Teamwork = team work.
On a great team, if one person is struggling, challenged, receiving constructive feedback, or not performing well in any regard, it’s OUR job to help.
Team implies we are one.
Team means I will lock arms with you to win – even when it’s tough.
Especially when it’s tough.
When we’re challenged, we’re vulnerable.
When we’re vulnerable, it’s often hard to ask for help or articulate what help you need.
That’s where the work part of teamwork kicks in.
It’s rarely easy, convenient, or timely; it’s necessary.
Don’t ask what you can do to help, just do it (thanks, Nike).
This is where trust is deepened, and teams are united.
Your turn is coming.
