Over the years I’ve had many people tell me there is no “I” in team. Thanks to Facebook and further exploration I happily refute this claim – there IS an “I” in team. In a recent workshop, we brought even further clarity to this concept:
To enable a team to operate in the high performing space each individual not only needs to “be” high performing, they need to take individual accountability for their performance – completing tasks on time and to the right level of quality; without their leader needing to chase and cajole them into execution of necessary tasks.
This takes high levels of trust and ultimately relies on interdependence within the team as a whole – each person believing in the performance of one another and encouraging each other to “be” at their best!
And I’m certain you’ve noticed that is another “I” – individuals and interdependence!
Courageous leadership unleashes both.
