We have all heard the expression “There is no ‘I’ in Team.” The purpose of this saying is to focus people on the importance of teamwork and working together to accomplish a goal. It is meant to reenforce the concept that more can be accomplished working as a group than as a number of individuals. At this point you might be thinking that this blog is about teamwork. In fact, it is not. A future blog post will be, but not today’s.
This blog is about you. It is about me. It is about our roles and responsibilities as individuals.
We could go on at length with this list but I am sure you are starting to get the point. As students, trainers, learners, teachers, leaders, coaches and the many other roles we play in our life there is a powerful aspect of personal accountability and responsibility that is often over looked.
