No “I” in team
There are sports teams that have excelled over the years and some that have consistently done poorly. In many cases, they are a model for teamwork because success is dependent on being effective teammates.
This holds true in schools, business, and believe it or not, our government. Unfortunately, in many cases egos and lack of true diversity get in the way.
In my last corporate job, I had departments ranging from legal, IT, finance, fundraising, and others. I developed ways for the department heads to work as a team. It was not easy, but it did work out.
Teams do need constant attention because of changes that happen in life, and the need to keep everyone hungry to be their best as time goes on.
However, this does improve when compassion becomes the number one priority.
