1. Mission common solid

1. Mission common solid

In Sparta everything revolved around the militia. The goal was simple and clear: to win all wars. In the Agoge (war academy for young men) obedience, sacrifice, discipline, bravery, self-control and the best tactics to become a warrior were taught.

What is your common mission? Is there any discipline among your team members?

2. Strong investment in organizational culture

From the first training the Spartan warrior knew that no soldier was worth more than the other and all fought as one body, always in column and perfect order. Having this level of requirements generated (and in any team it should happen) the training of the highest level of talent.

Is yours as solid as that? That coordinated is your team?

3. Teamwork is based on trust

3. Teamwork is based on trust

They were not troops, they were family. The Spartans' tests of trust were about walking blindly through fire with the voice of a comrade as a guide or going into an unknown mountain with the directions of a subordinate. 

These days it is about trusting in one's own ability and that of the other, that dependence is a positive dynamic of order and not control, in personal and organizational integrity, in the strength of the relationships that develop at the working level and that will be fruitful if they are given.

At this level is your confidence in your team members?

4. It never hurts to have something inspirational

We are talking about elements of strong identity, signs that identify your brand, your company, your tribe. In Sparta, before going into battle, they would sing the theme of Castor, in honor of their war hero, and with those notes they would go out inspired for battle.

Is there an element that unites your team like that?
