It is not unusual to hear someone say about their co-workers, “we are like a family.” Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix, created a lot of nationwide conversation when he made it clear to employees that, ‘We’re a team, not a family.’ (Reference the public Netflix Culture slide deck). There are a lot of differences between a team and a family. As family members, we encourage each other to do our best unconditionally. You are a part of your family whether you are successful or not. Membership in your family never changes. As a team, our participation is conditional, based on our contribution to the team’s success. Teams improve by constantly upgrading their talent. In order for the team to win, we need people who are the best, not just do their best.
At Crimson Agility we stand behind the concept of working together, caring about each other, and feeling like we ‘belong’. We are all part of a team striving to provide our clients with the best service, quality and customer satisfaction in the delivery of our work. We evaluate results on a quarterly basis. We recognize our failures and celebrate our sucessess. This can only be achieved by constantly correcting the course, improving what works and getting rid of what doesn’t. Fostering a team atmosphere, not a family atmosphere, is how we will achieve our next level of growth. Team building events like Crimson Agility’s 3rd Quarter Events last week are a great way to inject some playful competition and get to know each other at a more personal level. Knowing who your teammates are at a personal level, makes them ‘human’ and leads to an environment in which we can support each other to achieve corporate success.
Great leaders, self-starters, team players and outside the box thinkers are what the team’s success is all about. We are a growing team and we looking for our next great team members. If you think you have what it takes, check out our current job openings. Your success is our success.
Thanks for stopping by!
