Teamwork : the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

Teamwork : the hare and the tortoise - retold Good old lessons in teamwork from an age-old fable

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold Once upon a time a tortoise and a hare had an argument about who was faster. . . .

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold They decided to settle the argument with a race. They agreed on a route and started off the race. . .

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The hare shot ahead and ran briskly for some time. Then seeing that he was far ahead of the tortoise, he thought he'd sit under a tree for some time and relax before continuing the race. . .

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold He sat under the tree and soon fell asleep. . .

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The tortoise plodding on overtook him and soon finished the race, emerging as the undisputed champ. . .

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The hare woke up and realized that he'd lost the race.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The moral of the story is that slow and steady wins the race. This is the version of the story that we've all grown up with.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The story continues …

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The hare was disappointed at losing the race and he did some soul-searching (failure analysis). He realized that he'd lost the race only because he had been overconfident, careless and lax. If he had not taken things for granted, there's no way the tortoise could have beaten him.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold So he challenged the tortoise to another race. The tortoise agreed.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold This time, the hare went all out and ran without stopping from start to finish. He won by several miles.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The moral of the story? Fast and consistent will always beat the slow and steady. If there are two people in an organization, one slow, methodical and reliable, and the other fast and still reliable at what he does, the fast and reliable one will consistently climb the organizational ladder faster than the slow, methodical one. It's good to be slow and steady; but it's better to be fast and reliable.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold But the story doesn't end here …

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The tortoise also did some thinking this time (failure mode and effect analysis !!) , and realized that there's no way he can beat the hare in a race the way it was currently formatted.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold He thought for a while, and then challenged the hare to another race, but on a slightly different route. The hare agreed.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold They started off. In keeping with his self-made commitment to be consistently fast, the hare took off and ran at top speed until he came to a broad river. The finishing line was a couple of kilometers on the other side of the river.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The hare sat there wondering what to do. In the meantime the tortoise trundled along, got into the river, swam to the opposite bank, continued walking and finished the race.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The moral of the story? First identify your core competency and then change the playing field to suit your core competency. In an organization, if you are a good speaker, make sure you create opportunities to give presentations that enable the senior management to notice you. If your strength is analysis, make sure you do some sort of research, make a report and send it upstairs. Working to your strengths will not only get you noticed, but will also create opportunities for growth and advancement.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The story still hasn't ended …

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The hare and the tortoise, by this time, had become pretty good friends and they did some thinking together. Both realized that the last race could have been run much better.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold So they decided to do the last race again, but to run as a team this time.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold They started off, and this time the hare carried the tortoise till the riverbank.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold There, the tortoise took over and swam across with the hare on his back.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold On the opposite bank, the hare again carried the tortoise and they reached the finishing line together. They both felt a greater sense of satisfaction than they'd felt earlier.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold The moral of the story? It's good to be individually brilliant and to have strong core competencies; but unless you're able to work in a team and harness each other's core competencies, you'll always perform below par because there will always be situations at which you'll do poorly and someone else does well. Teamwork is mainly about situational leadership, letting the person with the relevant core competency for a situation take leadership.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold There are more lessons to be learnt from this story. Note that neither the hare nor the tortoise gave up after failures. The hare decided to work harder and put in more effort after his failure. The tortoise changed his strategy because he was already working as hard as he could. In life, when faced with failure, sometimes it is appropriate to work harder and put in more effort. Sometimes it is appropriate to change strategy and try something different. And sometimes it is appropriate to do both. The hare and the tortoise also learnt another vital lesson. When we stop competing against a rival and instead start competing against the situation, we perform far better.

the hare and the tortoise - retold : 

the hare and the tortoise - retold To sum up, the story of the hare and tortoise teaches us many things: Never give up when faced with failure Fast and consistent will always beat slow and steady Work to your competencies Compete against the situation, not against a rival. Pooling resources and working as a team will always beat individual performers

Groups Vs Teams : 

Groups Vs Teams

Team development : 

Team development

Forming : 

Forming This is when a group first gets together. People tend to find out about each other, consider purposes, brainstorm ideas and possible structures for tasks and consider their own roles within the group. This is usually a very sociable time in the life of the group.

Storming : 

Storming As the group begins to settle in and individuals get to know each other, they may start competing for status and role in the group. Disagreements occur and where some members may try to assert strong opinions or leadership tactics, others may withdraw. If tensions are not mutually dealt with at this stage, they tend to disrupt group communication and activity, and most importantly, mutual respect for the roles of members.

Norming : 

Norming After the more tense stage of storming, the group usually begins to settle as members have found a common approach to the task that all agree upon or accept This is where unsettled conflicts can be problematic as they will probably reoccur later. Action plans begin to emerge and people find space to begin working on tasks.

Performing : 

Performing This is the stage when the group achieves optimum efficiency and work gets done. At this stage it is important to know the team work strategies you are working with that will best utilize the expertise of each member. It is also useful be aware of time spent on each task through a log or diary, so that possible conflicts do not reoccur.

Team development : 

Team development

Team mourning : 

Team mourning Having satisfactorily got through the group tasks, if the group has been successful in working together, despite initial tensions and conflicts, we often see members sad to leave each other. This is where mutual respect and achievement is felt most significantly.
