“Individual commitment to a group effort, that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” – Vince Lombardi
Teams need inspiration and positive reinforcement in order for success. One of the most obvious teams in society is a sports team. They work together to achieve a common goal and are inspired by a coach.
This week’s team bonding quote about working together comes from one of the greatest coaches in the history of football: Vince Lombardi. Most people recognize his name because every year the winner of the Super Bowl receives the Vince Lombardi Trophy, named after the man himself. However, he definitely earned the right to have his name remembered forever.
Lombardi is most known for coaching the Green Bay Packers and leading them to victory in the two first Super Bowls in the 1966 and 1967 football seasons. Before the Super Bowl was the Super Bowl, Lombardi led his team to three NFL Championship wins. During his time, he also coached the New York Giants and Washington Redskins. Many critics consider him the best and most successful coach in NFL history, and he was enshrined into the Hall of Fame in 1971.
Lombardi believed in dependence.
He thought that a triumphant football team leaned on one another for support and strength – working together. This feeling of “oneness” allowed his teams to unify and perform to the best of their abilities. This is also true with companies, societies, and civilizations. Having the trust and assurance that your teammates will pick you up and help you when you fall creates an environment that is both caring and triumphant.
