Code of Honor
Teamwork offers the associates the opportunity to become more familiar with each other and learn how best to work together. When people work together, they grow individually as well. If you want to grow personally, you need to be able to work well in a team! Teamwork also allows far more to be accomplished. One way that teamwork is sometimes described is as "one plus one equals three."
A group of dedicated associates can accomplish far more than a single, very talented one.
Additionally, individual weaknesses can be minimized through the efforts of the team. You may be strong in an area where another employee is weak and vice versa. When you work together, you each can work out of your strengths rather than trying to compensate for your weaknesses. Also, teams build on each other's ideas and share in completing assignments together. There are many pairs of eyes to look at the work, which decreases the potential for errors and mistakes.
Before you can build a team, you must be a leader. This isn’t about who’s in charge. Rather, it means that you lead the way in building trust and respect between yourself and the team members! Having that in mind, our associates sat down several years back and wrote out our very own Team ILN Code of Honor.
"Coming together is a beginning,
Keeping together is a progress,
Working together is a success."
In our individualistic culture, it can be easy to downplay the necessity of teamwork. This is a critical mistake. The importance of teamwork at work is vital to the success of any relationship, company, or organization.
Why? Several reasons.
