The JEF team is simply a group of people who work together to achieve a common purpose. This special team is assembled to perform tasks that plan or find ways to improve the lives of those in the community of its targeted group. At JEF, we have the rare ability to set aside personal prejudices and the willingness to take responsibility as a group.
Our work is characterized by having a sense of purpose to achieve a clear, specific goal that all members believe is important to attain.
This team consists of members who are capable of contributing to the achievement of the goal based on their level of knowledge or expertise.
Our success is brought about by a spirit of cooperation. All members work together to achieve a specific goal. The JEF team has strong leaders who can keep everybody on the same page.
We also have a set of rules that determines our operating procedures. These rules help to keep the team on track and eliminate ambiguities. All decisions, as a rule, is debated by the team members on a decision before it can be implemented.
The JEF team is held accountable as a whole for their failures as well as their successes. The Team leaders foster an environment within the team where its members are free to offer praise and criticism of other members with the idea that team results are what matters, not individual contributions.
