Me or I, us or we?

The I in TEAM is the A HOLE!One of Eagle’s core values is Team.  It is a very important part of our culture and permeates everything that we do.

That is not an accident … our core values were well researched, discussed, debated and developed.

We wanted a team based environment and here are 10 reasons why …

1.  We wanted our employees to help each other to be successful … not just look out for themselves.

2.  We wanted an atmosphere of collaboration, which is a healthy work environment.

3.  We felt that work is tough enough without having to “battle” your peers every day.

4.  We know that a team of professionals, working together towards common goals can achieve great things.

5.  We wanted our company to be focused on providing the best answers to our clients … not internally focused on “turf wars”.

6.  Teams that are focused on the right things will motivate and challenge each other, in addition to assisting each other … that is powerful!

7.  Superstars can bring real value to teams IF they can be team players … if NOT then we don’t want them!

8.  Any system has challenges … I would sooner find ways to solve the challenges associated with a team environment than the alternative.

9.  I like team players, and I want to work with people I like.

10.  Clients will buy from NICE people.

Our lexicon includes the word “we” … but the word “I” tends to be annoying!
