I was reading an article recently and came across the following beneficial team behaviors:
Tame the email. Sometimes emailing doesn't make sense to communicate effectively and efficiently. Pick up the phone. It avoids misunderstandings.
Tribalism is alive so kill it. Tribalism is what happens when barriers create destructive, competitive behavior. Keep the communication flowing.
Discipline matters more than talent. A strong work ethic can outperform pure talent.
Bring the passion. Ask yourself, What can I do to make my work better?
Learn to lose like a kid. Whatever the disappointment is, mourn it, then move on.
Respect everything. The work, the client, each other.
