Working in a team environment every day should make you realize that you are only as good as the team you have surrounding you. Being in a leadership role, no matter how confident you are, will only take you so far without acknowledging the many people who follow your lead and give their all for that team.
I am fortunate to work with a great group of people. Their true dedication to performing their jobs to the best of their ability makes my job that much easier. Sure we all have days that we would prefer to be anywhere else but the struggles we face, we face together. And that common bond makes us that much stronger of a team.
We face the hardships together, we jump in where we are needed and we all seem to strive for the same goal. Those things alone would be enough of a recipe for success but we are fortunate to enjoy a sense of camaraderie along the way and infuses our day with laughter and a true sense of friendship. Some days are more of a struggle than others to keep our heads above water and come out at the end of the day with a smile on our faces but somehow we bounce back.
I salute my team members – each and every one of them. Your true dedication through a crazy hospitality season is something to be admired and you make it easy for me to come to work every day.
I hope that everyone reading this takes the time to thank the people who contribute to the success of their daily life, whether it be co-workers, friends or family. A team is team regardless of its inception. Take the time to thank the people who live, support or work with you and make sure that their efforts do not go unrecognized. It is the combination of the team effort that measures the height of the level of success.
Well said! I never took credit for anyone’s work. Brought them and their idea to the boss and had them present it with my support and let them get all teh credit.
That’s a great way to let team members know they are appreciated.
And since I got here early, let me be the first to say that while there is no I in team, there is clearly a Me.
I’m sure you have gained the respect of all of your team members for doing that!!
There is also “mate” in team but that is taking the teamwork to a different level. 😉
Wow, companies should hire you to talk at team building events
