â€œTeamwork is a make or break situation. Either you help make it or the lack of it will break youâ€. (Be the Best Possible, 2001, p1)
When choosing team members, you ask yourself â€œWho would the best team players be?â€ Teams need strong team players to perform well. After reviewing Team A charter I believe we have found that team!
Working on teams can be rewarding, but at times it can be difficult and downright frustrating. If there are poor communicators on your team, you may often feel left in the dark, confused or misunderstood. To create a successful team, effective communication methods are necessary for both team members and leaders. Team A takes great pride in having good communication and time management skills.

To reach this goal, we must be active participants and feel comfortable talking with one another. We share our ideas, information and experience. Team A knows the success of this team lies on treating fellow team members with courtesy and consideration- not just some of the time but consistently. We do believe in everyone giving it 100% commitment in order for there to be success. Strong team players care about their work, the team, and the teamâ€™s work. They bring this to the table with every
assignment. They want to give a good effort, and they want other team members to do the same.
Incorporating the personality, listening and trust skill assessments was a big help. It helped me get to know my team members on a different level. So of us are great listeners but our trust level is low. Then there are others whose trust level is high and listening is low. My trust level is low. I never go into a situation giving an individual complete trust. It must stem from years of putting that hope and trust into someone to later have it blow up in my face. You have to earn trust in my book. My listening skills are average. I will give you my undivided attention out of respect. However, it is solely up to you to keep it. I am guilt of drifting off especially if the topic/lecture is uninteresting. My fellow team members have shared the same concern.
Team A can be an affect team as long as we have that commitment to succeed and look beyond our own piece of the work and care about the teamâ€™s overall work. In the end, our commitment is about winning- not in the sports sense of beating your opponent but about seeing the team succeed and knowing we have contributed to this success. Winning as a team is one of the great motivators of employee performance. Good players have and show this motivation.
