How To Contribute To Your Own Team’s Health Helpcard

Do you want to be part of a better team? It all starts with you!

Ask not what your team can do for you, but ask what you can do for your team, and team magic happens. No doubt you’ve heard the expression: “There’s no ‘I’ in team”, but that’s wrong. When it comes to building a better team, or helping your team succeed, the only way that works is for each team member to LOOK AT WHAT THEY, THEMSELVES can contribute. Start with “I”. How can “I” contribute more effectively? “What things do I need to stop doing that may get in the way of my teammates?”

If you wait to be part of a better team, chances are you’ll wait forever. If you are unhappy with how your team functions, then the only way it’s going to get better is for YOU to start being a better teammate.

You can create the team you want through your own behavior, even if you are not a “leader”. Be the teammate you want to have.
