Why Don’t People Work Together?

Sad But True
My daughter brought home a failing grade from a Chemistry project last week. When I asked her why she got an F, she said, “My lab partner won’t do any work and I was graded on her performance, too.” She isn’t responsible for her partner so she suffers the consequences of a bad match-up. This is a great lesson for life. The school system is actually teaching her that this concept of pairing with someone who won’t work isn’t functional.  Why would someone who does outstanding work want to work with a bunch of people who don’t care?

There was a television advertisement out several years ago featuring a superstar professional football receiver. He was surrounded by the press and one said the old sick saying, “There’s no I in TEAM.” His answer was, “There’s no WE either.” The high achievers resent the lack of productivity and the pay disparity they get for working with the low performers who won’t work.
