    Almost everyone works as part of a team, even if it's not called that. A team is a group of people working towards similiar or the same goals, where the team members are inter-dependent and need each other to achieve those common goals. These days, there's probably not a single workplace, where employees don't depend on each other in some way. This makes "team" much more than a buzz word. Teams and teamwork reflect the realities of getting things done.

    The problem is that while we are social creatures, we aren't necessarily skilled in working in such an inter-dependent world. Particularly in the Western world, we work within a highly individually based culture that focuses on INDIVIDUAL wins, and collective failures, with a tendency to look to other team mates when it comes to evaluating how our teams are doing. That doesn't work. A team wins AND loses based on the entire team. If we want better teams, and want to be better team members, we need to stop looking at what others are doing, and look to ourselves -- how we contribute to the teams we are in. Start from YOU.

    That's where this unique helpcard comes in.

    The Point: We all have a tendency to look at other team members when the best place to start improving our teams is with ourselves. After all, our own attitudes, words and actions are really the only things that are directly under our control. It's not possible to improve teams by trying to force others to do things differently.

    Contributing To Your Team Helpcard is an excellent starting point to:

    • Reassess how you, personally, can be a super-contributor to your team's success.
    • Begin the process of discussing how a team can apply the techniques on this card -- ideal if each team members has a copy of the card (our licensing program allows you to save up to 75% on multiple copies.
    • Help other teams develop more effectively, if you are a team leader, manager or human resources professional.
