If you were to ask anyone living in the community of Belgrade, where Bayer Built is located, what it means to be part of a team, they’ll likely reference the very recent State Basketball tournament. The Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa boys brought home the Class A Championship Trophy again for the second time in three years! You can read all about it here.
How’d they do it? They lost last year to a team they were expected to have beaten, easily. One could chalk up that season to a young team without solid leadership but history shows a team needs more than experience and a confident leader to be successful. The Denver Broncos had leadership and all kinds of experience on their side, along with a season full of wins, but they failed miserably at the Super Bowl…I’m still sad about that.
We’re all currently immersed in the excitement of the NCAA Basketball Championship. I wonder how many spectators chose their brackets based on the way each team supports their own teammates? A team differs from a group by having a common goal and complementary skill sets. They succeed when they know how to help each other develop their talents and perform at their best.
Working in teams at Bayer Built creates an atmosphere where we know our co-workers, what they do best and how we can work together to be successful. Understanding what we have to do, as a team, in order to sell, prepare and ship the products we offer in a timely manner is critical. And in the true form of a team, we share our mistakes as well as our successes.
