even with C players you can win, as long as you have the A’s coach them and lead them. Most importantly, a good team is where each member works for the benefit of the entire team. This requires self-sacrifice, and is perhaps the single most mentioned point Maxwell comes back to time and again. Submitting what’s best for the individual to what’s best for the organization is critical. You are making an investment when you begin growing a team. Invest in what will only bring you the greatest return, get rid of weaker members and cultivate the stronger members. Build unity and keep everyone focused on core values by utilizing healthy competition. Always remember that ideas are the life of the company, and the best way to generate the best ideas is if you work as a team (Maxwell, 2011). Success is determined by your daily agenda. We make decisions and we manage decisions. You make the decision the decision doesn’t make you. You have got to make the decision by managing it. What you want to be tomorrow, you’ve got to do today. You need to visualize tomorrow but value today (Maxwell, 2011). Groups bring results but individual differing results as it allows the employees to work and think on their own, and come up with a result on their own as well. Katzenbach and Smith (1993).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
