More Inspirational Teamwork Quotes ...

Here are some inspirational teamwork quotes that have inspired me.

Quotes like these can make a huge difference when you want to motivate your team, or encourage a shift in attitude.

I've separated this collection from the main index page of 

Team Building Quotes. Why?

Because they don't fit neatly into a specific category of teamwork quotes. However, they are relevant to leaders and teams in the workplace.

And lastly...

something which is not an inspirational teamwork quote at all!

However, I've personally found it very inspiring. So I wanted to share it, just in case you haven't come across it before.

Our Deepest Fear By Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking

So that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We were all meant to shine, as children do.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,

We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same

As we are liberated from our own fear,

Our presence automatically liberates others.

Here's to letting your own light shine, and encouraging your teammates to do the same!
