Family team for success

When we hear about the world of sport or business, the word team often pops up. And a team is made up of people, who are the ones who make the success of any organization possible. However, we took to the streets and things might not turn out that way; it’s no secret that one of the most visible signs of the many problems we face as a society is excessive individualism.

The two things seem contradictory; we want more and more personal autonomy, but our mouths are also filled with expressions such as: “I am part of a team”, “success belongs to the team”, which leads us to a balance complicated which makes our existence difficult. I to succeed these successes which are said to be part allude to the 5 cs calls, which all equipment must have to get results. They are well known, namely: commitment, communication, coordination, trust, complementarity.

    Breaking down individualistic dynamics in the family

    It is perhaps in the conjugal and family environment that this dichotomy (individualism versus team) is most palpable.We want to be under a protective umbrella of something sturdy, but at the same time, we are unwilling to allow our freedom to be undermined. Sometimes it is difficult to show that the family is a team, a group of people who have common goals and set goals to achieve them.

    And yet, it is perhaps the place where the 5cs have the greatest capacity for empowerment and obtaining visible and beneficial results for each member of the family unit. Because? We analyze the 5 c.

    1 engagement

    Nothing in life can be done satisfactorily if there is not a minimum of commitment. Anything you do in a forced or unintentional way can lead to things being done in a trivial way and in no way beneficial to yourself and to an organization. According to Lehman, “commitment turns a promise into reality, it is action higher than words, it is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.”

    In a family organization, it is necessary that its members feel comfortable and happy at home, committing to enter into coexistence agreements that they represent a benefit for all its members, being able to even give up something personal. One way or another, each family member is responsible for the rest and this is only achieved if the overall commitment is based on a personal commitment to oneself. And this commitment must be eternal.

    2. Communication

    In a technologically hyper-connected world, the paradox arises that every time it costs us more work to have human communication naturally. In a relationship, marriage, or family relationship, fluid, positive, and active communication is the key to strong, lasting relationships. And this effective communication or dialogue is born from the base, from the beginnings of the relationship. A couple who dialogue from the start will be a couple prepared for their communication with the descendants.

    Babies should be confident in communication and dialogue from the cradle. Active listening, good work of empathy, outrageous lack of criticism, using only one that is constructive, will allow a set of skills that are very necessary for life.

    It’s more and more palpable the large amount of incommunicado detention which is observed in family environments and which is a seed of conflict that if they are not cut in time, they will lead to undesirable circumstances. But marital communication or dialogue is an art and as such it must be learned, it must be matured, it must be managed and it must evolve. Today’s world needs, more than ever, great communicators, not the great masses, but face-to-face.

      3. Coordination

      The SAR defines coordination “as the action or effect of coordination”. When we talk about a coordinated team, we talk about being there a process and use of interdependent strategies and models among its members to achieve common goals. For a team to have good coordination, you need someone to lead it, you need a leader.

      In the family, this role corresponds to the father and the mother, equally and in unison. It means that they are the target of the group’s overall needs and that they are consistent with what they think, say and do.

      The great leader does not give orders, simply his consistency allows him to be an example and, at the same time, product of respect, always seeks ambitious and realistic goals for himself and for the organization, seeking development maximum staff of its members. This is why it is essential that the union of father and mother be strong, with clear rules and commitments. Only if the parents are strong will the family be strong.

      4. Confidence

      The family is a community of people whose sense of belonging is based on invisible bonds based on trust. that promote a fulfilling relationship. This will lead to a strong base of support for situations that arise throughout daily life.

      Respect and accept each member of the family as he is, promote a space of freedom and effective communication, teach children a real freedom that leads them to find the principles that guide human nature, understand that freedom has crossed limits that his own personal principles endangered, these are essential points in a relationship of family trust. This does not mean that the family solves all problems, but it gives guidelines for expressing and sharing them.

      Trust is based on credibility and respectThis is why the example of the father and the mother solidly united, will allow the children a personal and social growth which will allow them to believe in themselves and in the family.

      5. Complementarity

      A team is made up of a series of professionals who master a certain field because their qualities allow it and, at the same time, are able to replace other members at specific times because they are also competent in other fields. To achieve this, cohesion and personal and collective responsibility in the tasks to be accomplished are necessary. In a family, these elements are essential to create a positive and nurturing environment.

      The division of household chores by putting the skills of each member at the service of others by sharing responsibilities and results, should lead to results and family harmony very quickly, efficiently and effectively. It is also a way of starting to instill in children from an early age the positive of these actions.
