#6 – Being team players will solve a lot of problems.

When you work on problems together, you have the combined strength of your abilities. Between the two of you there are more skills available and you’re likely to get more done and done faster.

You are also more likely to have fewer fights “discussions” if you are teammates taking on a problem together, instead of individuals labeling each other as the problem and finding fault with each other.

Regardless of what the problem is or who it starts with, consider it a team problem and  work together for a solution.

Don’t find fault, find a remedy.  Henry Ford

My husband and I came up with a team name awhile back – “Team Awesome” – and our fort (apartment) is “Fort Kick-Ass.” lol. It really is so important to develop a team approach.
