Teams, Teamwork and Teambuilding

Team is a group of people brought together to accomplish a common purpose

Wikipedia describes Teamwork as “work done by several associates with each doing a part but all subordinating personal prominence to the efficiency of the whole”

Teambuilding improves performance of Teams by enhancing Teamwork.

Wikipedia describes “The overall goals of team building are to increase the teams understanding of team dynamics and improve how the team works together. Unlike working as a group, working as a team incorporates group accountability rather than individual accountability and results in a collective work product.Team building encourages the team approach to working on a project.”

Being part of a Team has many benefits, just two of which is the camaraderie and the amount of fun you can have. Here is a funny video to help you enjoy the Team experience.

Since we are closing in on the end of March Madness and coming down to the Final Four, I thought I would share a few good basketball coaches (as well as football, corporate, and Life Coaches) with not only some amazing teams and records but also some sound advice for you and I to build our own Teams whether in sports, business or right at home.

A few resources to help you build your Teams can be found in the LIFE business. Here are just a few books to help you develop your teams; Team Begins at Home, The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player, Good To Great, Leading with the Heart, Success is a Choice.
