Motivation is important as it drives us, according to (Robbins & Judge, p. 202), “motivation is defined as the processes that account for an individual’s intensity, direction, and persistence of effort toward attaining a goal”.

I and my team members did an assessment of ourselves and I realized that I actually had the chance to see what kind of team members I had been working with over the last five weeks. Although, it is obvious by the work they produce week-to-week, I could also tell who is the leader type, the take-over type, the lazy person, the slacker, the outgoing, and many more other attributes or strengths.
The differences in attitudes with my team members did vary, we all seem to have plenty of patience. With everyone living in all parts of the world, we all are busy, but we seemed to have glued ourselves together pretty good.
