Key characteristics of a performing team

Thanks to Gary Derbier for this concise summary... a performing team has these characteristics:
  • everyone takes care of themselves
  • everyone fully connects with each other
  • everyone unanimously agrees on one objective and how to achieve it... this unanimous agreement should be so strong that every member of the team believes that this objective is the best real option, right now for reaching both our individual and group goals
  • everyone expects that perfecting the team will perfect the product
Once a person has been part of a performing team, it is hard to enjoy team work without it.
