There is a difference between a team and having a company of co-workers.
People who merely exist together within a company does not equate to being a team.
Teams work together- caring about how each persons job impacts their co-workers. Being a team requires each person paying attention, asking questions, and listening to other employees.
Talking about being a team is a lot easier than actually making it happen. Becoming a team does not happen without effort.
Unique personalities, varied experiences, and diverse backgrounds are what contribute to making a vibrant and effective team.
Creating the team is only one piece of the puzzle- we must then keep it together and we do that by using our company core values as a guide to ensure that all team members are working towards the same goals.
