I chose this quote as the introduction to the chapter on working in teams in "Hot Tips For Career Chicks" because it gets to the essence of why team work is important.
So often it's tempting to want to do everything ourselves. Saves all those messy negotiation, communication and other-people-having-their-own-opinion issues.
But we can't do everything ourselves.
And working with others can make us and our contribution better and stronger.
It's why when teams work - they really work. And why the skill to work in teams is integral to career success.
I'm just saying...what do you think?
