6/2/2013 8:14:21 PMI have not been part of a high performance team, but when I think of a high-performance I think of Army teams, suchas infantry. If they are a high-performance team they work together like a well oiled machine. They knoweveryone's strengths and weaknesses and they complement each other in a way that balances those out. A plus iswhen they know each other so well that they seem to know what each other is thinking. Also the longer they worktogether on similar "projects" the more they know what each will do in each situation. Any conflicts are handled atthe very lowest level and they all agree how conflicts will be handled.

I have had the pleasure in being part of a high-performance team in the military. Our administration team exceeded all challenges with excellence. Every member of theadministration team was either sailor of the quarter or sailor of the year. Everyone on the teamwas highly skilled and also any one on the team can lead on a project. I believe the qualities thatmade our team high performance are:Great Communication - all ideas were welcomed and everyone was encouraged to share ideas.Well-Defined Roles - Each member knew their jobs and stayed focus on his/her roles.Valued Diversity - We all come from different backgrounds and expertise adds more value to theteam.High Sense of Accountability- Everyone on the team is held to very high standards.I believe no matter how great the individuals of a high performance team maybe, but truegreatness is working in the team concept to achieve the common goal.Goal Oriented - Always keep the team goal in mind.

I had an opportunity of being a member of a high performance team in the past. A project was launched sometimes but the project failed due to some logistics andgovernment regulations then, the management looked at the performance of the teamthat handled the project and there were a lot of flaws on the part of that team, hencethe need to inaugurate another team to revisit the project because the project is of utmost importance to the community, that was how our team came on board and atlast we laugh last because we really achieved the goal of the project and within the budget. the followings are the secret of our success:
Team Spirit
: Every member of the team see each other as one, and we work towards the same goal and nobody allow his/her own interest to jeopardize theinterest of the group.
: The communication within the team and with the upper management was superb, because every team member were carried along with whatis going on the project.Our team went deep down to know why and what made the first team to fail? Wereally explored all resources to see that we achieved our goal.
No stone unturned
: Every necessary steps that needs to be taken were taken tosee that we achieved our goal. We didn't cut corner as the first team did which madethem to fail.
Unity in Diversity:
All team members were able to accommodate each othersdespite their individual difference, this really help in working together and the resultwas achieved.

I see a lot of my classmates mentioned the armed force when it comes to teams, and I actuallyconcur with this statement. The soldiers, marines and sailor have to depend on each other for their survival and their life. Unfortunately the corporate section has trouble with teamwork unless itis a high performance organization or a project team. Some of the qualities of high performanceteams are execution, and that is getting most people in your organization to function at a highlevel. So a performance organization can get most of the right people…to do the right thing…atthe right time.

industries, in software industry self motivation and closer relations in team is one of the important parameter. If theproblem is analyzed well and team has a good leader which is not only project manager high-performance can bekept until completing the project. Problems has different difficulties and ability to solve it is a distinguishing talent itmay be in a war or in critical time in life. leaders are the only roles which helps to solve it by finding the right person.

6/5/2013 7:45:27 PMThe only high performance team I have been part of was my 2007 detachment. We deployed to the middle east andwas so successful that we became the model for all detachments to follow for both coasts. The reason we wereso successful was that leadership of the team listened to proposals, took action on the ones that were evenmediocre. The lowest person want to ensure the team succeeded so they looked for ways to improve. Since their suggestions were take on they were willing to make more. This improved the lines of communication and free flow of ideas. The team was able to fix the big issues fast and tackle the small ones that plagued other detachments. By thetime we were done, we had successfully completed 105% of our missions, did it at the lowest cost per flight hour,and had such a high level of moral that the team still talks to this day, even though we have all gone our separateways. This is what makes a team great.

6/5/2013 10:34:49 PMI can truly attest to being a member of a high performance team thanks to service in the Marines. While a MarineOfficer Candidate, our Commanding Officer (CO) challenged us to put together a team of Navy and Marine OCs as aperformance drill team. We did so and were paraded around the unit and campus thanks to the leadership of RickBaker, USN. He was very creative in his routines but exact in delivery and to keep up we had to match. As aCorpsman, he trained with and worked directly with Marines so he knew how to relate to us just as easily as hisfellow Seamen. We were given a final challenge to perform in Mardi Gras. These challenges did nothing more thatempower us to go above and beyond in training for the event. Unfortunately, Mr. Baker was injured due to aperformance misjudgment and had to rotate out. Even being a man down, we were able to carry on and workedeven harder to make our team leader proud of our actions. We were empowered by the task at hand and the desireto succeed at all costs. This is one quality of a high performance team that is inherit in the US Armed forces. Thisand there is a sense of unit cohesion, where we are more like a family than a simple team. We felt each other's painand worked to make the others proud.

6/8/2013 1:52 PMI have been part of several high performance teams but the one that has left the most lasting impression would be afighter/strikefighter aircraft live ordnance upload/download team. I have had the privilege of playing a role as eachmember of this elite style team by coming up the ranks as a Team Member (TM), then Team Leader (TL), then Quality Assurance Safety Observer (QASO) and finally Ordnance Flightdeck Crew Leader.A team typically consists of 4 TMs, 1 TL, 1 QASO and Crew Leader overseas multiple teams at a time. Synchronicityand clear, precise, loud commands are required during any given live ordnance upload evolution and can bechallenging when there are several strickfighter aircraft blazing hot jet exhaust down your throat as you and theaircraft are battling sound dominance as you TL the commands to your TMs. The QASO ensures everybody isfollowing “exact” protocol so that we do not go home in body bags, nor do our shipmates carrying-out other ops ondeck.A typical GBU or free falling conventional bomb upload with 2 TMs on the nose of the bomb, 2 TMs on the tail of thebomb, 1 TL working the bomb rack while simultaneously yelling commands and the QASO off to the side observingevery move goes as follows: 
“Nose” (visual confirmation from TMs they are ready
“Tail” (visual confirmation from TMs they are ready)
“Bring it Up”
Down nose, up tail, up tail I said!!!
