Top Team Building Quotes

Team Building Quotes By Tony Dovale

Team Building Quotes By Tony Dovale

ReThink Training: The best process of learning is on the job, just-in-time, "nibble-knowledge" to incrementally transform mindsets and skillsets irrevocably. — Tony Dovale

Team Building Quotes By Jo Kadlecek

What I hadn't expected was to be blindsided by a history lesson that betrayed every hard-won experience I'd had as a player and now a coach at the same school I'd attended. . . Whoever was responsible for sending a championship team into virtual obscurity was either a serious egomaniac or just plain mean. It stung.

After all, wasn't the story told at today's funeral the stuff of legacies? Of school lore passed on to the next class, and the next, building institutional pride as well as magical identities that made every kid in the state want to play there? — Jo Kadlecek

Team Building Quotes By Mitch Lasky

I've witnessed first hand the impact the Benchmark team has had on new ventures, and I believe their commitment to the entrepreneur and dedication to building companies of lasting value really set the firm apart. — Mitch Lasky

Team Building Quotes By Sheryl Sandberg

Endless data show that diverse teams make better decisions. We are building products that people with very diverse backgrounds use, and I think we all want our company makeup to reflect the makeup of the people who use our products. That's not true of any industry really, and we have a long way to go. — Sheryl Sandberg

Team Building Quotes By Don Meyer

Our goal as a team is to keep playing as a group for as long as we can because you will never have that team again. It is like a dying limb, you have to prune it off and let another one grow in its place. That is the way you have to do it, but it still hurts losing these guys and that team because they and you have put so much effort into building a team. Even if you win that last game (and a national championship), it hurts badly because the players know they will never have that same special group of guys together on the same team again. Somebody always goes and somebody new always comes in. — Don Meyer

Team Building Quotes By D.A. Wallach

The reason companies work is because you're able to get a lot of people doing the work; it's not because of this visionary. Steve Jobs didn't make Apple; it was a bunch of people. The building of the right team is an art in and of its own right. — D.A. Wallach

Team Building Quotes By Edgar H Schein

we know intuitively and from experience that we work better in a complex interdependent task with someone we know and trust, but we are not prepared to spend the effort, time, and money to ensure that such relationships are built. We value such relationships when they are built as part of the work itself, as in military operations where soldiers form intense personal relationships with their buddies. We admire the loyalty to each other and the heroism that is displayed on behalf of someone with whom one has a relationship, but when we see such deep relationships in a business organization, we consider it unusual. And programs for team building are often the first things cut in the budget when cost issues arise. The — Edgar H Schein

Team Building Quotes By Bill Belichick

I think that's part of building your team is trying to anticipate where your team is going and to a certain extent where, especially defensively because you have to react to what they put on the field. Defensively you have to be able to defend those things. — Bill Belichick

Team Building Quotes By Sheryl Sandberg

The U.S. Census Bureau considers mothers the "designated parent," even when both parents are present in the home. When mothers care for their children, it's "parenting," but when fathers care for their children, the government deems it a "child care arrangement." I have even heard a few men say that they are heading home to "babysit" for their children. I have never heard a woman refer to taking care of her own children as "babysitting." A friend of mine ran a team-building exercise during a company retreat where people were asked to fill in their hobbies. Half of the men in the group listed "their children" as hobbies. A hobby? For most mothers, kids are not a hobby. Showering is a hobby. — Sheryl Sandberg

Team Building Quotes By Henry David Thoreau

Building a team is just the beginning, keeping it together means progress and working together is success. — Henry David Thoreau

Team Building Quotes By Sunday Adelaja

When building your team look for people who are disciplined even before they came to the Lord. — Sunday Adelaja

Team Building Quotes By Juelz Santana

I respect everything H3 has already accomplished and respect everything he's trying to get done. We're building a real HOME for the Hip Hop generation complete with all the things we love to do. But it's really about creating educational opportunity and good jobs and that's where Team H3 will prove to be unbeatable. — Juelz Santana

Team Building Quotes By Henrik Fisker

The biggest challenge is to build the team and start the company, while hiring people, raising money, building a brand which has no history, all at the same time. You're doing a lot of things that in an established company are already done. — Henrik Fisker

Team Building Quotes By Allan Fromme

People have been known to achieve more as a result of working with others than against them. — Allan Fromme

Team Building Quotes By Mark Vonnegut

Introverts almost never cause me trouble and are usually much better at what they do than extroverts. Extroverts are too busy slapping one another on the back, team building, and making fun of introverts to get much done. Extroverts are amazed and baffled by how much some introverts get done and assume that they, the extroverts, are somehow responsible. — Mark Vonnegut

