What do you mean there is no “I” in Team?
We often hear the phrase, “There is no I in Team.” What does this mean? I think the implication is when you are working on a team no one can be “self serving” they have the good of the team in mind with what they are doing.
This is true, but there is an “I” in team because it is the individuals that make up the team and they individually have to make choices on how they choose to work when on the team.
We may have the common vision and goal of the team at the forefront of all that we do, but it is our individual choice in how we choose to work together with our team.
What is it that makes one want to be a part of the team and not to wander off on their own?
There are three key things that take a group of people and make it a team that sticks together.
Without these three key ingredients along with commitment to the cause, you will be hard pressed to have a successful team that can reach the goals of the group.
“There is no “I” in team, but there is in win.” ~ Michael Jordon
