There is much talk and reading material on working in a positive team environment and the importance of a healthy team for the business. A team that works well together affects the bottom line of a business. Clients feel first-hand when the team members are treating them in a happy, friendly way. It projects in employees’ attitudes when they are happy in their work environment. Some people may say, “But this only works when you are working together in an office space or store and not remotely.” Team building and a positive team environment work in a remote environment just as well.
When one of us is prevented from performing their work due to for example a crashed computer hard drive or an emergency room visit, we jump right in and take over from where the team member has left off so that the work still gets done and our client does not even notice that another team member worked on their matter.
The strong moral and spiritual support within our team is powerful. When one of us deals with a personal, difficult situation, the others provide support through listening, advice, prayers, and positive thoughts. It is a wonderful feeling to know that we can count on each other, no matter what happens.
As a strong team, we know we can overcome challenges much easier than a weak team could. Together, we seek new opportunities, and we learn together, always sharing our knowledge with each other. We go through thick and thin, through good and bad times. We live and breathe our motto that People First begins and ends with people. That includes our clients and business partners and our immediate team members. And we work in a fully remote work environment.
How do you feel about your team? Do you have each other’s back?
