I often get asked what defines a great leader and how will we know if a team is working optimally. Much has been written about the former point of leadership, but less about the signs of a great team. Therefore I dedicate this blog to this topic with 3 simple milestones on what great teamwork feels and looks like.
 

Milestone 1: Trust and Respect

A group becomes a team when each member is sure enough of himself and his contribution to praise the skills of the others. ~ Norman Shidle

Oh the blame game… keeping us alive and ticking when something doesn’t go our way. How the drama unfolds with different backdrops, props and cast involved. The director in us framing it just how we want it because we can, because it’s all in our head.
 
There, I said it “It’s all in our head.” Our perception is our reality and how we choose to react or act then often becomes THE reality.
