Building a Team Boston Celtic’s Style

In the late fifties and up until the late sixties the Boston Celtic basketball teams won 11 championships from eight were straight. One of the players which later became the coach was Bill Resell. He wrote “We were a team of experts … in any field, our performances were up to our personal excellence and how good we work together … no one had to an effort in order to understand that we have to complete each other… we all tried to find ways to make our combination more purposeful”.

In the late fifties and up until the late sixties the Boston Celtic basketball teams won 11 championships from 8 were straight.  One of the players which later became the coach was Bill Resell. He wrote “We were a team of experts … in any field, our performances were up to our personal excellence and how good we work together … no one had to an effort in order to understand that we have to complete each other… we all tried to find ways to make our combination more purposeful.”

In my eyes this is core concept of team work and employee team spirit. Once you got a purpose and focus among the team members, each one knows his position, what are pros and cons of his fellow team members and there is a common goal. Then you have the base to lead the group to accomplishment because always the level of group intelligence will be larger the sum of its parts.

Ego has an important job in building a team spirit, ego is one of the strongest feelings a person can have. Teams come and go more than once on ego. This is way the coach always asks these players to keep their ego out of the game.

The coach or the manager has and important job in building its team especially in the start. Teams that are always learning will succeed more, learning has a tremendous effect on the brain in the individual level. Studies researched memory improvement showed that people that learn in every age reduce their chances to get Alzheimer.

Teams that constant learn always improve their quality, are a head of their competitors and effecting their organization for the better. In June 2008 the Celtics one their 17 championship since 1986 and here comes another important factor beside team spirit and it’s tradition. The same tradition that makes soldier go to war should be the motivation for a team of employees.
