					How To Create Effective Teams For A Better Life

Most events in life are built on successful teamwork. Families are teams relying on teamwork to
make everybody's life better or easier. Production relies on team to manufacture a worthwhile
commodity and office staff need to work as an effective team to market the items or services that
the company deals in and recover outstanding overdue payments.

Even countries rely on teamwork: a country's civil service and bureaucracy is made up of
thousands of teams from the uppermost cabinet ministers to the team of garbage collectors that
keep our streets clean.

Even if you work on your own, you rely on others to provide your raw materials, keep the
Internet going or to deliver your items by mail. None of us can really work alone any more and
maybe no one ever really could.

When you realize this fact, you ought to look about you to see which teams you are in. A family
team? Probably. A community team? Almost certainly. Do you play a sport? Are you working?

Or looking for a career with the help of a government department? Do you go to school? Even a
class is just a big team. One rowdy student can destroy the concentration of the teacher and the

Outside the microcosm and into the macrocosm, you are a resident of your township and a
citizen of your country and even the world as a whole. Working at building the team is
everyone's responsibility, because an effective team is more successful at attaining its goals
which normally include enriching the members of the team.

Family members can try to pull their weight, endeavor not to be a burden and try to help the
weaker or younger members of the family. They can do their utmost at school or at work, so as
not to become a worry to those who rely on them either for wages or for dreams for the future.
All parents agonize about their children's future.
If you were in a sports team, you would exercise in training sessions so as not to let your team
members down. You would endeavor to stay fit and attempt to score points. You can attempt to
do the same in any team situation. Pull your weight at work and one day the employer will notice
and you will get on faster than the one who merely does enough to keep their post.

The same in your local community, keep your garden tidy. Nobody wants to live next to a junk
yard. Enquire of your elderly neighbours if they require a hand with the shopping or getting to
the GP's especially if the weather is bad. Do not think that politicians have got all the bases
covered. They have not and they are giving up more bases every month.

Take an interest in local politics. Perhaps, you can do it better. Who knows where an interest in
community politics will take you if you work for others and show you care. Too many of us
regular individuals have left politics to the ambitious and greedy and look what they have left us