Team Building Quotes By Peter F. Drucker

Entrepreneurial management in the new venture has four requirements: It requires, first, a focus on the market. It requires, second, financial foresight, and especially planning for cash flow and capital needs ahead. It requires, third, building a top management team long before the new venture actually needs one and long before it can actually afford one. And finally, it requires of the founding entrepreneur a decision in respect to his or her own role, area of work, and relationships. — Peter F. Drucker

Team Building Quotes By Jake Byrne

Linked together as a team with one goal, we soon realized we were only as strong as our weakest link. But did we condemn the weaker
member? That wouldn't serve any purpose. Instead, the stronger guys responded by carrying more weight than the weaker teammate. Encouragement was key in reaching the top of the stadium, standing as one.
Sometimes one person on your team may not be as strong as another. Strengths usually differ. Likewise, in an encounter with another, someone may have a different set of beliefs or ideas.To accomplish any goal, embracing the strengths and weaknesses of each member and compensating where necessary are the best ways to make it to the top. — Jake Byrne

Team Building Quotes By Ike Barinholtz

I used to teach improv courses in Amsterdam where we would do team-building exercises, and they can go south very quickly. — Ike Barinholtz

Team Building Quotes By Ziad K. Abdelnour

I strongly believe in the fact
that there's still plenty of money and plenty of private equity capital
available around the globe. What are in short supply are great entrepreneurs
and great teams. A trading opportunity or a company's biggest
challenge is and has always been the team behind it. There's enormous
change under way in every facet of the world. Some is technology
driven, some is market driven. All that change creates unprecedented
opportunity, but to take full advantage of such opportunities I mostly
focus on the team. The right teams and right people behind those
opportunities always win. There is no secret sauce. Trading and investing
has, in my experience, boiled down to building relationships and
exchanging value. It consists of striking the right balance between
backing and interacting with the right teams with the right business
model at the right time and with the right amount of money. — Ziad K. Abdelnour

Team Building Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Happy we do our work. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Team Building Quotes By Eben Alexander

There is no team without the individual members; an individual can never be a team. — Michael Joling

Team Building Quotes By Meredith Belbin

Do you want a collection of brilliant minds or a brilliant collection of minds? — Meredith Belbin

Team Building Quotes By Hope Powell

I think you can learn lots of skills playing football. Team building is one. You also learn how to solve problems within your team.

It gives you skills that you may not appreciate at the time. — Hope Powell

a mentoring program that pairs new managers with experienced ones. A key facet of this program is that mentors and mentees work together for an extended period of time - eight months.

Team Building Quotes By James Patterson

Mike, you ready? he said. The coliseum-like, bowl-shaped CompStat conference room behind him was a pen pusher's paradise, I knew. It was a place where innovative computer-model formats were used to illuminate detailed processes that were compared for effectiveness of indices of performance before implementations of flexible tactics to achieve the development of comprehensive solutions were discussed in a team-building environment. In plain English, it was a bureaucratic version of hell on earth. — James Patterson

Team Building Quotes By Tony Dovale

Team Building Quotes By Jane Ripley

As a leader, it's your job to get everyone to share what they know. — Jane Ripley

Team Building Quotes By Andy Stanley

Leaders who carry unresolved guilt are forced to hide a part of themselves from those to whom they are closest. They have a secret. They are forced to expend time and energy to ensure that no one finds them out. They know they are not completely trustworthy. Often they assume no one else is either. Guilty leaders have a difficult time trusting. Consequently, guilty leaders have a difficult time building teams. — Andy Stanley

Team Building Quotes By Rob Thurman

Team Building Quotes By Linda Robinson

We email, teleconference, webinar, but we are not in the room with the people. It is a false connectedness - artificial team-building. It's like eating the menu instead of the food. — Linda Robinson

Team Building Quotes By Fred Wilson

Building product is not about having a large team to manage. It is about having a small team with the right people on it. — Fred Wilson

Team Building Quotes By Brian Houston

Leaders goal: Avoid building around only ONE person's ministry gifting. Longevity is in a team, not an individual! — Brian Houston

Team Building Quotes By Mandi Walls

Traditionally siloed technical teams interact through complex ticketing systems and ritualistic request procedures, which may require director-level intervention. A team taking a more DevOps approach talks about the product throughout its lifecycle, discussing requirements, features, schedules, resources, and whatever else might come up. The focus is on the product, not building fiefdoms and amassing political power. — Mandi Walls

Team Building Quotes By Tony Dovale

Rethink Your Success Mindset: At the end of your life, the only things that really matter ... are matters of your heart. — Tony Dovale

Team Building Quotes By Mike Krzyzewski

Visualize a wagon wheel as a complete team. A leader might be the hub of the wheel at the center. Now suppose the spokes are the connecting relationships the leader is building with people on the outer rim of the wheel. If the hub is removed, then the entire wheel collapses. In a situation like that, if a team loses the leader, the entire team collapses. — Mike Krzyzewski

