Teamwork Lessons from the Football Field

RL041811For many, football isn’t just a game. It’s a way of life. But, you don’t have to be a die-hard fan to learn a thing or two about life and the importance of team building from this national pastime.

What it Takes to Win at Work
Whether you’re on the field or in the workplace, it takes a team to win. Today’s workplace has a lot of demands waiting to be met. To succeed at the challenges you face, your team has to work together. And that means determining the best plan of action and relying on each other to execute each “play” with drive, passion, and precision. Sure you have leaders calling the shots, but no one can win it alone. You have to work together.

So how’s your team doing? Are your employees riding the bench? Is team spirit waning? As we head into the summer, take time to huddle together to figure out what you’ve done right so far as a team in the first quarter and what you’ll need to do differently for the remainder of the year. When something fails, remember that practice makes perfect. And above all, work hard while remembering to have fun together.
