Our team is a group of people organized to work together interdependently and cooperatively to meet the needs of their customers by accomplishing a purpose and goals.
What do we mean by the term 'Team' ? I use the term to refer to any work situation in which a number of people are organized around a common set of objectives. So it can be large or small, temporary or permanent, fixed or fluid, project-based or functional - it depends on the objectives and how broad these are in the context of the organization. In some organizations, teamwork is a cure for bureaucracy - the team membership cuts across the normal structures. In some organizations most of the work is done on a project-by-project basis in teams whose membership composition changes depending on the task. Our organizations believe on team composition - picking the members of the team - is most important in team success.
For each problem or issue our whole team is to 'wear different hats':
At least this approach gets all members to consider all the angles and provides a safe technique for members to raise potential.
Developing a good team is a simple thing, although most make it complicated. There is no magic. There are no special ingredients. The best teams have the best and Fittest team members overall.
This is a series on “THE HOW, WHAT & WHY” of Business and Management?
No individual has sufficient experience, education, native ability, and knowledge to ensure the accumulation of a great fortune, without the cooperation of other people.
A good leader cultivates the moral law, and strictly adheres to method and discipline; thus it is in his power to cultivate success.
There are three key factors for creating an empowered team building environment:
Always be S.M.A.R.T.
Commitment: Obviously, we don't want people in our team who are not dedicated to the process of building a great business. Commitment to the process is the most valuable trait a team member can have.
"Commitment is the blood that breathes life into any team; it's the core of effective team building."
Without commitment any actions a team takes will be ineffective. Finding synergy is about getting everyone on the same page, commitment wise.
Integrity: The core of all business. Integrity defines nearly every aspect of lives: relationships, words, actions, and thoughts. All good things flow from the integrity of a team. A team with high integrity can stay committed to the core purpose. Teams with integrity stand firm in the face of danger, their personality doesn't shrink in face of stress.
Love: Great teams love themselves. Each member loves all the other members of the team. They innately understand that what the team achieves, it achieves together. Even when two team members don't see eye-to-eye on something, they respect the other's opinion.
Our team creates a loving environment which creates the seeds of success. Personal satisfaction and fulfillment occurs when teams feel comfortable, and are able to be themselves. This is when a productive and stable team can emerge.
