Teamwork makes the dream work!
Henry Ford, founder of The Ford Motor Company is largely regarded as one of the most innovative individuals our country has ever produced. His implementation of the assembly line for car manufacturing, not only created wealth and prosperity for his company, it also did something else – it democratized car ownership and set the stage for the United States to become the economic superpower for more than a century. He did this through the power of teamwork
The Leadership Challenge identifies Behavior #3 as “Develops cooperative relationships among the people he/she works with.”
Even though he was the innovator, one of his most famous quotes illustrates how he was also passionate about relationships…
Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.
Henry Ford (1863 – 1947, American industrialist)
