The Champion USA Women’s World Cup Soccer Team has me thinking about team work.
Have you ever been part of a team that just clicked?
Maybe it was on a sports team. It may have been or still is a work team. Maybe a group of volunteers doing something to give back that each person cares about enough to volunteer. Everyone really cares about the success of what they are all doing together. No one seeks to be the star or even cares to be the most important part. There is really no one most important part. It is a team effort thru and thru.
“Cooperation is the thorough conviction that nobody can get there unless everybody gets there.”
– Virginia Burden
Each person knows they are important to the team. They each know if they are not able to show up that they may be replaced and the team will go on without them. We are all just people. There are going to be days and times when each one of us will need to be lifted up and inspired to continue to do our best. Isn’t it easier to listen to and to be inspired by your team mates when they do this for you? We will welcome this from our trusted team mates as they have only one agenda – what is best for the team!
“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
– Phil Jackson
The best teams are made up of people who are not really the same in personality as each other.
Yes there will be a common thread which will initially bring the team together. Yes this will be the one main thing that is why the team exists. What does keep the team together is each other. The unique differences between each team mate creates a positive tension which draws each person into a culture which develops in each team. It is essentially the personality of the team which develops over time. The team grows into it’s own culture and it’s own unique personality.
“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life forever.”
– Amy Poehler
The best teams really do not care about individual accolades and awards. They want the team to win. They want the team to click. They want the team to accomplish and exceed their goals.
“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.”
– Harry S. Truman
There is nothing stronger than a great team working together to accomplish their goals.
