It’s a Team Sport

25 06 2010

Congratulations to the US World Cup Soccer Team – nice job advancing to the next round!  I’ll admit I’m not the biggest soccer fan in the world, but I am all about cheering for Team USA.  For me it’s kind of like a lot of the sports in the Olympics – I don’t completely understand the rules or the strategy, but I really want us to win – USA!  USA!  USA!

Pardon me for the patriotism, but teamwork is what made this country.  You’ll see teamwork everywhere if you pay attention, and not just in sports:

  • Strangers pushing a stranded driver’s car through an intersection
  • A family cooking a meal together
  • A charity accomplishing a goal

And what of teamwork in business?  What about the success of good teams in the workplace?  Would you rather have “co-workers” and “clients,” or “teammates” and “fans”?

“In the end, all business operations can be reduced to three words: people, product and profits.  Unless you’ve got a good team, you can’t do much with the other two.”  Lee Iacocca

My company is a great team – and it is easy for us to help other companies and groups celebrate their team.  I have always liked when we design shirts to look like sports jerseys.  Whether they conjure visions of a European soccer or a Big League ballclub – this style promotes the identity of a group, the relationship between co-workers and partners, a competitive spirit, and the concept of winning.


The Home Team

Got a favorite team?  Feel free to comment and tell us why they rule.

If your organization is a great team, give them a free plug.

If your charity accomplished a goal, tell us about it.

If your favorite sports team is destined to kick butt this year, let’s hear it.

If you’re talkin’ smack, bring it.

Go team!
