This is Rēlentless

"The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say 'I.' And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say 'I.' They don't think 'I.' They think 'we'; they think 'team.' They understand their job is to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but 'we' get the credit.... This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done." --Peter F. Drucker

Putting together a group of people and calling them a team, doesn’t make them a team. You can bring people together, but until you get them all working together, toward a common goal, they aren’t a team. Once you get them all working together, you still need a leader. Without a leader who can provide the big picture and coordinate all of the players, you still don’t really have a team. In addition to technical know-how, teams need strong leadership, direction, objectives and accountability if they want to be successful. Our management team understands this, and that is why we, are a Tēam.
