Along with football and other team sports come talk of who's the most valuable player, the MVP. That player is the usually the star quarterback, running back or, occasionally, a defensive player.
It's the player fans believe that without him, the team couldn't win. Of course, all of that talk flies in the face of teamwork. How?
On our teams at work, we all have an important role to play. We all bring value to our job. It's never about just one person. As leaders, we need to communicate that.
That value makes your organization succeed and adds to your personal and professional success. And that's the attitude we need to bring to work every day.
What we do matters.
