Are You a Real Team?

We just had to share the article below from Jon Gordon about Are You a Real Team? and teamwork.  Enjoy!

There’s a difference between being on a team and being a real team.

People who are on a team focus on their own goals.
People who are part of a real team focus on team goals first and their individual goals second.

Individuals on a team are committed to getting better and improving themselves.
Individuals who are part of a real team are not only committed to getting better they are also committed to each other and the team.

When you are on a team you think about how the team can serve your desires.
When you are part of a real team your desire is to serve the team.

When you are on a team communication isn’t a priority
When you are a real team communication is essential to build trust, commitment and teamwork.

When you are on a team you care
When you are a real team you care more.

On a team, your time is more important than your team.
A real team makes time with the team a priority.

On a team, trust, love and respect are not often discussed or cultivated.
A real team focuses on building trust, sharing love and showing respect and ingrain them into everything they do.

On a team people fight and the fighting hurts the team because they don’t have trust and love.
A real team also fights but the fighting makes the team stronger because they have trust and love. They grow from their disagreements.

On a team, not everyone is on the bus.
A real team has everyone on the bus with a shared vision, focus and purpose.

On a team, there’s a lack of leadership
A real team has strong leaders who develop other leaders.

People on a team have an ego to want to be great.
People who are part of a real team also have an ego to want to be great but they give up their ego to serve their team and a bigger cause in order to be great.

So how about your team? Are you just on a team or are you a real team?

I encourage you to gather your team together, read this newsletter and honestly ask each member of the team what they think. Then discuss ways you can grow stronger as team.
