I received this list of priorities in another email from a co-worker.

I am not sure who originally composed these, but they are solid guidelines and heuristics to reach for if you are working as a part of a team in any survival/disaster situation or scenario.



1. If one is working we are all working.
2. If one is hurt we are all hurt.
3. If one is fighting we are all fighting.
4. You do what has to be done without having to be told.
5. We are all leaders.
6. None of us are too good for any task.
7. Quiet professionalism is the way.
8. Stay out of it until you've earned the right to get into it.
9. Actions drown out the whisper of words.
10. We may fight like cats and dogs with each other, but we will turn like a rapid pack on an outsider.
11. When you walk into that team room, you better be able to do your job to the level to which you were trained.
12. The maximum effective range of an excuse is exactly zero meters.
13. If the team calls, you go. It doesn't matter the hour or the mission.
14. Be the Teammate you want to have.
15. If you take, you owe. Back in the day, it wasn't just schools, bonuses were the same way.
16. Everything you do is a reflection on your team. 17. You never refuse a teammate in need. 18. Being accepted should be hard.
19. You are responsible for maintaining your skill sets. All our lives depend on it.
20. Improvement and selection is a continuous and ongoing process that ends the day we die.
21. No sniveling.

I think I'm going to post this up in my sales office. Great guidelines that flow over to a sales team atmosphere.
