I’m sure there are many of you who, like me, are spending far more time than usual in front of the TV in the evenings watching the Euro 2012 drama unfold…and just as many of you who can’t wait till its all over and life (& TV schedules) gets back to normal!
The thing that always fascinates about team sports is the emphasis on success through togetherness, the importance of shared drive and determination, and the delicate balance between high levels of motivation whilst not being over-stressed and therefore underperforming.
Teams that really pull together and prize shared success over individual brilliance always outshine and outperform those that don’t. In any team endeavour, be it sport, business, or just life, investing in the team dynamic, the ownership of shared goals and the ‘all for one, one for all’ spirit pays dividends a hundred fold. Just ask any Dutch supporter if they’d trade some of their superstars for a bit more of that!
