Lessons in Team Building: Putting the "I" in "Team"

There is an old saying in teamwork:  "There is no "I" in team."

But there is an "I" in "Win."

There is an I in TeamTaken together we have one simple truth:  Teams succeed when members work together to maximize the contributions of each individual.

My team cannot win if "I" do not do everything I can to make victory possible.

Notice also:  There is no "I" in "Lose." But there is in "Fail."

Which reminds us of the other old adage:  Success has many fathers; failure is an orphan.

Failure has just as many fathers as does success... maybe more. If my team fails, I fail. If my team wins, I win.

Is your team succeeding, or failing?

And what's your contribution?
