Quick Business Advice: Margaret Mead on Teams
Never doubt that a small group
of thoughtful, committed people
can change the world.
Indeed. It is the only thing that ever has.
– Margaret Mead
What’s another word for a “small group of thoughtful people?” A team. Together Everyone Achieves More.
Team performance, however, requires a bit more than just being thoughtful and committed, although that’s a great start. To be great, teams need to perform at the highest level in twenty criteria: Mission & Values; Goals & Objectives; Results Measurement; Roles, Duties and Responsibilities; Meeting Participation; Meeting Productivity; Diversity; Collaboration & Synergy; Fun; Unity; Opinions & Honesty; Harmony & Conflict Resolution; Innovation & Problem-Solving; Decision-Making; Procedures; Efficiency & Accomplishment; Sales & “Customer” Service; Individual Alignment; Contribution; and Motivation & Commitment.
