The game of American football is a team sport, many would agree.

I've been a football fan since I was 7 years old many years ago. 

But because many people aren't football fans in my work I try not to use too many football comparisons when I speak about teamwork.

Baseball analogies are much safer. More common experience with that sport, whether it be women who played softball or anyone who played kickball in phys ed class in school.

So, I was excited to be watching my New York Jets play on Sunday as they lost their 10th game in a row, going winless thus far on the season.

Don't get me wrong. I wasn't excited to be watching an inept team give away another opportunity to come out on top, but what occurred early in the game reinforced my belief about teamwork.

What occurred has huge implications for you creating championship performance from teams at your company.

Watch this 54-second video to see what I mean.

I've been saying for 20-years teamwork is an individual sport and that "teamwork never fails, individuals fail teamwork!"

When you adopt this philosophy it will transform accountability in your workplace.

I was so excited to find and capture a specific example of a broadcaster and former major league athlete make the case for me based on a live play in a game.

What do you think? Is teamwork an "individual sport?" How do you see it? What is your experience?
