# 6. TEAM WORK: Six (6) IMPACT tools for raising the bar

“Two heads are better than one” says Ecclesiastics 4:9.
Some said TEAM means Together, Everyone Achieves More. It is very true and nothing less! Team work has raised the bars of many folks in the world’s history;

The first to list here are Orville Wright and Wilbur Wright, popularly known as Orville brothers who worked together and invented the first airplane though the sharing of mechanical ideas and skills to raise the bar globally as far as 17th December 1903.

Next are John Wesley and Charles Wesley co-operate founder of the Methodist church, affectionately called the Wesley brothers. They worked together as missionaries and raised their bars high to a height difficult to attain even today! John Wesley died on 2nd March 1791 at age 88 with over 40,000 individual sermons preached. Charles Wesley died on 29th March 1788 with uncountable number of poems written and more than 6500 Christian hymns written. All these happened because of committed team work.

In 2006, the highest scientific award in pharmaceutical industry known as Discoveries award went to three scientists; Henry Davies Jnr, Margaret Van Heek and Kevin Alton for the discovery of Zetia. Zetia is a drug used to break down cholesterol level of patients and advanced “statins” which existed twenty years ago. Zetia was used to treat cardiovascular diseases and is 400 times potent than other best drug with the same desired effect. This is excellence through team work. Through this team work, Davies, Van Heek and Alton saved lives of millions of patients.

Working together brings about a higher output.
