The Best Aspects of Being a Part of a Team
You’ve all heard acronym for Team: Together Everyone Achieves More; the phrase: there is no I in Team; and the quote “talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” Michael Jordan.
While our “team” at Relevé is not out to win championships, we are still a team- and a competitive one too! When I joined the team, almost 8 years ago now, I knew it was one I wanted to be a part of. We had creative discussions, we supported each other with our individual strengths to achieve that common goal, and most importantly we had fun. Our team was rewarded when we won clients, supported when our workload was overwhelming at times, and knew we could count on each other to have each other’s backs.
While our team is mostly working remotely now, we still find ways to stay connected, and utilize our strengths to achieve that common goal. Our weekly meetings now include a time to catch up, connect and share as well as find new ways to stay current in our ever-changing industry.
There are many benefits to being a part of a team and I hope each of you have found your “team” to be a part of- so that you can be the better, stronger version of yourself.
