It's Tom Heck with your May 1, 2007 edition of the TeachMeTeamwork.com Teamwork Ideas e-Newsletter.
I recently watched a documentary I MUST tell you about. It's entitled The Heart of the Game and was shot over the course of 6 years. The film follows a college tax professor who has a side job coaching a high school girls basketball team in Seattle, WA. This true story is almost too amazing. A team of Hollywood writers couldn't have come up with a story as good as this. If you work with teams you must watch this movie. If you work with kids you must watch this movie.
And while I'm on a roll with movies - - another must see film is "Freedom Writers" which is a Hollywood movie based on the true story of a truly wonderful high school teacher.
In each of these movies you'll see people who hold themselves and their teams to very high standards. Standards is what this week's TeleSeminar is all about (read more below).
Standards refer to the behavior and actions to which you are willing to hold yourself accountable. Simply put, your standards are how you’ve chosen to behave. A team can only produce quality goods and services in a sustainable way when team members have high personal Standards.
