What was the most productive team/staff you worked with?

Think about your best, most productive team/staff experience.  What defined the team? How many of these factors applied?

– had common goals

– the results were more important than who received the credit

-staff cared about the well-being of each other

-they were friends

-there was humour

– staff worked in and outside their job description

– staff had decision-making power and influence on other decisions

– change was embraced as necessary to meet needs of community

-what the organization was doing was more important than the organization itself

– less rules and more expectations

Is this situation created or does it happen naturally when team members have certain characteristics????
