Leverage Your “I” For Better Team Collaboration


There is no “I” in team.

It is a phrase often cited and not attributed to anyone. So, I am going out on a limb to say there is an “I” in team and it is the most critical aspect of a high-performing team.

No, this is not a reference to Michael Jordan’s quote of “there is an “i” in win.”

Common knowledge is that a team of self-focused “I” performers does not make for a high-performing team, because they never become a team. What do I mean that “I” is the most critical aspect?
