Trouble is, following a guideline for action won't make us a high-performing team, any more than spending eight hours a day in the pool will make me an Olympic swimmer. Team spirit is a spontaneous, organic thing and this process is artificial and forced. And you can tell me that team members trust each other and therefore we should all trust one another until you're blue in the face, but trust to me is something that is earned, not something that is granted.
And yet I feel more a part of this team than I have in my previous two teams, so obviously we're doing something right. I just don't believe there is a magic formula for these things.
