Successful Teams

I am a huge fan of the TEAM approach to life, so much so that TEAM is one of Eagle’s core values.

If all team members act as team members, helping each other to be successful, then ultimately they ALL win.

If any of them act selfishly then they break the team … and the end result is not good.

I cannot emphasize the importance of this lesson enough …it can take people a lifetime to learn this lesson

Almost every successful person I have studied has talked about the power of GIVING… please don’t take this lightly.

The following is a blog entry by Seth Godin  .

Give and Get

The stability, power and longevity of a tribe is directly related to the way it is treated by its members.

When many of them seek to take, to enrich themselves and to find a loophole or advantage, the group is weakened.

Culture and management are not the same thing–when we strengthen our organization, when we encourage and respect our fellow employees, management follows. Group up, not top down.

Society and government are not the same thing either. The tribe we get is the tribe we build.

I don’t think we can abdicate our responsibilities within a tribe to the leader.

The opportunity is simple: the more each individual gives, the more each of us end up getting.
