“Team members that love and appreciate each other enhance their chemistry, grit, and performance.” – Jon Gordon, You Win in the Locker Room First
In almost every facet of our lives we achieve more together . . . we are stronger in teams than we are alone. This isn’t new . . . going back to the 3rd century BCE as shared in Ecclesiastes, “Two are better off than one, because together they can work more effectively. If one of them falls down, the other can help him up.”
The chemistry, the culture of any organization is created by the team: by the willingness to work together, to serve with shared vision and purposed and to commit to the team leads to more success and greater performance.
One of our goals – part of our values as a district – is to provide young people the life skills to work in teams. Life isn’t about competing against others; it is about being better each and every day. Life is about helping each other up.
