  11. 11. Teamwork – Pulling Together<br />Rule 10 of 10 for High Performance Teamwork<br />Pull the Weeds<br />“A “weed” is someone who refuses to accept the rules. Weeds make their own rules, undermining team consensus. A weed expects double standards. A weed refuses to share and participate. A weed shifts responsibility to others and rejects accountability. A weed looks upon the rules as an annoyance to getting a job done. <br />Do not be fooled. Weeds seem harmless. They may even blossom from time to time. But a weed cannot be trusted. Beneath the surface, it is doing everything it can to take over your garden.” – John Murphy<br /> “ And then some”<br />