Team Building Quotes By Jamie Oliver

I think there are definitely two types of student: the academic kids and the 50% who fail. It's very clear to see - it's fact. We're not doing enough for those who fail; they need a more physical, tactile approach, involving people skills, team-building, problem-solving, building things. — Jamie Oliver

Team Building Quotes By Anonymous

In 2009, School Administrator magazine asked Hall to relate her "biggest blooper." It was, she said, "when a staff member planned a team-building exercise at our senior team retreat to play miniature golf at day's end, only to find out it was actually 18 holes of regular night golf. Most of us were not golfers and were not happy with the surprise." Her blunder, in other words, was leaving the details in the hands of an underling. — Anonymous

Team Building Quotes By Stephen Covey

How does humility manifest itself in leadership and in life?

Team Building Quotes By Don Kardong

Team Building Quotes By Noam Chomsky

When I was in high school I asked myself at one point: "Why do I care if my high school's team wins the football game? I don't know anybody on the team, they have nothing to do with me ... why am I here and applaud? It does not make any sense." But the point is, it does make sense: It's a way of building up irrational attitudes of submission to authority and group cohesion behind leadership elements. In fact it's training in irrational jingoism. That's also a feature of competitive sports. — Noam Chomsky

Team Building Quotes By Casey Stengel

Gettin' good players is easy. Gettin' 'em to play together is the hard part. — Casey Stengel

Team Building Quotes By Will Self

Regard yourself as a small corporation of one. Take yourself off on team-building exercises (long walks).

The following day you will feel a deep and cohering sense of embarrassment. — Will Self

Building this kind of team is the core of an agile project leader's job. — Jim Highsmith

Create a CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM. Want to be LEGENDARY? Create a LEGENDARY TEAM! — Shay Dawkins

Team Building Quotes By Maureen F. McHugh

Wuxi Engineering Complex wasn't detailed by a team, it was detailed by one woman, using, of course, feedback from the departments that would be using the building." I gape. "Exactly," she says, smiling. "A team would not have constructed the building as a unit, but as a series of connected, but compromised and adjusted, ideas." "It can't be done. It had to have taken years." "It did take over two years, but it can be done. — Maureen F. McHugh

Team Building Quotes By Max McKeown

Strategy is not a solo sport, even if you're the CEO. — Max McKeown

Team Building Quotes By John Wooden

Many building custodians across the country would tell you that UCLA left the shower and dressing room the cleanest of any team. We picked up all the tape, never there soap on the shower floor for someone to slip on, made sure all the showers were turned off and all towels were accounted for. The towels were always deposited in a receptacle, if there was one, or stacked nearly near the door. It seems to me that this is everyone's responsibility-not just the mangers's. Furthermore, I believe it is a form of discipline that should be a way of life, not to please some building custodian, but as an expression of courtesy and politeness that each of us owes to his follow-man. These little things establish a spirit of togetherness and consideration that help unite the team into a solid unit. — John Wooden

Team Building Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Good team and network promotes amazing results. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Team Building Quotes By Jonathan Maberry

As of this moment there's the police department way, the federal law enforcement way, the military way ... and my way. If you want me to function at my best then you're going to have to accept that I'm going to have to make up some of my own rules. I don't know enough about your playbook and, quite frankly, I don't like the way you operate. If I'm not a cop anymore then I'm something else, something new. Okay, then from here on out I'll decide what that is; and that includes building, shaping, and leading my team. My team, my rules. — Jonathan Maberry

Team Building Quotes By Marlene Caroselli

The team developer realizes that at times the leadership 'torch' must be passed on to others. This empowerment of others serves a dual purpose; it helps them hone their own team-building skills and it brings a fresh approach, perhaps even a special expertise, to the group's efforts. — Marlene Caroselli

Team Building Quotes By Thomas Gordon

Competition and rivalry between the members of a group are the antithesis of the cooperation and team play needed in an effective management group. This is why team building is an empty abstraction for a group whose leader controls with power. — Thomas Gordon

Team Building Quotes By Dwight D. Eisenhower

Team Building Quotes By Abhishek Bachchan

When I was in school, sport was given utmost importance. I think it's fantastic for character building, for team playing, and I think it's a great profile for a nation. One in every six people on Earth is an Indian, and I look forward to the day when we can compete with the heavyweights of the sporting world and do well in the medal tally. — Abhishek Bachchan

Team Building Quotes By Eric Schmidt

Team Building Quotes By Tony DiCicco

Chemistry is a contribution that teammates make to each other, but it's also something a coach can create or facilitate. — Tony DiCicco
