There seem to be a lot of analogies when it comes to ‘teamwork’.
1. TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves More
2. There is no “I” in TEAM.
And of course, there are many, many more.
None of them actually captures the true essence of leading a team or working within a team. That’s likely because you really can’t explain what it takes to succeed as a team with a catch-phrase or a slogan or a creative one-liner.
How do you capture the essence of supporting leadership, taking initiative, coaching new members, taking advice from the experienced, understanding your role as a team member and celebrating group achievements in a one-line phrase? I don’t think you can capture the essence of ‘team’ with a slogan.
However, I do believe that this video is a pretty good analogy and it only takes about three minutes to watch.

Three minutes well spent, I’d say.
