Logically these categorical figures on our growing backlog against Americans and Japanese generated explanations, almost always related to the apparent higher intelligence of the Orientals. But Gomez Buendia strongly rejects this possibility: this difference so spectacular, many people jump to the conclusion that the Japanese are more intelligent than the Colombians. But if things look well, a Colombian is smarter than a Japanese: not in vain have the world-famous living and recursive, while the Japanese are rather boring and simplistic. (Underlining is mine). After reading the previous assertion might be more confused at first with the curious and hitherto paradoxical thesis of Dr. Hernando Gomez Buendia. But it is precisely from that moment when it begins the most interesting part of the writing and its consistency with our theme of teamwork: that Yes: two Japanese are much more intelligent than two Colombians.

I.e., our backlog starts from the moment that others understood that life is not a race in which gains to tip of virtues individual but eminently group activity. In Colombia, continuing with Gomez Buendia, each Colombian is going to somewhere and that is good, but Colombia is not going to nowhere and thats bad. This maxim may well apply to the company which has enthroned vertical and authoritarian communication, individual effort in search of the individual objective, the informal group or the CC to the Colombian conformed to sow tares instead of planting the constructive reflection and, in general, the unhealthy habits that makes us have not less than a century of backwardness with respect to the first world Nations. Noting the above we came to the conclusion that today as never imposes the need for reviewing the role of the Manager against its people, that is the end and after the people who it will play it all by its management, its objectives and its results. Is not now as it was accustomed in the past, of form teams of workers ganasueldos who prefer to talk of them instead of us, using a lexicon through which emerges, without However, their little sense of belonging and, therefore, of commitment to the organization. Well know damage that makes a work team Cafe gossip or rumor of hallway that grow quickly as snowball adding ever more fallacies, semi truths and well-to-do truths. As you can see, this is a typical situation of the group with a low morale and also with a limited sense of self leadership.
