August POWerful Word – TEAMWORK – Week 3

Each one of us brings something special to any team we’re part of or that we join. Everyone has strengths and contributes to the team. What do you think I mean by that? We all have skills that help our teams work better! For example; if one of your teammates has a lot of energy, how can that help the team? What other attributes would you want in a teammate? What is a strength of someone who is on your team- -how do you think that quality can help a team (i.e. positive-> keep morale up even when losing)? Often, people will take on different roles within a team. Someone might be the leader/captain while another person might be the encourager who cheers everyone on when times are tough. Still others take on roles like “the implementer” (the one who gets things done) or the “idea person.” What role do you like to take on- and how can this help?

If you have time: Sometimes people are embarrassed to share their strengths- why? Is it boasting? Why/why not?
