Teamwork

A team can be defined as “a number of persons associated in some joint action”. Most of us have been on a team of some kind during our lifetime. Weather it’s a sports team or a team related to a business activity, the performance of the team is determined by the cumulative efforts of its’ individual members.

Theory is defined as “a coherent group of tested general propositions, commonly regarded as correct, that can be used as principles of explanation for a class of phenomena”.

I have a doctrine called “The Championship Team Theory”. In essence, any team is composed of individuals with varying skills. In sports, a team usually has one or two standout players. These players possess athletic abilities superior to the other members of the team. These highly talented individuals are members of both winning and losing teams. So, what is the differentiator between the two?

“The Championship Team Theory” supposes that a championship team is a winner because the highly talented members of the team inspire the less talented members to step up and play at a much higher level than imagined. So, all team members are performing at or above peak level.

Sports or business, the performance of the “team” is critical to achieving success and outscoring the competition.
