Whenever I work with a team there is always one principle in play that cannot be bent on…commitment.
You can call it showing up, consistency, being there.
While I kinda expect that in a team I’m collaborating with and it feels fairly obvious, I’ve always always gotta check myself first.
Check this out...
“The person who asks, ‘What is the most important contribution I can make to the
performance of this organization?’ asks in effect, ‘What self-development do I need? What
knowledge and skill do I have to acquire to make the contribution I should be making? What
strengths do I have to put to work? What standards do I have to set myself?’” (Drucker)
So, let’s take that example at the beginning.
If I’m expecting commitment in a team, then I gotta train it when I’m not with them so when I am with them, it’s there too.
I can’t expect a team to have a quality if I ain’t defining, discovering and developing it myself.
Same goes for you.
Whether a team, a mate, a class, a teacher, a student etc…
You got the thing you seeking to have displayed in the ‘team’ you collaborating with?
