What defines Team Building and Leadership?
"In sport or in business or within the community, a "team" is defined as a group of people who collaborate or work together toward a common goal. A team implies synergy, meaning the whole is greater than the sum of their parts. The essence of a team is a common commitment, because without it, the members are simply a group of individuals."**
Building a Team would simply be the act of improving and maximizing these characteristics.
And what is Leadership? Leadership is an individual's or organization's ability to inspire confidence and influence people to act in a coordinated fashion in a common direction or with a shared focus.
Thus, it is easy to see the obvious link between leaders and teams.
What is one thing that all leaders have in common?
Are they all selfless and striving to improve the common good?
hmmmm, Hitler, Napolean, Stalin...?
But weren't these guys all excellent public and motivational speakers?
So are they all charismatic?
Is Bill Gates charismatic? I wouldn't say so, but would I follow him?...
Well then maybe it's competence that defines a leader?
"The only way we can win is to leave before the job is done." --George W. Bush, Greeley, Colo., Nov. 4, 2006
Okay, maybe that's not it either...
But there is one thing that ABSOLUTELY all leaders have in common...
THEY ALL HAVE FOLLOWERS!
And if these followers are all united together to follow a single purpose, then I would certainly call this group of followers a team.
