There's no "I" in Team
Posted by at September 14, 2005 7:38 PM
I think that the statement, "there's no I in team" promotes what I think is the most important aspect of a team, dependibility. You are only as good as the man or women that is working next to you. I have played team sports my whole life, everything from basketball to soccer. All thourghout those experiences I would depend on my teamates to do their job and they would depend on me to take care of my job. As these relationships of dependibility grow you begin to believe in them. You begin to believe that they will never give up, always keep fighting to reach the goals of the team. This is very evident in the game of football, as those players step up to the line they have to believe that man next to them is going to give it everything he has to get that 1st down, that touchdown, or that win. When the quarterback drops back to pass there has to be no doubt in his mind that his reicever is going to catch the ball. When the running back takes the hand-off he has to depend of the offensive linemen to each do their indiviual blocking assignments so he can gain yards on the ground. When a team can depend and hold accountble every person doing their job and believe in the goals they have set to reach, only then can they reach maximum effecentancy. I hope you can understand this football example of dependibility within a team. I thought that it was the best way for me to decribe my feelings of dependibility within a team. Also another characteristic within a team that will make it effective is leadership. You can lead by example, with experience, or with emotion. Leaders could be anyone or everyone on a team. Leadership will help the team focused on the task at hand and inspire the team to stay motivated to complete that task. Overall an effective team has to believe in it's own dependibility and once every member of the team does you can over come the worst of challenges. In my field of housing studies dependibility and leadership are very evident. Since this being my first year in my major classes I don't quite know what job I will apply it to. But as i look at my father's contruction company I see noticeably how teamwork is appiled. On the contruction site of one of his custom homes there is a team of subcontractors that depend on eachother to put together a house piece by piece. I hear my father all the time say "building a house is like putting together the pieces of the puzzle, one piece will make ya or break ya." He once told me that it took him a long time to find subcontractors to work for him that he could depend on. Once he could complete that team atmosphere within his buisness he finally started to make some money. To build the kind of houses that only "A TEAM" could build.
Thanks for your reflections, Logan. I think football is a great example of team effectiveness. Offensive players must learn quickly to work together to meet the goal. Often, depending on the coaching styles, a quarterback may call an audible and adapt the play based on what he sees. In football, sometimes the goal is only seen as winning the game. I like how you mention other milestones, such as getting the First Down. I remember for a long time a few years ago, Brett Favre had written "check downs" on his wrist to ensure that he was focused on meeting the milestone, so he could help his team getting the scores for the ultimate goal.
Your experience in football will help you tremendously in the housing industry. I think your dad's advice is really important. My husband and I hired an organization to come in and design and develop our patio. A team of subcontractors did the work, but did not reflect the professionalism of the owner or the organization. It was embarrassing for them. Sounds like your career is off to great start. Keeping listening to your dad; sounds like he provides great advice.
There is really no "I" in a team. It is very important that each member stays motivated. Motivation is what keeps them going and striving hard to achieve the team's goals.
Hence, it very important that the leader himself is well-motivated. He sets as an example to the members. He's the one who can provide coaching and motivation to the members. He has the most influence among them, so he himself must be highly motivated so that the other members may get influenced.

Huge info collection --
There really is no "I" in team. A team must work together to be able to achieve their goals. They must have effective communication for their work to be consistent. Members must improve their communication skills.
Having good communication skills help the members work together as a team. With constant communication and proper coordination, they can be effective as a team. This also help them develop or strengthen their relationships with each other.
Leadership is really important in a team. A leader should serve as a model of his team members. He should get along with the members very well and stay positive all the time.
As the one who guides the team, the leader should show positivity towards the team. The sedona method is one effective way to help you stay positive by gaining emotional wellness. This will motivate the team and give them more determination in succeeding the team's goals.
