Here is quote from Tom Phillips to help with the development of a team building principle. It starts with a gifted leader.
“A team must have a gifted and committed leader. Leaders are those who serve the vision. To accomplish it, they serve their team. Some leaders are visionaries who have very little administrative skill, and others are well balanced and have the ability to work administratively as well. A team, however, will do well to assist the leader in as many administrative areas as possible so that he can continue to be the tip of the arrow, forging the future as other develop the present.”
Tom Phillips in Leaders on Leadership. “Building a Team to Get the Job Done”, chapter 11.
