Leading Teams: Developing the Team and its Culture

Henry Ford once said that coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. Mr. Ford knew the importance of teamwork. Ask anyone who has worked in a project or team environment, and he will tell you that team dynamics make a huge difference in terms of getting work done and in the whole working environment. A positive, constructive atmosphere can keep team members motivated and productive, while a negative atmosphere can have the opposite effect.
