What Motivates a Team: "15 Strong", Part 2

[Part 1: What we can learn from tonight's NBA Finals] Can you put a team together, and get results? Nope. It takes more. To build effective teams, you have to start with each individual member. Does that person totally dig the end-goal? If not, s/he may be undermining the team's success. Great teams start out seeking common goals, beyond any self-ambition. Says McKinsey's Jon R. Katzenbach:

When people work together toward a common objective, trust and commitment follow. Consequently, teams enjoying a strong common purpose and approach inevitably hold themselves responsible, both as individuals and as a team, for the team's performance. This sense of mutual accountability also produces the rich rewards of mutual achievement in which all members share. What we heard over and over from members of effective teams is that they found the experience energizing and motivating in ways that their "normal" jobs never could match.
