Teams That Work

Recently, I have been taking Leadership Training Courses for athletic administration. I thoroughly enjoy this training—and athletics in general—because of the emphasis on team . . . more specifically, teams that work.

Participating in team sports gives students a venue to learn about integrity, honor, teamwork, discipline, mutual respect, fair play, common cause, preparing for the future, commitment, self-discipline, perspective, service, loyalty, handling success/failure, and realizing that limitations are self-imposed.

Successful sports teams are driven by genuine relationships and relentless communication? How well are those two characteristics represented in the various organizations, departments, and hierarchies in which we work? If need be, how do we turn the knobs on those characteristics to keep them in a state of continuous improvement?
