While personal achievement is always
encouraged and rewarded, we most value team
players who are “all in” on the success of their
team and embrace playing a role in something
larger than themselves.
Check your ego at the door.
Our primary goal is to help people.
That starts with understanding everyone’s
story and genuinely caring. Never forget,
“every person you meet is fighting a battle
you know nothing about, so always be nice.”
Listen first, talk second, and never judge.
It’s really that simple. Great teams are
made when everyone on the team has a
clear understanding of what they need
to do, when they need to do it, and then
follows through…no excuses.
Do the work.
Open, clear, and frequent communication
encourages valuable input, that leads to
collaboration, that spurs innovation, which
ultimately results in a successful team. So,
yeah, communication is pretty important.
Be open. Be clear. Be Available.
When we all commit to being a team
without egos, who care deeply about others,
while holding ourselves accountable, and
openly communicating our thoughts and ideas,
then being honest isn’t only right, it’s easy.
Your mother was right...it is the best policy.
