Whatever your position in business and in life, the ability to contribute to productive and motivated teams will help you work and live more effectively with co-workers, family members and friends.
Chances are, much of what you do at home and on the job involves other people: co-workers, suppliers, customers, family, friends, etc. Most individual in the modern work world interact with others throughout the day, every day.
Successful team-based organizations—where virtually everyone supports the group’s mission and (more importantly) feels supported BY the mission—are committed to the philosophy that on the path to success, no one will be left standing at the side of the road.
In well functioning and high-performing work teamsXX
In well-functioning and high-performing work teams, individual team members know they can count on their peers for cooperation rather than competition. They can depend upon recognition and reward in direct proportion to the real value created for the organization as a whole.
X Yet many organizations foster (consciously or unconsciously) more competition and conflict than collaboration and cooperation. And many employees report a tangible disconnect between value created and recognition/reward earned within their organizations: the “winners” are often not the actual “producers.”
