member has a unique skill that helps the entire team get the job done.
You have to plant the seed of excitement to motivate people to work together.
