The following blog, written by Staff Trainer Mary Palin, was originally posted in the Fall of 2010 and reposted in the Fall of 2012. We think it’s only fitting to bring it back once again.
Here in California, we are collectively overjoyed with the outlook for the San Francisco Giants in the World Series. And the reason they are in it, apart from sheer talent, is something we all “know”, but, too often, take for granted – teamwork.
“I think it’s kind of a lesson in Baseball 101, in some cases humility in that A, we don’t have a superstar and B, we really don’t have a team of stars and C, we’ve got enough talent, whether young or old or experienced with people who have won the World Series and also depth….It’s truly a team that knows that on each given day they’ve each got to do their job and somebody will step up and help us win a game.”
Teamwork. It is defined as cooperation, collaboration, joint effort, and solidarity.
If that sounds familiar, it should.
The Tribes TLC process is defined as a “process that creates a culture…for inclusion, influence, and community…based on cooperation and collaboration.
What a concept!
If this is recognized and acclaimed in something near and dear to all ages and cultures and communities (face it, there are Giants baseball fans everywhere), then why don’t we acknowledge and encourage and support it everywhere?
Like classrooms, staff rooms, and boardrooms.
Check out this site to learn more about the why, what, and how of the Tribes TLC process.
But be sure and save some time to watch some wonderful cooperation, collaboration, joint effort and solidarity in action…starting this week.
