Bad teams dont make good organisations

05 September 2013, 07:27

 How many of us have used the word, I am a team player either in an interview, with aims of impressing a client or in genuine believe that you are one.  How many of us have mentioned that we want to contribute positively to our organizations and that we care about the organizational productivity.

I know for a fact that everyone wants their organization to prosper, that everyone wants to be productive and competitive in their respective roles and that we all want the best for ourselves but unfortunately that’s not all to making functional, competitive and winning organizations. If you can’t participate positively, constructively and peacefully in a team, you are subsequently very much contributing to negative, destructive and chaotic organizations.

I have in my experience learned that we all think we know what team work is about but we don’t quite understand nor practice the essence of team work. Functional team members want to work with each other, they want to build and understand one another.  They trust each other and want to see each member progressing with excellence in their respective roles. Functional team members listen to each other, they respect each other‘s views and understand that conflict is natural and is nothing more than a desire to change something. Functional team members communicate positively about other team members. Functional team members value each other‘s talents, skills and expertise and acknowledge that they can learn from and teach each other. Functional team members solve problems  not create problems within the organizations. Functional team members understand the core principle of life, that  we coexist and are interdependent. If all the aspect of functional team members are observed only then will we achieve our common goal of immaculate organizations.

Everything in the world is related, you first have to function as a team in your own space, meaning your mind, your heart, soul, and role in the organization has to be on the same axis. Once you have sorted yourself you can interact better with other people, and if we have everyone who has their mind, heart, soul and role in alignment on the same team, remind me again why that team cannot result in a functional and productive organization.

So the next time you have a desire to say I am a team player, really quiz your inner being if you really are one. Remember everything begins with you. And if your can pray for your team members’ health, wealth and peace then you are thee team member of note.
