Well, I guess it all depends on who you’re asking. According to www.BusinessDictionary.com (remember when we had to look at that really big book with the really tiny print?), TEAM: a group of people with a full set of complementary skills to complete a task, job, or project; share authority and responsibility for self management; accountable; work toward a common goal; a collection of people with a mutual commitment; greater than the sum of the performance of it’s individual members. Wow. How closely does this match YOUR answer? As a leader in any organization, they are your biggest asset. Invest in them. Know what motivates them. Leverage their strengths and values. Reduce conflict. Enhance your own leadership. Empower them. There IS an “I” in your team, contact me to find out who it is.
How do you define team?

This sounds great. Knowing your own traits and the traits of others can really help a team become better equipted to work harmoniously because there is a higher level of respect for one another. I remember growing up that I thought everyone thought like I did. It was not until I got in to the corporate world that I realized people had different ways of thinking. After having consulting groups come in and share their Team Performance tools did I get a better understanding, tolerance and appreciation for my peers and team members. It truly does make for a better workplace as well as increases revenue and, retains employees longer because they want to work.
I can see the tremendous value of your tool, DISC Personality. having a deeper understanding of a colleague or that that matter a superior, don’t we all have one, will be very beneficial in understanding their behavior and adapting to that behavior to create a cohesive team and harmonious working environment
What I love about DISC is the ability to use it in business and personal relationships. I totally understand my husband and myself in our family dynamic a whole lot better after learning about DISC.
Fantastic idea, the dovetailing approaches of business with personal!
