Raising the Bar for Teamwork

If you are committed to accomplishing extraordinary results, chances are good that you will need to collaborate with others.

Your ideas and dedication, no matter how wonderful they might be, will never be enough by themselves. It takes a village.

Most people's experience of being on a team is less than ideal, filled with frustration, power struggles, and the belief that it's just not worth the effort.

OK. Those days are over. No matter how disappointing your experience of teamwork may have been in the past, it's never too late to turn things around. And it all begins with AWARENESS -- tuning into what's actually going on with your team.

Intrigued? If so, click here and take Heart of the Matter's online TEAM REALITY CHECK poll. In two weeks, I'll post the results here -- a way to spark new possibilities about what you and the rest of us can do differently to radically increase the effectiveness of our teams.

I can't answer your questionnaire right now because I don't have a team project. I am, however, creating a team project for the internet and plan to use your questionnaire in helping me to create guidelines for the development and functionality of the new project. Thanks.

it's rather a question I'd like to put.But I wonder if this is the right place to do so.I notice there are short excerpts of messages for mobile phones, ipods,etc..But they are in English.Is it possible to have them translated in French? If yes,I'll be interested to help in West Africa,namely Côte d'Ivoire. And if there some very beautiful leaflets presenting the message whether in English or french could you guide me towards them.Thanks.

Togba: I have no clue what the short excerpts of messages for mobile phones and ipods are about. Those are not embedded in this blog. If you want more info about beautiful leaflets presenting M's message in English or French, go to If you are not yet a member of that site, you will need to register. I am sure there is good info there about finding leaflets in English and French.
