11 Commandments for an Enthusiastic Team

1) Help each other be right - not wrong.
2) Look for ways to make new ideas work - not for reasons
3) If in doubt - check it out! Don't make negative assumptions about each other.
4) Help each other win and take pride in each other's victories.
5) Speak positively about each other and about your team at every oppotunity.
6) Maintain a positive mental attitude no matter what the circumstances.
7) Act with initiative and courage as if it all depends on you.
8) Do everything with entusiasm - it's contagious
9) Whatever you want - give it away.
10) Don't lose faith - never give up

You must work for Publix Supermarkets. Our VP has the same commandments. They most definitely apply to whatever team you're building. Thanks for the great post.

Coach Jim
As the author of "The 11 Commandments for an Enthusiastic Team" I'm thrilled to see both sports and corporate teams use them. Because we've had trouble protecting this intellectual property I'd just ask that you attach the (C) to each posting. It should read (c) The Ian Percy Corporation.

You can also get both large and personal posters of the "Commandments" as well as The 11 Commandments book and CD set at Ian Percy motivational keynote speakers' official site as a keynote speaker on leadership business team building change and inspiration

Coach Jim - I'd love to get in touch with your VP at Publix if you don't mind sending me his contact information. My email is Ian@IanPercy.com

I hope all your teams achieve amazing results!

This is our statement, I don't know where I got it from.

Our coaching philosophy is to let the girls have fun while learning the game of softball. If the players are not having fun, they will not perform as well on the field. We expect the girls to give 100% during practice and games.
Here are our 10 Commandments for the Team.
1. Respect each other's differences.
2. Give 100% effort both on and off the field.
3. Put each other's needs before your own.
4. Be confident in our team and yourselves.
5. Never give up.
6. Have dignity and pride in everything we do.
7. Be responsible for ourselves and our teammates.
8. Be dedicated to our team.
9. Communicate with each other both on and off the field.
10. Grow together as a team.
