Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishment toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. ~Andrew Carnegie
As we move into a new business year many organizations take a look at teams and what they want to create in the year ahead. It is certainly a popular time of year for planning and team building. How effective are your teams? What is the link between the corporate goals and individual contribution? How clear are team-members about this link?
Last year, we put a focus on leadership here at the blog. Most leaders recognize that their successes are linked to their teams successes. So this year, we are going to continue to focus on the interplay between teams and leadership.
I look forward to much dialogue throughout the year on teams and leadership. If there are some focus areas or questions you have that you'd like spotlighted on the blog this year, please drop me an email.
In the meantime, please check out the team and leadership tags to see what I've said/written over the past few years!
Have a great week,
