“Interdependent people combine their own efforts with the efforts of others to achieve their greatest success.” – Stephen Covey
Team Building Quotes
The right one can fire up a crowd or illicit an array of emotions. A great quote has the ability to encapsulate an idea in a poetic fashion. A great quote can inspire one to action to get the job done.
This week’s team building quote comes from Stephen Covey, who was a leader in his industry and probably best known for his book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The quote here comes from habit #6, synergy. Independence is something we are molded to possess as we grow, but when it comes to team building, interdependence is the trait that will serve your team best, especially during any number of our team building events.
Covey believed that 1+1=3 or more.
When two or more forces are united, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Isn’t that true for running a successful business? When all of your human capital is correctly and strategically placed the business will thrive.
Interdependence and synergy can really start to happen for a group when they are focused on fun. The stress and pressure of the daily work grind can really be removed and allow for the employees to exercise their valuable skills in a playful fashion. This will translate to better quality of work and higher satisfaction over time.

In business and in life, people are rewarded and praised for success, which creates a culture where we don’t learn from failure.
