“ The first meeting was held in the Garden of Eden. Eve called the meeting but hadn’t distributed an agenda. Adam wasn’t prepared to discuss the apple issue. The snake kept interrupting the meeting, playing Devil’s advocate. Jumping to the easiest alternative, a hastily sprung plan was put into action. Today we live with the ramifications of that first ineffective meeting.”
Teamwork is the essence of life. If there’s one thing on which I’m an authority, it’s how to blend the talents and strengths of individuals into a force that becomes greater than the sum of it’s parts. My driving belief is this: Great teamwork is the only way to reach our ultimate moments, to create breakthroughs that define our careers, to fulfill our lives with a sense of lasting significance.
"If the going is tough and the pressure is on; if reserves of strength have been drained and the summit is still not in sight; then the quality to see in a person is neither great strength nor quickness of hand, but rather a resolute mind firmly set on its purpose that refuses to let its body slacken or rest.” - Sir Edmund Hillary
