Make Teamwork the Foundation

“Toyota’s assumption is that if you make teamwork the foundation of the company and develop strong leaders, individual performers will give their hearts and souls to contribute to the team and make the company successful. …The Toyota Way is not about lavishing goodies on people whether they have earned them or not; it is about simultaneously challenging and respecting team members.”
