I was reminded time and again this weekend about the concept Team is Everything. This past weekend, I saw a movie about a team of escaped prisoners from Siberia in 1940 who traveled over 4000 miles from Russia to India to seek freedom from oppression and certain death. It was a great example of the amazing power of a collective team’s determination.
Not all survived, sadly, but those that did survive had amazing fortitude and walked with passion and a dream of a peaceful destination. The team worked well together, for the most part, and they leaned on each other when needed. It was another great example, to me, that through the hard work and determination success is possible.
On a lighter note, the MAVs won Sunday night their first NBA Championship. They too demonstrated in their actions and their repeated mantras that TEAM IS EVERYTHING and they won as a team. The messages that we “succeed as a team” are all around us in overt words and action and in silent stealth motions.
Thank you for being part of the Team, representing and building the team in your words and actions. All other leaders should be so lucky to have such a fine example of teamwork.
With the lens of teams you will be able to see some invisible things. Flow, power, and the spirit. Sound spiritual and soft, but you can see it in action whether in the professional sports or in the corporate field. See the power.
