Working As A Team

So very often, the majority of people that we come in contact with are driven by a “what’s in it for me” philosophy. Obviously, they have not read the writings of management guru John C. Maxwell, whose first indisputable law of teamwork is that “one is too small a number to achieve greatness.” If you are a manager, you have to learn how to delegate work to your team. You can’t do it all by yourself.

If you cherish a worthy cause – like increasing the representation of Hispanics in the federal workforce – you have to act as a coalition to bring about change. The power structure of the Federal Government will not change its current and past practices if they have to deal with just one individual. This is why I was so touched when I read the article below about the fellow U.S. classmates of jailed opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez who has rallied Venezuelans to confront the dictatorial regime of Nicolas Maduro.

  • I wonder, if these friends of Leopoldo, so supportive, are aware of Cuba's role in this tragedy, and of the enormous half-century plus suffering of the Cuban people. I wonder if they understand that the deathly poison contaminating Venezuela comes from the Castro's, and if so, will they extend their concern to those getting their heads bashed in Cuba, for instance members of the Las Damas de Blanco and others?
