All high performing teams are motivated to exceed (internal and external) customer expectations. Individual team members work hard to deliver on their own priority tasks everyday, as they do not want to let their work colleagues down. They are also motivated to help other teammates and work colleagues if others need a hand, and this occurs without instruction.
Team members are likely to be resilient, have a sense of humour and positivity even when difficulties arise, and genuinely know that no problem is too big for the team to handle. Motivated work teams naturally work well as a team. Motivated work teams are aligned with the business needs and work hard to meet or exceed expectations every day. They require very little supervision or instruction, although they do respond well to support and recognition of their combined efforts
