Education, training, and incentives provide a basis for developing an environment to promote teams and teamwork (Taplin, Foster, & Shortell 2013). Education and training programs that emphasize collaborative care and team building are essential.

This can partly be accomplished during the hiring process by stressing team and teamwork values to prospective hires (Taplin, Foster, & Shortell 2013). Continuing training and coaching as collaborations work can provide encouragement during the process.
An effective planning, scheduling and cost control system allows us to improve our efficiency in a wide array of areas.

All these things will help to hold us all more accountable in a post-job meeting by providing invaluable constructive feedback. This is needed and essential to our success but is dependent upon our ability to assimilate correct information.

If You’re Happy and You Know It: My Worldview To me, a worldview is how a person sees people, nature, and things, and how they all work together. I have generally seen the world as a positive place and, because one of my strengths is Input, I am able to gather information about the world and use that in my general understanding of how the world works. Knowing my strengths of Includer, Arranger, Achiever, Input and Positivity gives me a better understanding of how I view the world, myself, and where I see myself in the future. My worldview is rooted in different concepts, but is shaped around the idea that everyone should pursue his/her own happiness. If one person’s happiness comes from something that I don’t believe in, I don’t believe it is my right to tell him/her it’s wrong.
