The team working together is not equal to teamwork. Do you agree?
Well, we do. For a group of people to successfully work together, they need to learn some teamwork secrets, otherwise, they will fail. And here the leader-manager role kicks in. It does not matter how passionate, driven and talented the leader is, the success lies in an ability to inspire the team and help them discover the beauty of teamwork.
How to do that? Talking is the key. But keep in mind, that meetings are the no-no. Everybody hates them, especially if they are long. We offer you to make a short (10-20minutes) and energizing morning session, to inspire your time. For starters, share a quote to drive their motivation and you can do the same to end it with a nice tone. To help you, we prepared a list of 15 team-inspiring quotes, from the world greatest leaders
