Teamwork is one of the most underrated skills in the business world. If you have a staff where everyone plays a specific role without jealousy or spite, your business is much more likely to be successful.
The importance of teamwork came to the front of my mind recently as I watched our hometown Dayton Flyers make a Cinderella run to Elite 8 in the NCAA Tournament. Dayton, an 11 seed from a mid-major conference, utilized excellent teamwork to upset more talented teams like Ohio State and Syracuse.
It was clear to me that everyone on that team had accepted his role in order to achieve amazing team goals. This can be easily translated to the business world.
If everyone from your administrative staff to your CEO have the same team goals in mind, your business is more likely to be a success. Selflessness is required to be a good team member. Do your job, no matter the level of the corporate ladder, and it will pay off tenfold.
