Why the “I” in Team

It starts with 1

It starts with 1

Leadership workshops from coast to coast discuss high-performance teams and coach managers on methodologies used to develop such teams. Team chemistry and team dynamics play crucial roles. However, a team by definition is a group comprised of numerous individuals working or competing towards a common cause. Stellar teams begin with solid individual efforts.

This doesn’t signify each contributing members is required to be a Super-Star. (I already droned on about why you don’t need a team of All-Stars). Nonetheless, don’t discredit the value of individual contributors who exceed status quo, igniting and inspiring the rest of the team to greatness.

The “I” can focus on personal excellence while contributing to team greatness.
