Essence of Teamwork

Teamwork is that elusive something that transforms low-functioning organizations and teams into truly powerful, high-performance ones. But it is elusive -- how do *you* get there?

The ultimate failure of a team -- that is, when teams fail or underperform it is ultimately because they did not pay attention to the details. There are two important concepts here: Details and Pay Attention .

Executing the details is what makes a high-performance organization.

Paying Attention means that this is conscious process -- its a mental thing not a talent or knowledge thing!

We can look to the world of sports for corraboration on this. In the sports world we hear the same phrases over and over: execute the fundamentals, bear down, concentrate == these are all another way of saying pay attention.

Listen to the champions. When the New England Patriots put together their winning streak last year the post-game intereviews were filled with talk about the details. When they lost and then started winning again, the players comments again focused on 'we just got back to paying attention to the details'.

So if the ultimate failure of a team is a lack of attention to details then the ultimate strategy for creating high-performance teams is get each team member to attend to the details of their jobs.

How, then, do managers and coaches get their team members to attend to the details? More in the next installment.

But during all these years neither of them had visited the other in his country home. Still sniffing, he climbed down to the dusty road-bed.. Everywhere brilliancy, but too often it is joined to cheapness; art, yet art merging swiftly into caricature.. Then she says: 'But you have always had such beautiful eyes.. It is not very difficult to prove that what is now present as intense dread in the dream was once desire, and is now secondary to the repression.. Then catching him by his heels, he dragged him out of the house into the street.. Polly was skipping round the room, I guess, gay as a lark.. And why? Simply to make it possible for him to win.. I reckon to leave you and Zaidee together to talk it out, she said; turning to her daughter, she added, Jest you tell him all, Zaidee, and before the Colonel could rise again, disappeared from the room.. Let us console ourselves with the hope of seeing more of this lady on our return.. The heavy iron shutters were gloomily closed over the windows.. Or, as is more frequently the case, the external stimulus undergoes a new rendering, which leads him to connect it with a repressed desire seeking its realization, and robs him of its reality, and is treated as if it were a part of the psychical matter.. She was reaching up for some brilliantly colored maple leaves, and was entirely unconscious of his presence, especially after she had seen him.. , and analyzed its relations to the day remnants, which in turn may be either wishes, psychic emotions of any other kind, or simply recent impressions.. Thus they reached the town, where Buller bought a hat, Podington dispensed with his bundle, and arrangements were made to bring back the boat.. I happen to know the lady, and may corroborate this by saying that she grudges herself the salmon just as much as my patient grudges herself the caviare.. She was going to market with her cook, who carried the basket.. Simon Wheeler backed me into a corner and blockaded me there with his chair, and then sat down and reeled off the monotonous narrative which follows this paragraph.. But what is it--anything bothering you? Gideon sat gloomily before his mirror.. Ye kin have all ye want...
