At Team Office, we believe “great teams deserve great workplaces.” It takes a number of factors to build a great team, but at the very core of great players and great teams is how they see themselves.
If leaders don’t believe in themselves and the team’s ability to accomplish their mission, success will be impossible. People and teams can never outperform their self-image. The market doesn’t determine your value or your price. You determine your value and if you’re in a leadership position, you also determine the value and ultimately the success or failure of your team.
We started Team Office in 1999 and we believed we could bring great value to office furniture buyers. We believed in sharing our knowledge, experience and resources to help our clients make decisions that were best for their business. We also believed we could save them time and money when they purchased furniture.
As we built our team, we shared that belief with our people and they shared it with their clients. In the beginning, it was a difficult thing to get people with no industry experience to believe in their own ability to learn new skills and reach their goals. We often believed in our team more than they believed in themselves.
Over time, our team started to believe and in some cases, they started to believe in themselves even more than we did!
A positive self-image comes easier for some than others, but it is absolutely essential to your success and the success of those around you.
