FOCUS ON COLLECTIVE RESULTS
Be quick to point out the contributions and achievements of others
Confirm that the team’s priorities are in order by acknowledging the contributions of your peers. As a leader, encourage everyone on your team to regularly acknowledge and congratulate one another for a job well done.
Food for Thought:
A sense of camaraderie and team spirit goes a long way when it comes to achieving results. In highly successful teams, the group’s collective success far outweighs the value placed on the achievement of any individual. More powerful together than alone…so goes the ultimate reason why teamwork matters.
