Teamwork the Key to Success

Teamwork the Key to Success | Managing Highly Performing Work Teams | Scoop.it

Via Daniel Watson
John Bean's insight:

Dan Watson and the article / author are right on - teamwork is a critical ingredient to any business' success.  The 6 team mate type discussion is definitely something to consider. 

 

In essence - this also speaks to the power of true Diversity and Inclusion.  D&I is more of a business imperitive than a social cause - as to ignore D & I is to pay lip service to "team work", and "leaves money on the table".  The article through the 6 team mate types speaks to valuing diversity of opinion, style, and background; and inclusion as valuable to a highly performing team.

There is an old adage,there is no I in team.Unforunately, far too many business owners do not follow that axiom and  run their businesses as despot rulers.Not only ,does this create a negative culture ,it wastes the talents of its employees.

Vincent Picton's curator insight, August 18, 10:07 AM

I do not necessarily agree with this saying, but I feel that teamwork may lead to success faster.

 

It is true that one person may not be able to complete the jobs that five people could due to lack of skills, but if that person was very skilled they may be able to complete the task, it would just take them longer.

 

This is how I felt sitting with the client in the waiting room.

Don't try to build a team in your own image. Aim for a diversity of skills and outlooks on life. You'll challenge yourself by surrounding yourself with strong thinkers-

Think about your role as a librarian and aim to develop these habits.  It will keep us on the cutting edge of transformation.

ASPEL Editor's curator insight, January 14, 5:01 AM

Often times we are faced with the temptation to reach for a fast (and potentially wrongheaded) solution. However, a good strategic leader holds steady, synthesizing information from many sources before developing a viewpoint. If your leader lacks some level of peripheral vision, it can leave your company vulnerable to rivals who detect and act on ambiguous signals. We need strategic leaders who will foster open dialogue, build trust and engage key stakeholders, especially when views diverge. Find out how to become the strategic leader your company needs!

A great business structure is vital to the success of any business. This is an excellent article that provides a great amount of detail about how to have a successful family business. It was very informative and has a lot of great information that every business owner should read. 

Jaymel Dash's curator insight, March 6, 9:08 AM

This articles show ways to make you family owned business a successful one. In this case success is about learning.

J.J. Thomas's curator insight, July 31, 7:24 PM

Family business has a completely different emotional dynamic that people often forget. Children and grandchildren can be used as leverage for getting your point across which is just bad business. The quote "the next generation stand on their shoulders, not in their shoes." is a great one!

There's nothing new or revolutionary here but it's a great reminder of the basic blocking and tackling of managing change that is a continued struggle for many. We like the razzle dazzle and trick plays but sustainable change requires simplicity, consistency, and persistence.

Engagement is core to change and transition - some useful tips here.

greytip's curator insight, October 24, 2013 3:16 AM

With changing times, it is important to adapt new technologies that aligned towards employee engagement. Having an employee portal is one of them. The employee can easily access his data as payslips, leave or claim entitlements, apply for them etc.  http://www.greytip.in/cloud/employee-self-service-portal
