Team Work

So much has been written on this subject; Team Work, it's almost hard to add any thing at this point. T E A M; TOGETHER EVERYONE ACCOMPLISHES MORE. That is really easy to say and it makes for a great acronym. It seems it has even hit corporate America. They have integrated it into TQM "Total Quality Management". They call it "team building". They talk about quality. They talk about communication. They talk about goal setting. They talk about productivity. They talk about this; they talk about that. That's the problem; it's all talk. The real problem is that you can't talk about team building and downsizing in the same sentence. Building means growing, expanding, planning, etc. Downsizing is tearing down, discharging, shrinking. Which is it? Either you are building a winning team or you are starting over. If they are going to do both, they should downsize first and then team build second. Otherwise, you can talk all you want because no one is listening. The people are: either laid off, fearful of their job or not interested in the B.S. anymore

When we say teamwork, we must mean it. We are not should not stroke you and tell you "You are wonderful." We expect performance from you. Just like you expect performance from your team captains and employers. Remember a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

Team work is an important concept, perhaps the most important part of any business. You need to ask yourself and your team; Are we in it to Win it? Yes or No. Think about it.
