In Others’ Words: The Teamwork Triad
My youngest daughter’s club volleyball team is heading out for a weekend tournament. Three days of nonstop competition. Three days to see teamwork in action — win or lose –and oh, how we hope for wins!
But I’ve learned watching CJ’s team that a day is successful if the team plays well no matter what the score is at the end of the match. Playing well = communicating + being resilient + encouraging one another on and off the court + never giving up.
Her team has come together. They’re sticking together. And they are working together — doing what it takes to be successful. Showing up for practices and staying in the game at tournaments, whether it’s a day-long one or a weekend-long one.
Because that’s what a team does.
