Building A Great Team

“The key elements in the art of working together are how to deal with change, how to deal with conflict, and how to reach our potential…the needs of the team are best met when we meet the needs of individuals persons.”

-Max De Pree, founder and CEO, Herman Miller, author of Leadership is an Art

It’s basic human nature that people will always be self-interested when it comes to advancing their professional and economic interests. If you are going to build a great team that works toward common goals you must acknowledge and tap into this simple fact of human motivation. Once you acknowledge this basic truth, you can implement a performance and incentive system that aligns self interest and team interest. Dysfunction occurs when you try to advance one at the expense of the other.
