You Are The Team: 6 Simple Ways Teammates Can Go From Good To Great

A book for you, your team and entire organization to improve teamwork by helping members of your team and/or organization(s) to become stronger and more connected and committed team players. To increase the level of teamwork, you must increase the level of the teammate. Great teams are made up of great teammates.

After reading You Are the Team, members of your team and/or in your organization will think differently about how they personally contribute to teamwork.

Inspire and move members of your team to:

  • Work more selflessly by focusing on the team first
  • Honor commitments by doing what they say they will do
  • Be more honest, bold, and direct in discussions, including meetings
  • Take accountability for their performance
  • Proactively seek and embrace feedback from teammates
  • Improve personal gratitude for leaders and teammates
  • Bring more positive energy to the team
  • Refrain from negativity and gossip
  • Compliment more regularly and celebrate successes more frequently
  • Be more respectful and kinder
  • Demonstrate greater empathy and improve understanding
  • Go the extra mile for the team
  • Improve personal focus on goals
  • Bring solutions, not problems
  • Inspire and lead

Would you agree that team members committing and acting on just a few of these concepts would improve connection, collaboration and ultimately teamwork? You Are the Team is a must read for every member of your team if you are serious about upping the level of teamwork.

You Are the Team—6 Simple Ways Teammates Can Go from Good to Great is both an engaging and practical teamwork book. Author Michael Rogers uses a variety of inspiring and entertaining stories to highlight each concept in the book. Thought-provoking introspective questions are found at the end of each section to help readers reflect on how they are currently applying each team concept. The end of the book includes an eye-opening assessment with 32 questions to gauge the overall effectiveness of each member of your team.

You Are the Team–6 Simple Ways Teammates Can Go from Good to Great dramatically improves the way your team works together by changing the heart and mind of every member of your team.

Many leaders struggle with getting members of their team to help and assist each other; to be direct, candid and respectful in their communication; to actively participate in meetings–providing ideas and passionately discussing important topics; to trust each other; to stop their team from engaging in negative talk and even gossip; and to have members of their team take accountability for their job and performance… to name just a few.

You Are the Team–6 Simple Ways Teammates Can Go from Good to Great combats each of these team issues, which stem from what author Michael Rogers calls the “Teammate Me Culture,” which is when members of the team care more about their own needs than the team’s needs and where teamwork fails as a result.

Everyone knows that remarkable teamwork equals remarkable results. That’s why organizations spend so much time and money on team building and team-development activities. However, few teams succeed in improving their teamwork because team members have little commitment to the team or its outcomes.

The sad reality is that many members of teams are performing far below what they are capable of achieving, and consequently, they hold their teams back from being extraordinary.

Author Michael G. Rogers is a former Director of Learning, Performance and Quality for a Fortune 50 company and is currently a lecturer at Southern Utah University in the School of Business. He has over 20 years of experience consulting, speaking, and working with a wide variety of teams and leaders.
